NEW YORK – New York Mets third baseman David Wright was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a right hamstring injury.

Wright gingerly left the field Friday night in the 10th inning of New York’s 4-2 victory against Kansas City. 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.

New York recalled Mike Baxter from Triple-A Las Vegas.
