Wright's last out was a loud liner to left. Hope that he can make it back.

I'd love to know.... is he playing his way back so he can play in September at Citifield to:

a) Go out on his terms (make it back to the majors, then retire)
b) Get a jump on playing in 2019

Without a setback aren't they required to activate him in 20 days?

I believe that would be right smack after the roster expansion.

Correct. His last day on rehab can be August 31. He is 18 healthy days away from being in the lineup in San Francisco on September 1 (or 2).

Can't he agree to extend his rehab if need-be?

The minor league schedule ends around the same time. I guess he will stay at the complex if he's not ready to go, but if he's played in 15 games or so by then w/o any setbacks then he prob will come up some time in early September.

So if Wright comes back, does Frazier move to a part-time player? I know Wright will need days off, but is he the defacto starting 3B upon return? Will he get time at 1B? Will Frazier get time at 2B (something he mentioned during his free agency)? Interesting shuffle they'll have to manage.

With the Yankees down in Florida, The Athletic sent Marc Carig up to Port St. Lucie for a feature on David Wright.

Link

I know it requires a subscription but it's really a great read. Basically DW wakes up each day not knowing whether it will be the back, neck or shoulder that will be troubling him.

Some interesting tidbits:
- Wright is going to attempt to play 3 games in a row this weekend, starting tonight. He's been on a 2 on, 1 off schedule so far.
- When Wright got his first hit on rehab, Jay Bruce requested that the ball be rolled out of play.
- Luis Carpio asked him who the best pitchers he ever faced were. Remarkably, two of the three he mentioned are no longer with us (Halladay, Fernandez). Smoltz is the third.

I was curious, and I'm sure many of you are too...

Wright vs. Halladay: .185/.214/.333/.548 (27 AB's, 13 K's, 1 BB)

Wright vs. Fernandez: .000/.091/.000/.091 (10 AB's, 2 K's, 1 BB)

Wright vs. Smoltz: .217/.309/.457/.766 (46 AB's, 21 K's, 7 BB)
