"For me to play back-to-back games, it was just survival mode", Wright explained.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright announced Thursday afternoon that his playing career is likely over after the team's final homestand, citing health reasons.

Wright is now slated to start at third base for the Mets on Saturday, Sept. 29, and it sounds as though that start could mark the final game of a brilliant career that was unfortunately cut short by significant injuries.

"I've been wearing this uniform or something similar for half my life now", Wright said at a news conference.

The 35-year-old hasn't played for the Mets since May 27, 2016. The third baseman is expected to start against the Miami Marlins on September 29.

"When I really started ramping up baseball stuff. when I woke up in the mornings, something is always a concern", Wright said.

The longtime and often-injured Met didn't use the word retirement during his press conference today, but fighting through tears he thanked the organization, his teammates and the fans, while also acknowledging that his body won't allow him to play the game of baseball again.

"Physically, and the way I feel right now, and from what the doctors have told me, there's not going to be any improvement", Wright said. "So yeah, I don't see [playing beyond September] as a possibility".

In 13 seasons with the Mets, Wright is a career.296 hitter with 242 home runs and 970 RBI.

The insurance policy the Mets took out on that contract reportedly covers 75 percent of that salary for any time spent on the 60-day DL, so the Mets will only owe him a total of $6.75MM between the 2019 and 2020 seasons, barring a buyout agreement with the insurance company.
