Jeremy Hefner was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his elbow. He won’t require surgery, and the Mets are optimistic he can pitch for them again before the end of the season. Hefner was optioned to the minors Sunday, but that transaction was negated by the DL move. In 24 appearances (23 starts) this season, Hefner is 4-8 with a 4.34 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in 130 2/3 innings.
Wilmer Flores was out of the lineup again Wednesday due to a sprained right ankle he sustained in Monday’s loss to the Dodgers. He made a pinch-hit appearance in the ninth inning and singled to center. The 22-year-old rookie is listed as day-to-day.
Zack Wheeler takes a 5-2 record
