If the Washington Nationals hope to run down the Braves in the National League East, this weekend’s four-game series at Atlanta’s SunTrust Park might be a good time to get started. The series between the division-leading Braves and the second-place Nationals is only the third time the clubs have met this year. The Braves won two of three when the clubs met most recently, June 21-23, in Washington.

The latest example of this came Wednesday when the team traded righty starter/reliever Wilmer Font –who had been designated for assignment earlier this month – to the Blue Jays for cash considerations. Font produced a 4.94 ERA with the Mets spanning 15 games, and is hardly irreplaceable. However, to acquire Font, the Mets sent hard-throwing prospect Neraldo Catalina to the Rays in May.

You’re going to hear about it and see certain teams and that stuff. My goal is to go out there every fifth day and grab the ball and pitch the best I can. Those rumors had intensified recently with the trade deadline just two weeks away, but Wheeler’s status as a top trade target have taken a hit with the righty landing on the injured list with a right shoulder impingement.
