Keep your fingers crossed for good new on Zack  Wheeler. Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped a game to Albuquerque, 8-5. Binghamton took down Akron, 7-3. St. Lucie one-hit Brevard County, 4-0. Savannah lost via walk-off, 4-3.  Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler‘s MRI is not worrying me as much as it should. Mitch detailed some concerns with the inverted W delivery that he employs yesterday and how it can weaken a shoulder – but I think I’m just hoping for the best here.

Zack Wheeler Flying To New York To Have MRI On Sore Clavicle

Thoughts From Mitch Petanick: I’m hoping for the best here, but preparing for the worst. What I am worried most about is the fact that Zack Wheeler pitches using a delivery called the “Inverted W,” which could put added stress on the anterior labrum ligament in the shoulder — it slowly loosens the ligament and can actually lead to tears. Some pitchers use this delivery...

Marc Craig of Newsday...

Prospect Profile: Zack Wheeler | SP | NYM

As a rule, we fantasy owners love to own prospects before our fellow owners.

Timeline To Contention: What Exactly Is The Strategy?

Six weeks into a season that stretches over six months may be a tad early to make pronouncements on expected outcomes for this year’s Mets squad, but the indicators of relative strengths and weaknesses have at least given a reasonable hint of what can be looked for going forward.
