Zach Wheeler in a battle for the fifth spot in the rotation
Zach Wheeler missed the 2015 and 2016 seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery and will be in a Spring Training battle with Robert Gsellman and Seth Lugo for the fifth spot in the Mets' rotation. Wheeler had surgery in March 2015, but has not made it back to the MLB since. He was 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA in 2014, striking out 187 batters in 185 1/3 innings.
Wheeler will face innings limits that could even send him to the bullpen, meaning that Lugo and Gsellman can still have value this season. Fantasy owners have to be pleased that Wheeler will be back on the field, as he looked like a safe bet to be part of the future for the Mets' already stellar rotation. It is smart to temper your expectations for Wheeler, but he has strikeout-plus per inning potential.
