2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: ZACH WHEELER SET TO RETURN TO MOUND

Finally after two long years of rehab, former New York Mets top pitching prospect Zach Wheeler is set to make his exhibition debut on March 10th.  Wheeler of course has had a two year fight to come back from Tommy John elbow surgery and it has been an arduous journey to say the least as he suffered one setback after another.  Even at the start of spring training this year, Wheeler felt some discomfort in his elbow that has proven now to be a non-issue.  While Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman are ahead of Wheeler for the number 5 spot in the Mets rotation, it wouldn't be far fetched to think the hard-thrower will be back as a starter if he proves healthy.  An expected 125-inning cap makes Wheeler more of use in NL-only formats but while he is starting. he can sneak SP 5 value in deep leagues.
