Mets' Zack Wheeler: Return this season not guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday but acknowledged the possibility he may not return this season, The Record's Matt Ehalt reports.

He still needs to progress to facing batters before he can begin a 30-day rehab assignment. Pitching coach Dan Warthen estimated that Wheeler would need to face hitters for about 10 days before heading out to a minor league affiliate. The rehab assignment may not last the full 30 days, but he will need to build up his arm strength to the point where he can give the Mets 80-plus pitches per outing. With all of these variables, it seems unlikely Wheeler will be able to return before sometime in September, and it remains possible he does not return at all this season.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Throwing bullpen sessions
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler (elbow) has begun throwing bullpen sessions, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

Wheeler's timetable for return is not yet firm, but this progress may be a signal that a rehab assignment is in his near future. The pitcher is still recovering from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in March of 2015.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Not close to rejoining the Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler (elbow) resumed throwing Monday, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

Wheeler was able to throw from 90 feet on flat ground. This is very much a relief, as Wheeler had recently been experiencing elbow discomfort. However, that 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 | RotoWire

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.
