New York Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright is going 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 what was called cramping in his hamstring for a few days, strained it when he legged out an infield hit on Friday.
He offered little resistance when he was removed from the game after being attended to behind first base.
New York recalled Mike Baxter from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, and he was in uniform for the afternoon game against Kansas City.
Justin Turner is taking Wright's place at third base, and first baseman Josh Satin is filling his No. 3 slot in the batting order.
