Without throwing an inning for Buffalo the question on fans mind is if Wheeler will see Queens by the end of the season. According to GM Sandy Alderson, that isn’t likely.
Sandy Alderson said “unlikely” Zack Wheeler pitches in majors. Innings-limit 150 or so. Harvey innings limit about 165-170.

We will just have to see what happens. I know earlier in the year the team said it was unlikely Matt Harvey would move beyond Buffalo this season and look at how that situation has turned out. Things are a little different with Wheeler, however, as his innings total continues to rise and the team would obviously be prudent not to go beyond their predetermined limit. I’m sure most fans are excited enough about the promotion to Triple-A, as is Wheeler, who is indeed “one step closer.”
Zack Wheeler before the game on the promotion: ““It’s an honor. It’s one step closer.” #BMets #Mets
