David Wright is feeling good progressing after a right hamstring strain landed him on the 15-day disabled list Aug. 3. Though the Mets’ All-Star third baseman has not run at all (he has done strengthening work limited to the upper body) he is convinced he will return this season. “I don’t think in my mind there’s any question” Wright said before the Mets’ 5-3 win over the Braves Tuesday night at Citi Field. Now for the $64000 question: When? Wright has no timetable for rehab in Florida or playing in Queens. “It’s actually probably a good thing but the medical staff doesn’t really give me too much of an outlying plan. I like to plan things out and know where I’m going to be. ... I come in and I’ve been successful with everything they’ve thrown at me and the next day I advance a little bit slowly but surely. It’s frustrating because I want to be out there but at the same time you don’t want this to become a chronic problem ... because you didn’t rehab it properly” Wright said. But he feels it is important to get back this season.
