PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) _ The New York Mets have made third baseman David Wright the fourth captain in team history.

The Mets made the announcement Thursday.

Wright joined Keith Hernandez, Gary Carter and John Franco as Mets to be appointed captain. Franco was the last player to hold the honor in 2004.

The 30-year-old Wright is a six-time All-Star and the team’s career hits leader. He signed an eight-year, $138 million contract extension with the Mets in the offseason.
