David Wright's injured hamstring is "doing very well," the Mets said in a statement Friday.

But the rest of that sentence about the Mets' captain and third baseman included this: "in the last few days, he has experience some lower back pain."

Wright underwent an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, and no structural damage was discovered. The Mets said Wright will resume baseball activities when the discomfort in his back lessens.

Wright injured his hamstring in an April 14 game against the Phillies trying to steal second base in the eighth inning. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list the following day.
