Mets-Braves preview

ATLANTA -- When the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves finish their four-game series Sunday at Turner Field, they'll do it without a couple of their most highly prized prospects.

The Mets optioned outfielder Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas and the Braves optioned right-handed pitcher Aaron Blair to Triple-A Gwinnett. Each had been a regular contributor to the team, but both had suffered through a lack of success that threatened to strip away their confidence.

The starting pitchers for the final game of the four-game series features Atlanta right-hander Bud Norris (2-7, 4.69 ERA) against ageless New York right-hander Bartolo Colon (6-3, 3.00). New York has won two of the three games in this series.
