Mets' Zack Wheeler: Still in rotation battle despite rough outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler allowed four runs on four hits -- including two home runs -- and three walks Wednesday but remains in the discussion for a rotation spot, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Wheeler hit 97 mph and threw 65 pitches Wednesday, and he's scheduled to start Monday's Grapefruit League contest.

The right-hander coughed up the pair of dingers in the eighth inning, possibly showing fatigue with the volume of work. Wheeler may have to dazzle in his Monday outing to overtake Robert Gsellman and Seth Lugo in this battle. If he falters, a bullpen job or a trip to extended spring training may be in his future, though Wheeler has enough under his belt to earn consideration sometime this season even if his major league return is delayed.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Still vying for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler's position to start the regular season has yet to be determined after he touched the upper-90s in his Cactus League appearance Thursday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

The right-hander was initially expected to begin the season at extended spring training, but Wheeler's showing on Thursday opened the eyes of the Mets brass. New York certainly isn't short on rotation candidates this spring, but Wheeler certainly remains in the conversation for a spot. Things should sort out as the end of the spring nears.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Fires two innings in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) threw two innings in his first Grapefruit League start, walking a batter, striking out another, and serving up a home run.

The oft-injured 26-year-old appeared to come out of Friday's appearance healthy, which is definitely the best sign for fantasy owners and the Mets brass alike. The homer he served up to Matt Tuiasosopo was less than desirable, but he did a decent job of keeping the ball down outside of that, as three of the six outs he forced were groundouts. Wheeler will still be brought along slowly and faces an innings cap this season, but could be ready to re-join the Mets' rotation a month or two into the campaign.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Will get first Grapefruit League start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) will get the start Friday in a split-squad game against the Braves, his first Grapefruit League action of the spring, The New York Daily News reports.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen thinks Wheeler's hurdles are more mental than physical at this point, as he completes his long recovery from Tommy John surgery in 2015. "Once you get through it and it feels OK and you come out of it, then you can breathe a little bit and get going," Warthen said Thursday. "It's a matter of him getting out there and pitching and getting going. It's a matter of him knowing it's OK. We know it's OK, the doctors say it's OK, but until you go out and experience it, it's hard to know." The right-hander will be on a strict innings cap this season after his long layoff and may not be on the Opening Day 25-man roster, but a successful outing Friday will help the club determine how they want to proceed with Wheeler.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Not expected to break camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler is expected to start the 2017 season in extended spring training Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

He's set to lose the No. 5 rotation spot to Robert Gsellman out of the gate. Wheeler's recovery from 2015 Tommy John surgery drags on, and prospective fantasy owners can't expect him to return to full strength until sometime this summer. Of course, that shouldn't completely remove him from the fantasy scene, but any fantasy player in a deep mixed league who wants to stash him must remain patient.
