The New York Mets said that third baseman David Wright will return for the team's final homestand on September 29.

David Wright announced Thursday he will be done playing after a brief return later this month.

Wright became the Mets' all-time leader in hits September 26, 2012, with an infield single against the Pirates, passing Ed Kranepool's 1,418. It's truly been an honor to take the field with you and serve as your captain.

It's expected that the price tag could be as high as $1,200. "Apple has sent us some dummies/samples", an Arktis spokeswoman said. Apple shares were down 0.9 percent at $221.75 in midday trading.


Although not officially retiring, Wright is not expected to play again after this season.

Wright has two more years and $27 million remaining after this season on the eight-year, $138 million contract he signed in November 2012.

"Physically and the way I feel right now, and from everything that the doctors have told me, there's not going to be any improvement", Wright said.

And, while he will be back on the field, Wright said he didn't see the possibility of his baseball career extending beyond 2018 as a possibility due to his health issues. 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.

Mets players were watching as Wright addressed the media. "Whether it's my back, my neck, my shoulder, some days that pain in any one of those three areas, or all three of the areas, can be moderate and manageable".
