Player Notes
Zack Wheeler underwent successful Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Wednesday.

Advice: Wheeler also had his flexor pronator tendon repaired. He'll miss the entire 2015 season and will likely still be in rehab mode through the first couple of months next season. Dillon Gee is expected to replace him in the Mets' rotation.

Zack Wheeler will undergo Tommy John surgery on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Advice: The operation will be performed by Dr. David Altchek. Wheeler is also dealing with a torn tendon in his elbow that will need to be prepared and the right-hander expects to be sidelined until sometime in June next season. Dillon Gee is replacing Wheeler in the Mets' 2015 rotation.

According to Marc Carig of Newsday, Zack Wheeler also has a torn tendon in his right elbow.

Advice: It's what prompted the Mets to give him platelet-rich plasma treatment over the offseason. The hope was that Wheeler would be able to pitch through it with rest and rehab, but everything obviously changed when the right-hander tore his ulnar collateral ligament this spring. He is expected to undergo season-ending Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Zack Wheeler (elbow) saw Dr. David Altchek on Wednesday.

Advice: The MRI of Wheeler's elbow will now be reviewed by Dr. James Andrews. It's seemingly inevitable that he will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery, but all involved are doing their due diligence with the situation. Dillon Gee is expected to replace Wheeler in the Mets' starting rotation to begin the season.
