The Braves will send top prospect Kyle Wright, who tossed two quality innings before losing command and control in his previous start. The Mets will counter with David Peterson, who is filling in for the injured Marcus Stroman but survived to a tough debut at Fenway Park. The Braves are a tougher test, though.
