Derek Jeter, the Yankees’ captain, had kind words to say about David Wright, who was named Mets captain on Thursday.

“I’m happy for him,” Jeter said Friday. “I played with David in the WBC and I’ve gotten to know him throughout the years playing against him. He’s represented that organization as well as anyone. He deserves it.”
