The Mets will have to fight on without their leader for a little while.
The team placed their captain, David Wright, on the 15-day disabled list this morning after he injured his right hamstring yesterday. “The Pride of Whitestone,” Mike Baxter, was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace him on the roster.
Justin Turner started at third base for the 1:10 p.m. game today.
Roster Move: The #Mets place David Wright on the 15-Day DL with a right hamstring strain. Mike Baxter was recalled from Las Vegas (AAA).
