Mookie Wilson said there's no need to be hitting fly balls to Carlos Beltran pregame at Citi Field to get him familiar with the wall quirks.

"He's an experienced outfielder," Wilson said. "That's not an issue. I spoke with him and Angel [Pagan], and they're both familiar with what the outfield does."

Beltran should start in right field Friday and Saturday, then have Sunday's start off.
