Yankees, NL East Teams Showing Interest in Wheeler, Who Will Likely Remain a Met

According to Jon Heyman of FanCred on Twitter, the Mets are getting hits on Zack Wheeler, most recently from the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees as well as the Milwaukee Brewers.

However, Heyman adds that at this point, it seems as though the right-hander will remain in Queens.

It has been reported that the Mets have been talking Wheeler with other teams, but have a hefty asking price, as the Georgia native has blossomed into one of the better pitchers in the league.

On Sunday, the 28-year-old fired six scoreless innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates and drove in the only run in a 1-0 Mets victory.

Overall on the campaign, Wheeler has been worth 2.0 bWAR while pitching to a 5-6 record and a 4.11 ERA (3.57 FIP).
