Mets @ Braves
At Truist Park
LHP
1-1, 3.86 ERA, 11 SO

0-1, 7.50 ERA, 8 SO
Wright breezed through the first two innings of his season debut, then lost a feel for the baseball during what became an ugly third inning. The highly regarded prospect has a top-notch slider. His troubles have been a product of fastball command.
