Back, shoulder and neck issues have limited the Mets captain to just 75 games over the past four seasons. He began his latest comeback in August at Class A St. Lucie, hitting a combined.171 with a double and two RBIs in 41 at-bats during 10 games for St. Lucie and two with Triple-A Las Vegas.

"When I really started ramping up baseball stuff. when I woke up in the mornings, something is always a concern", Wright said. If Wright does, in fact, retire, the Mets will be off the hook for the $27 million he is still owed for the final two seasons of the eight-year, $138 million contract he signed with the team December of 2012.
