Manager Terry Collins said Wheeler (biceps) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session and is not yet slotted back into the rotation, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the original hope was that Wheeler would only have to miss one start while on the DL, it's starting to look like he may need a little more time. If all goes well with his next bullpen, there may be a clearer idea of when he'll slot back into the big-league rotation.

Wheeler (biceps) threw a bullpen session Sunday, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier in the week, the Mets insinuated that Wheeler could only miss one start due to his presence on the 10-day disabled list. On Sunday, though, they were noncommittal about whether the right-hander would make his next start, which is scheduled for July 1 against the Phillies.

General manager Sandy Alderson said Wheeler (biceps) is only expected to miss one start while on the disabled list, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears Wheeler, who landed on the DL on Wednesday with biceps tendinitis, will be ready to rejoin the rotation when the minimum 10-day stint is up. Barring any setbacks, he would tentatively slot back into the rotation July 1 against the Phillies.

Wheeler was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday due to biceps tendinitis.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when exactly this injury was sustained, although it may go to partially explain why he's struggled so much in his past two starts. The move is retroactive to June 20, so he's eligible to return on June 30, although it's currently unclear if he'll need more than the minimum 10-day stint at this point. Tyler Pill and Erik Goeddel will come up from the minors to provide pitching reinforcements until he's back to full health.

Wheeler (3-5) was scorched for seven runs on eight hits Monday against the Dodgers, as he took the loss after just two innings pitched.

EDGE Analysis

With all the injury woes plaguing the Mets, a short, ineffective start was the last thing they needed. Wheeler had been one of the more consistent starters for New York, but his last two starts have been a disaster, with him failing to log more than two innings in either outing while coughing up 15 earned runs in that span. His 5.29 ERA has him trending in the wrong direction, but he'll look to right the ship in his next start Sunday against the scuffling Giants.

Wheeler (3-4) got only five outs while allowing eight runs on six hits and three walks in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Damage control had largely been the name of the game for Wheeler, but all his baserunners finally caught up with him in this one. The 27-year-old righty had allowed just 11 earned runs over his past 41 innings (2.41 ERA); however, his 1.49 WHIP in that span portended a blowup, and this was a big one. He'll try to shake it off when he takes the ball for his second start of the week Sunday against the Nationals.

Wheeler allowed the Rangers to score just a single run on six hits and three walks over seven innings Wednesday, striking out five in a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

He left with a lead, only to see Jerry Blevins blow it in the eighth inning before the Mets eked out a win in the ninth. While it hasn't always been pretty and efficient for Wheeler, he's managed to get the job done more often than not this year. Now 27 years old, Wheeler has only 60 MLB starts under his belt thanks to his 2014 Tommy John surgery, so there's still room for him to continue growing as a pitcher. The key will be cutting his walk rate, which remains too high at 3.73 BB/9.

Wheeler (3-3) allowed just two runs despite surrendering 10 hits and a walk over 6.1 innings during Thursday's loss to Milwaukee. He struck out six batters.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old righty has now allowed just 10 earned runs through 34 innings over his past six starts and sports a serviceable 3.72 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 8.3 K/9 for the campaign. It was also encouraging to see him issue just the single free pass Thursday, as his 3.7 BB/9 will need improvement if he's going to continue chipping away at his ratios. Wheeler lines up next for a tough road start against the Rangers.

Wheeler (finger) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Wheeler's last start was cut short by a blister on his throwing hand, but it appears the setback will not prevent him from taking the mound Thursday. Wheeler is coming off a quality month, one in which he went 2-0 with a 2.74 ERA over four starts.

Wheeler was forced to leave his start after the sixth inning with a blister on his right hand, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wheeler had put together a solid performance before his premature departure, allowing just three runs on seven hits and recording five strikeouts. The young right-hander has established himself as a consistent arm in an injury-riddled Mets' rotation this season and, fortunately, this doesn't appear to be anything too serious. Consider him day-to-day as he aims for his next scheduled start, Thursday against the Brewers.
