The Mets just held a press conference to announce what they're doing with third baseman and captain David Wright.

As is typical for the Mets there has been confusion as to what the actual plan was, with Wright strongly suggesting he was ready to play while the Mets seemed inclined to hold him back.

Check out footage of Wright's press conference, as well as some of the reactions to today's news, in the tweets embedded below. "I can not express my gratitude and appreciation for everything this organization has done and continues to do for me". He's scheduled to start at third base on the second-to-last day of the season against the Miami Marlins. September 25 marks the beginning of their final homestand.

It would be his first major league game since May 2016. However, both Wright and Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon refrained from using the word "retirement" when discussing the end of his playing career Thursday.

"The way I feel right now and from everything that the doctors have told me, there's not gonna be any improvement", he said.

Wright is under contract through the 2020 season - set to earn $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020, during what is the final year of the eight-year, $138 million deal he signed prior to the 2013 season.

Wright began a minor league rehab assignment with high Class-A St. Lucie on August 12 and was promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas on August 28. "So yeah, I don't see [playing beyond September] as a possibility". In the interim, he has had multiple surgeries to address problems with his neck, back and shoulder.

"It's debilitating to play baseball", Wright admitted.
