Mike Puma of the New York Post reported the news.
Wright, 35, made his return Aug. 12 with Single-A St. Lucie. He had six hits in 32 at-bats and drove in two runs.
The two sides are beginning to run out of time to decide Wright's next step. His maximum 20-day window to be in the minors ends Friday. The Mets and Wright could choose to extend that together, but Las Vegas' season ends Sept. 3.
Rosters expand to 40 players Saturday, and that seems like when Wright would rejoin the major league roster. Wright sat out Sunday and Monday's game in Single-A after playing four games in five nights.
“He just didn’t feel comfortable playing three in a row,” manager Mickey Callaway told reporters. “Going to reevaluate where he’s at physically.”
Wright has not played since the 2016 season and has appeared in just 75 games over the last four years. He has undergone multiple surgeries in hopes of correcting back, neck and shoulder issues. A setback in March held him out of all baseball activities until June.
