No Way I’d Deal Zack Wheeler To The Yankees For Brett Gardner

Good morning, everyone. Here is something from John Harper of the Daily News, who believes that if the Yankees are truly serious about dealing Brett Gardner, that the Mets could be a pretty good trade partner for them as they seek to add a starting pitcher. Harper suggests that the Mets could send the Yankees rehabbing right-hander Zack Wheeler in return for Gardner.

Let’s not trade Zack Wheeler

Prior to last year, Zack Wheeler was thought of as an essential part of the Mets’ future. The hard-throwing, 4-pitch righty has as much #1 potential as the 2015 stalwarts who pitched us into the World Series. While Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz dominated on the mound and the back pages of our newspapers, Wheeler was out of sight, out of mind,...

Why Zack Wheeler going down is a blessing in disguise

Zack Wheeler has had a history of pain in his throwing elbow before and now has resulted in the need for Tommy John Surgery. The Mets knowledge of his elbow led him to be kept away from the trading block for the winter and see how well he could perform during spring training.

Zack Wheeler’s injury doesn’t sabotage the Mets’ season

In case you haven’t heard, New York Mets starter Zack Wheeler has a torn UCL in his elbow, and season-ending Tommy John surgery seems likely. The injury obviously sucks and is awful, but it isn’t on the level of other crushing injuries suffered this year, like Yu Darvish’s torn UCL or Marcus Stroman’s torn ACL.
