David Wright was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a mild strain of the right hamstring, the Mets announced Wednesday.

Wright, the Mets' captain and third baseman, underwent an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan and received a cortisone shot, the team said.

The Mets said Wright will rest for the two days and resume baseball activities "as tolerated."

Wright injured himself in the eighth inning of Tuesday's night win over the Phillies at Citi Field. Wright broke to steal second base and felt a pull in his right hamstring. He tried sticking it out. But after taking a few secondary leads, Wright asked out of the game.
