Wheeler has made eight relief appearances in his professional career, all in 2010, his first minor league season. He’s not eager to find out how his arm will react to being used every other day in the bigs.
Wheeler needs to check himself here. A guy with three-plus years of service time, two Cheap International Soccer Jerseys of them spent on the DL, shouldn’t be making any proclamations or demands. He and the Mets have no idea when (or if) if his patched-up elbow will produce high-90s heat again. Working, say, multiple innings in relief every three to four days early (or late) in the season doesn’t seem unreasonable.
“I know at some point I will have to go to (do) the bullpen thing just because of the innings,’’ Wheeler said. “I hate innings limits, but I guess that is part of the game these days. You’ve got to do what they say. They’re the boss.’’
Le’Veon Bell is on the mend.
The Steelers running back underwent successful surgery on his groin Monday, and said he is already feeling better.
I appreciate everyone’s thoughts & prayers…surgery went really well, & groin already feels better than it did before! I’ll be stronger! ???
The NFL launched an investigation into why Pittsburgh omitted Bell’s injury from report, which remains open.
Clearly the organization expects Bell to return to tip-top shape — last month the Steelers placed the franchise tag on Bell for 2017, which will make him a cool $12.7 million if they don’t reach a long-term contract agreement by July 15.
