Description: Mets third baseman David Wright is a career .524 hitter (11-for-21) with a 1.434 OPS against Braves starter Aaron Harang.
Insight: Wright is off to a slow start, batting just .238 with a .701 OPS, but this extremely favorable matchup could get him going. Daniel Murphy, Wright and Ruben Tejada all have good matchups against Harang which should mean plenty of scoring opportunities.

Description: Mets third baseman David Wright hit a 10th-inning two-run homer during Monday's season opener against Washington.
Insight: Wright finished with three hits, two runs and two RBI in five at-bats.

The Mets added Curtis Granderson to protect Wright this offseason.

Description: Mets third baseman David Wright (hamstring) will start his rehab assignment this weekend, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: He'll play with Port St. Lucie, whose season ends Sunday. After that, Wright will have to settle for simulated games until his hamstring feels good enough to play. The third baseman left open the chance that he won't return at all this season. "You don't want to go into the offseason with the uncertainty of an injury," he said. "And most importantly, I don't want this to affect me next year or the years to come. So I have to rehab this properly, be diligent with it, stay on top of it. And be honest with the rehab guys and the medical guys down in Florida, as I continue to make progress. But all signs are good. I haven't had a single setback yet."
