Wheeler pulled from next AAA start

Postby thefounteeners » Tue May 14, 2013 3:31 pm

According to twitter sources Zack Wheeler will miss at least one start in AAA because of a sore clavicle for which he is visiting a doctor in NYC.

I am calling BS here. This feels like super two posturing to me. My gut tells me in the next day or so he will be cleared to pitch and will stay in NY to make his MLB debut. Very odd to fly a player from Vegas to NY to check on a minor medical issue.

i read this too today and also found it a bit odd. but i can see their reasoning for not promoting him yet with the whole arbitration deal

Yeah, worth remembering the financial trouble the Mets are in. The owner, Wilpon, took a bath from the Madoff Ponzi scheme. IIRC, after that he started looking around for purchasers of a minority share of the team.

So yeah, it wouldn't be surprising to learn the financial issues may be driving Wheeler's status.

Zack Wheeler (P) NY-N - May 15
http://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.htm?id=10951

Wheeler (shoulder) will resume throwing in a few days, ESPN.com's Adam Rubin reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Wheeler was checked by team doctors Wednesday after being scratched from his scheduled start the night before, but he was diagnosed with only minor inflammation. Still, as the team's top prospect, the Mets will give him a couple days to rest before letting him throw again.
