The New York Mets, much like most of the team in the Majors, have been hit by injuries.  Those injuries may have forced their hand in some places, but not when it comes to their top prospect.  Perhaps this is more a result of the injuries Zack Wheeler has suffered himself rather than a desire to bring him up slowly, but the Mets have shown remarkable patience with Wheeler.  Now, the wait is all but over. According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the Mets are targeting June 18th for Wheeler's debut.  This is a moment Mets fans have been waiting for since the team traded Carlos Beltran to San Francisco in exchange for the highly-touted Wheeler.  And Wheeler has proven himself in the minors.  He will finally get his chance to prove himself in the Majors next week. Wheeler suffered through a couple injuries this spring, and he had a collar bone scare earlier this season, but overall he has remained healthy.  There have been no significant medical issues for the 23-year old righty.  The 11th best prospect in baseball prior to the start of this season, Wheeler has done nothing but impress. Blogging for Susie In his minor league career, spanning four seasons and 80 games, Wheeler has a 28-19 record.  He also has a 3.59 ERA.  Wheeler has started 72 of those 80 games in the minors.  So far this season, Wheeler decent, but not great.  He's 4-1 with a 4.14 ERA.  However, his mechanics and his stuff are fantastic.  The Mets believe he's been unlucky at Triple-A thus far.  Now, Wheeler will get to prove that's the case and will debut to much fanfare next week.
