Mets' Zack Wheeler: Shut down until spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the season and is not scheduled to pick up a baseball again until he is gearing up for spring training, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

His latest setback was diagnosed as a flexor muscle strain, and he has yet to return after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March of 2015. The fact that he won't be able to do any throwing before pitchers and catchers report suggests that he may not be ready to join the big league rotation when the 2017 season starts. He still needs to be rostered in deep dynasty leagues, but his inability to recover from his Tommy John surgery in what is considered a normal amount of time has to be concerning.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Examination reveals flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) was diagnosed with a mild flexor strain, Maria Guardado of NJ Advance Media reports.

Wheeler's examination revealed that he hadn't suffered any ligament damage, but further time off is necessary. Moving forward, Wheeler will rest for two weeks before resuming workouts, at which point the Mets will figure out the appropriate way to proceed. New York isn't ruling out a return during the 2016 campaign, but Wheeler's rehab struggles indicate that they'll want to be careful with the 26-year-old.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Goes one inning in first rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) tossed 17 pitches in his lone inning of during a rehab game Saturday with High-A St. Lucie. He surrendered one walk and an unearned run.

Wheeler, who was making his first appearance in a game since March 2015, was originally scheduled to work two innings, but a rain delay ended up nixing those plans. It was an encouraging outing nonetheless for the right-hander, whose fastball sat between 90 and 96 miles per hour during the game, according to ESPN.com's Adam Rubin. The Mets are hoping to have Wheeler back by September, but he could face strict innings limits as the team gears up for a potential postseason run.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: To begin rehab assignment Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler (elbow) is scheduled to throw two innings or 35 pitches in a rehab outing Saturday at High-A St. Lucie, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

Saturday will mark Wheeler's first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery in the spring of 2015. He'll be capped at 35 pitches, so this will likely be the first of several rehab outings for Wheeler as he ups his workload. According to Rubin, the Mets will have up to thirty days to activate wheeler from the disabled list after he begins the rehab assignment, so Wheeler could conceivably be back with the big league club by early September.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Will begin rehab assignment Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Wheeler threw a successful simulated game on Monday, putting him in position to make his first rehab start. This will be his first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2015. It's likely that Wheeler, barring any setbacks, will return to the Mets at some point in late August or early September.
