Mets SP Zack Wheeler undergoes Tommy John surgery
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Mets announced that pitcher Zack Wheeler underwent surgery for ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction. Wheeler's flexor pronator tendon was also operated on by Dr. David Altchek Wednesday, according to Newsday.

Wheeler was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament after he was scratched from a March 14 Grapefruit League game. A report also surfaced that he pitched with a torn tendon the previous season. He went 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA in 32 starts last season.

The 24-year-old right-hander will soon be placed on the 60-day disabled list before the start of the season, and is projected to have a recovery time of approximately 14 months.

"He is expected to make a full recovery," the club said in a statement, per ESPN.

Mets SP Zack Wheeler scheduled for Tommy John surgery
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

After meeting with doctors earlier in the week, Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler has officially opted for Tommy John surgery.

The 24-year-old right-hander is scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday or Wednesday, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN. Dr. David Altchek will perform the surgery, per the report. He will be the 10th pitcher in New York's organization to undergo Tommy John surgery since 2013.

"[When] they told me on the phone, I came out here and everybody was sort of staring at me," Wheeler said, per NJ.com. "And I was like, 'Torn UCL'. And they all just sort of came up to me. I cried a little bit. They're all really supportive. Bunch of really good guys in here."

Wheeler was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament after he was scratched from a March 14 Grapefruit League game. A report also surfaced that he pitched with a torn tendon the previous season.

"Honestly, I've had pain in that spot in my elbow since I got drafted, since before I got drafted," Wheeler said, per Newsday.

Wheeler went 11-11, with a 3.54 ERA in 32 starts for the Mets last year. He has a lifetime 3.50 ERA through 49 starts (285 1/3 innings). He is expected to be fully recovered in time for the 2016 season. Dillon Gee and Rafael Montero will compete for the the club's final rotation spot.

"They're going to go in and basically clean up everything," Wheeler said, per Newsday. "So, I'm going to have a new elbow when I come out."

Wheeler had been cleared to continue pitching last season despite chronic pain caused by what the team called inflammation of the tendon. However, a source said the tendon was "a little bit torn," per the report.

Wheeler has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. He was scheduled to meet with the team doctor Wednesday to determine whether to undergo Tommy John surgery to repair the elbow.

Mets SP Zack Wheeler not ready to talk about elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler, who learned Monday he has a torn UCL in his right elbow, declined to take questions Tuesday morning as he awaits further evaluation, per ESPN.com.

Wheeler is scheduled to fly to New York on Tuesday evening and meet with Dr. David Altcheck, who is the team doctor, on Wednesday.

"I know you all have a lot of questions and stuff, but I'm not going to talk until I get Dr. Altchek's input," Wheeler said. "I'm going up there tonight and will see him tomorrow morning. Once I come back down, I'll talk to you all and give you all the information that you want. But, until then, I just want to make sure that I know everything first -- know all the right facts, instead of just throwing stuff out there."
