Zack Wheeler checks out OK

10 Comments

Mets prospect Zack Wheeler who, along with Matt Harvey may be the only reasons to watch the Mets as the year goes on, was in New York to be checked out for some shoulder soreness today. Good news:

“All good,” Wheeler’s agent Al Goetz said via text message. “No structural damage.”

He’ll miss a start, likely as much due to having to travel from Las Vegas to New York to see the big club’s doctors than anything else, but looks OK.

After a rough start to his Triple-A season Wheeler has ripped off three straight good starts. If the patten continues he’ll be in Queens before too long, one has to guess.
