Today, Sandy Alderson did a live chat on Mets.com taking questions from fans through Twitter.
I decided to give it a shot, so I asked Sandy if it was possible that Zack Wheeler could be called up to the team come the All-Star break? Much to my surprise, he answered, and as you’ll see in the video below, it was the first question he answered..
According to Alderson, it’s very possible that the Mets’ top pitching prospect will join the team by the All-Star break.
Alderson said that currently he has a solid 5-man rotation, but he assumes that everyone going into the season might not be healthy by the middle of the year. The Mets general manager said its feasible that Wheeler will be called up around the All-Star break.
Sounds like a logical response. Plus the addition of Shaun Marcum will certainly keep the team from rushing Wheeler to the majors.
