David Wright left Tuesday night's game with a right hamstring injury and appears headed for the disabled list.
Wright will undergo an MRI on Wednesday morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, according to the New York Mets. The team has already has decided to fly in Eric Campbell from Triple-A Las Vegas as a likely replacement.
Wright suffered the injury while stealing a base in the club's win over the Philadelphia Phillies. He suggested it likely is smarter to miss two weeks now than to try to play through the injury and potentially worsen his situation.
"A couple of feet before the bag I just felt my hamstring grab," Wright said. "I thought it might be something that I could stretch out a little bit. But then I took a couple of secondary leads and just realized that if the ball was put in play I wouldn't have been able to do anything positive, that's for sure. It took a couple a pitches and it didn't get any better. That's when I thought I'd rather say something and hopefully catch this thing before I make the same mistake I made a couple of years ago, when I tried to play through it and made it worse.
"Anytime you feel something like that, you hope that it goes away. And this just didn't go away."
