    • Mets' Zack Wheeler: Throwing bullpen sessions
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wheeler (elbow) has begun throwing bullpen sessions, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Wheeler's timetable for return is not yet firm, but this progress, barring any setbacks, may be a signal that a rehab assignment may be in his near future. The pitcher is still recovering from Tommy John surgery, which he had in March of 2015.

    • Wheeler is at least a month away from joining the Mets and could remain sidelined even longer due to slight setbacks in his recovery, GM Sandy Alderson said Thursday. Wheeler is throwing again from 90 feet and should start slope work again this week. But that is a step back from where he was a few weeks ago, when it looked like he would be able to rejoin the team in July. Once Wheeler progresses to slope work and bullpen sessions without setback, he would then be able to progress to kicking off the 30-day rehab assignment window. The possibility remains that Wheeler will not be back this year due to the continued pushback of return date.

    • Mets' Zack Wheeler: Throws on flat ground
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wheeler resumed throwing activities Monday, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports. Wheeler was able to throw 90 feet on flat ground during his workout on Monday. This is very much a relief, as Wheeler had recently been experiencing elbow discomfort. However, said discomfort was diagnosed as nerve irritation, which shouldn't be a major setback as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. The Mets are in no rush to bring Wheeler back into their rotation and are expecting him to return sometime in August.

    • Mets' Zack Wheeler: Set for long toss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wheeler (elbow) is scheduled for long toss Monday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. Wheeler has yet to throw since his recent setback, but following a recent cortisone injection, the young right-hander was permitted for baseball activity as tolerated. It looks like the Mets will start slow, with the hope that Wheeler is able to begin throwing off a mound in short order. Regardless of the outcome, it's looking more and more like a post-All Star break return is in the cards for Wheeler, as the Mets surely won't be taking any chances by rushing him.

    • Wheeler (elbow) has been diagnosed with sensory nerve irritation but no structural damage in his right elbow. He received a cortisone injection and can resume activity as tolerated, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. This diagnosis has to be viewed as good news, as there was some speculation that this setback could sideline Wheeler long-term. It's unclear when he will be able to resume his return from Tommy John surgery, putting the All-Star break timeframe in severe doubt.
