David Wright has barely had enough time to soak in the feeling of playing again after his most recent hamstring injury before being taken out of a game with an apparent injury again. Wright was hit in the helmet by Milwaukee Brewers rookie pitcher Johnny Hellweg. Fortunately Wright passed all his concussion tests.
David Wright passed his concussion tests, according to source. Mets say he just left as precaution. #mets #brewers

The Mets recently activated Wright to get him some action before the season came to a close. They are not playing for anything besides experience and the fans right now, but the Mets are building something. The more often they can get their team together on the field, the better chance the eventual finished product has. Wright is clearly a big part of that finished product.
Wright is hitting .313/.396/.524 with 18 home runs this season. He made his 7th career All-Star Game this year and was the unofficial ambassador of the game. With the ASG being held in New York and at Citi Field, Wright took it upon himself to lead tours, do interviews, and make sure everyone enjoyed the experience. This is why the Mets made him their franchise player.
