NEW YORK (AP) -- David Wright is expected to return to the New York Mets' lineup Friday night in Philadelphia after missing seven weeks with a strained right hamstring.

Mets manager Terry Collins says the third baseman went through back-to-back workouts the past two days ''with pretty good intensity.''

Wright, a seven-time All-Star and the team captain, has a .391 on-base percentage with 16 homers, 54 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.

Going into Thursday's game against San Francisco, the depleted Mets were 19-25 since Wright went on the disabled list Aug. 3.

In other news, minor league infielder Wilfredo Tovar will join the Mets in Philadelphia to replace shortstop Ruben Tejada, who broke his right leg in Wednesday night's game.
