• David Wright, who's been on the disabled list since Aug. 3 with a strained right hamstring, is heading to Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Thursday to continue rehabbing his injury. Mets manager Terry Collins said Wright will first track pitches but won't swing since he's not ready to swing "100 percent" yet. Then the team hopes Wright can play in games by Sunday or Monday, Collins said.
• The Mets called up catcher Anthony Recker from Triple-A Las Vegas to fill Buck's spot on the roster. Recker spent most of this season with the Mets before they optioned him on Aug. 20. In 38 games with New York, he hit .193 with five home runs and 16 RBIs. Recker played in five games with Las Vegas and was 4-for-10 with a home run and four RBIs.
New York also recalled pitcher Robert Carson from Las Vegas. He was on the Mets' roster from April 21-June 10. During that stint, Carson had an 8.50 ERA in 13 appearances. In 42 games with Las Vegas, he was 3-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 11 saves.
