Preview: Game 83

TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 7:10 PM

Preview:

The Atlanta Braves (44-38) moved a half-game in front of Washington in the division with its sixth win in seven games Sunday, 3-2 in Philadelphia. Powered by a four-game sweep of the Phillies, the Braves claimed sole possession of first place for the first time since June 20.

The club is on the verge of matching a season-high, five-game win streak, set April 11-16, but has lost eight of 10 at home.

The Mets have dropped four of five after winning five of six.

New York (37-45) went 2 for 15 with runners in scoring position and left 11 men on base in Sunday's 5-2 loss at Pittsburgh -- the third time in four games it plated two runs.

Wright missed his third straight game because of a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated Monday, and manager Terry Collins was optimistic that his star third baseman, who is 11 for 22 in his last five games against Atlanta, could avoid the disabled list.

Braves catcher Evan Gattis is also expected to be re-evaluated after missing three straight games with back spasms.

Teammate Alex Wood (6-6, 3.07 ERA) will try to for another stellar performance in his second start since returning from the minors. In his first major league start since May 4 and first appearance since June 8, the left-hander yielded three hits and a walk in seven innings of Wednesday's 4-0 win in Houston.

Wood went 0-1 with a 4.05 ERA in three starts against the Mets in 2013.

He'll pitch opposite Zack Wheeler (3-8, 4.45), who had a miserable outing his last time out following a dominating performance.

The right-hander was tagged for six runs and six hits in two innings in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to Oakland. He recorded his first shutout -- a three-hitter -- in a 1-0 win in Miami six days earlier.

Wheeler is 0-1 with a 5.73 ERA in two starts against Atlanta this season, the most recent April 20, after going 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA in three matchups in 2013.

Jason Heyward has contributed to some of that trouble this year, going 5 for 6 with a home run. The outfielder, though, is 0 for 14 in his last six games and 1 for 24 in his past nine.

The Mets' Daniel Murphy, batting .341 in his last 10 games, is 4 for 8 against Wood.

Mets News and Notes: Malholm out - Wood In, Turner up - Burke Down, d'Arnaud to play minor league games, Lagares NL Player of the Week


Mets News and Notes:
NL Player of the Week


Atlanta Braves LHP Paul Maholm has been placed on the disabled list with a bruised left wrist and will not face the Mets on Thursday. Rookie southpaw Alex Wood (0-2, 2.45 ERA) instead will start the finale to the four-game series.

Reliever Greg Burke has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear the roster spot for Justin Turner's activation from the disabled list.

Burke was selected for the demotion over rookie Gonzalez Germen, who has allowed only one hit and three walks while striking out six in 3 2/3 innings spanning four appearances. Germen twice has inherited bases-loaded situations and wriggled free.

Burke had allowed a combined six runs over his past two appearances.

Travis d'Arnaud has been cleared to begin playing in minor league games later this week, a team source told ESPNNewYork.com.

D'Arnaud received the go-ahead during a Monday exam in New York. He will run the bases Tuesday and Wednesday, then is scheduled to play in his first minor league game Thursday since suffering a broken left foot.

D'Arnaud, the organization's top catching prospect, suffered a fractured first metatarsal while catching with Triple-A Las Vegas on April 17.

He initially is expected to play in minor league games in Port St. Lucie before returning to the Pacific Coast League. D'Arnaud is projected to be a September call-up.
