Wheeler Likeliest Starter To Go, At Least Six Teams Interested

According to Jon Heyman of FanCred Sports, Zack Wheeler is the one to go if any Mets starter is traded. He reports that half a dozen teams have called the Mets expressing interest in the 28-year-old starter.

It had been previously reported that the Yankees have been in contact with the Mets about a possible cross-town swap headlined by Wheeler.

Wheeler, 28, is having a bounce-back year after missing much of the last three seasons for the Mets with a 3-6 record, 4.44 ERA, and a 1.34 WHIP.  He is also under contract through the 2019 season.

The right-hander has a career 24-29 record with a 4.02 ERA in four seasons since being called up after being acquired from the Giants in 2011 for Carlos Beltran.
