Nori Aoki not in Mets' Friday lineup

New York Mets outfielder Nori Aoki is on the bench ahead of Friday's matchup with the Atlanta Braves.

What It Means:

Aoki got the start last time out, but the Mets face a lefty tonight, leaving Travis Taijeron to start in right and hit seventh for New York.

Off an 0-for-3 game, our models have Aoki down for 9 hits (2 doubles) and 3 RBI in 37 plate appearances the rest of the way.
