Wright's stats projected to slide in 2014

By Adam Rubin

Dan Szymborski’s ZiPS projections are not kind to Mets captain David Wright.

The projection for Wright, who turned 31 and was married last month: a .276 batting average with 19 homers, 74 RBIs and 17 steals.

The offensive stats projections are not particularly kind to the Mets overall. Curtis Granderson is projected to lead the Mets with 20 homers while producing only 54 RBIs and batting .237. Chris Young is projected to have a .232 average, 16 homers and 54 RBIs.

The highest projected batting average on the Mets belongs to Daniel Murphy at .282. Travis d'Arnaud is predicted to hit .245 with nine homers and 39 RBIs.

On the mound, the projected ERAs are Zack Wheeler 3.62, Bartolo Colon 3.60, Jonathon Niese 3.79, Dillon Gee 4.09 and Jenrry Mejia 4.22. Prospect Noah Syndergaard is projected to post a 3.62 ERA.
