Adam Rubin has reported that Zack Wheeler is scheduled to start throwing again today, and is back with the team in Las Vegas.
Wheeler received a cortisone shot on Wednesday after being diagnosed with inflammation of the AC joint in his throwing shoulder. He is still expected to only miss one start, which would have been on Saturday of this week.

Zack Wheeler has been diagnosed with slight inflammation in the AC joint in his shoulder, and will miss one start, according to Assistant GM John Ricco.
Wheeler received a cortisone shot at the Hospital for Special Surgery in his right shoulder and is flying to rejoin his team at Triple-A Las Vegas.
We spoke to his agent a few minutes ago who said there is no structural damage and that he is in good spirits.
That said, until I see Wheeler back on the mound pitching again, I will remain concerned.
It’s just the Mets fan in me. :-)
Get back on that mound soon, Zack…
