Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that all went well with Zack Wheeler's (elbow) first full-effort bullpen session. Collins indicated that the next step for Wheeler will be a live batting practice session which should come early in the week. [...]
For the second time since elbow tenderness created a snag in his throwing program, Zack Wheeler climbed atop a mound Wednesday for a bullpen session, the highlight of a rain-shortened day at Mets camp. Manager Terry Collins called it "a real big step forward for him," noting that Wheeler mixed breaking balls into his repertoire for the first time in over a week.
Zack Wheeler is a tremendous -- but fragile -- talent. The Mets have talked about moving him to the bullpen, but his elbow may not be able to handle the inconsistencies of relief work.
