David Wright went 2-for-5 with two singles and a run scored in Friday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.
Wright missed four months with spinal stenosis, but has come back seemingly as though nothing had happened. In the four games he's played since his return from the disabled list, he's 6-for-20 with a home run, three RBI and six runs scored. There's fantasy value here, particularly with the Mets playing well on offense.
Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and two walks in Friday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.
One of d'Arnaud's two walks came with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. He's currently working on a six-game hitting streak which has helped to boost his overall batting line to .279/.355/.544 across 147 at-bats. In addition to those fine numbers, he's hit nine homers and driven in 30 runs.
Henry Owens slowed the Mets' recent offensive ways on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over five innings.
Owens kept the Met offense in check despite issuing four walks. After a Travis d'Arnaud RBI single in the fourth brought home the first run of the game for either team, an error by Rusney Castillo in the fifth allowed the second run on Owens' line to score. He wouldn't factor into the decision. The 23-year-old lefty surrendered seven runs to the Mariners two starts ago, but he's more than held his own beyond that stinker. Through five major league starts, he holds a 4.03 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. He'll face the Yankees at Fenway next time he toes the rubber.
David Ortiz was forced to leave Friday's game due to tightness in his left heel.
It didn't seem to effect him much on Friday as he clubbed his 27th home run of the season in a victory over the Mets. It's something to watch moving forward though as it could cause the slugger to rest for a day or two here and there. He's having another solid season offensively, slashing .263/.352/.507 with 77 RBI.
Matt Harvey turned in a strong performance in Friday's no-decision against the Red Sox, firing six innings of scoreless baseball.
Harvey struck out eight, walked one and allowed just two hits during his six innings on the mound. This should have been enough to earn him a victory, but Mets reliever Logan Verrett was knocked for three runs in the seventh and the Red Sox would ultimately win 6-4 in 10 innings. Tough outcome aside, Harvey's now allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last five starts while boasting a 2.48 ERA and 0.99 WHIP for the season. Given the way he's throwing the ball, his upcoming home outing against the Phillies should be a breeze.
