Mets' Zack Wheeler: Completes another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday at about 85-to-90 percent effort, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Wheeler threw a little harder than he did in his previous bullpen session Sunday, a sign that he's continuing to make strides in the recovery process from March 2015 Tommy John surgery. The Mets still seem content to proceed slowly with Wheeler throughout the spring, but the right-hander hasn't been ruled out for Opening Day.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Arm feels fine Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler reported no issues with his arm a day after Sunday's bullpen session, The New York Daily News reports.

He threw 21 pitches at about 75 percent Sunday, which isn't exactly a thorough test, but Wheeler said he felt good heading into Monday morning's team workout. His next bullpen session is scheduled for Wednesday, but don't expect the Mets to dramatically increase his workload as he works his way back from a two-year absence.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Successful bullpen session Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler threw a bullpen session on Sunday and experienced no issues, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

Wheeler experienced tenderness in his elbow after his bullpen session last week, so the fact that he felt fine after today's session is a definite step in the right direction. His status for Opening Day is still very much in question, but it does appear that the young righty is making progress.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Will get back on mound Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheeler (elbow) is next scheduled for a bullpen session Sunday, the New York Daily News reports.

He had some reported "tenderness" in his elbow after Tuesday's bullpen, which caused his next session to be pushed back. Expect the Mets to continue being cautious with Wheeler this spring as he attempts to make his way back from a two-year absence following Tommy John surgery in March 2015.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Could begin season in extended spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) is not guaranteed a spot on the Mets' Opening Day roster, The New York Daily News reports.

The team is discussing a few different approaches to handling Wheeler, who'll be on a fairly strict innings limit this season after not pitching in the majors since 2014. He could begin the campaign as the Mets' fifth starter, getting his turn skipped frequently and being held to a pitch count early in the year that would keep him from throwing more than five innings in a start, but that plan would put additional strain on the bullpen -- although with Robert Gsellman and Seth Lugo on hand to pick up the slack, it seems viable. The other main option would be to leave Wheeler behind when the team breaks camp, let Gsellman or Lugo be the fifth starter, and then bring Wheeler up in June or so to take the job without any restrictions. Either way, it seems unlikely the 26-year-old will make a big fantasy impact this season, making him more appealing in keeper and dynasty formats than re-draft leagues.
