Mets’ Wright goes on DL

– New York Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright went on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring injury.

The Mets made the move Saturday, one day after Wright gingerly left the field in the 10th inning of New York’s 4-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. Wright, who had been dealing with cramping in his hamstring for a few days, strained it when he legged out an infield hit Friday.

New York recalled Mike Baxter from Triple-A.
