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.

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.

As an active reader of what is probably way too many Mets blogs, message boards, ESPN Insider articles, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a feeling that the Mets should considering dangling Zack Wheeler in a trade for a premium bat. The biggest name being thrown around right now is Starlin Castro, mainly because the Cubs suddenly became loaded at SS with the addition of Addison...
