When it comes to injuries, will the New York Mets ever learn? Zack Wheeler has been shut down for the season after complaining of shoulder stiffness last weekend in Philadelphia.
However, Wheeler was examined only by an on-call doctor at the park in Philly, and as of now hasn’t been examined by Mets’ doctors. So far, no MRI.
After what happened with Matt Harvey, who...
If you are statistically inclined, and check FanGraphs religiously, you would know that they rolled out some new features on the site a couple of days ago. They added new statistics called “offense” and “defense,” which try to answer the questions like: Who is the best offensive player in the game? Or: Who is the best defensive player in the game?

This week in Mets baseball: not too shabby! Barely scraping out a win with 4 runs in the 9th, the Mets avoided what would have been a sweep against San Francisco to start the week.

Zack Wheeler experienced stiffness in his pitching shoulder during his last start, so Mets officials have decided to shut down the rookie for the season, according to Adam Rubin.
Terry Collins said the Mets do not believe there is anything medically wrong with Wheeler. They simply believe the stiffness cropped up because he is roughly 20 innings over his 2012 total.
After last night’s 3-2 loss to the Reds, the Mets remain in a four-way tie for the eighth worst record. The teams with the 10 worst records get their first round picks protected in the 2014 Draft. If it comes down to a tie breaker to determine the ten worst teams, the higher draft pick goes to the team that finished with a lower winning percentage in the previous season.
The Mets announced on Sunday that they were shutting down rookie pitcher Zack Wheeler for the rest of the season with stiffness…

Harvey is trying rehab and a throwing program over the next six to eight weeks in the hope a surgical procedure which would cost him all of 2014 will not be necessary.
Major leaguers frequently rehab with minor league teams during the...

Prior to his start on May 30 against the Yankees, Dillon Gee was on the verge of losing his place in the starting rotation. The Texas native was 2-6 with a 6.34 ERA and was hearing Zack Wheeler’s footsteps as the über-prospect was just weeks away from being called up for his first taste of big league action.
