FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: MORE ELBOW WOES FOR ZACK WHEELER

The dark clouds are begining to circle around rehabbing New York Mets starter Zack Wheeler after he camae down with elbow soreness after a bullpen session earlier in the week.  Wheeler is now headed for an MRI on the elbow to rule out any structural issues such as the torn UCL he suffered a year ago that necessitated Tommy John surgery.  The hard-throwing righty was expected to rejoin the Mets at the end of July and replace Bartolo Colon in the rotation but now all bets are off until a diagnosis is made.  At the very least, Wheeler will likely be shut down for a bit if no structural problems are found which means we are now looking at an August return at the earliest.  This means Colon gets a longer rotation leash which he more than deserves given his terrific SP 5 pitching this season.  Stay tuned.
