    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.

    Impact

    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 on July 1 against the Phillies.

    Wheeler was placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday with right biceps tendinitis.

    Impact

    Wheeler has been roughed up for 15 runs and has served up five homers in just 3 2/3 innings in dropping his last two starts. He's 3-5 with a 5.29 ERA in 13 outings overall.

    News

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

    Impact

    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.

    Zack Wheeler fell to 3-5, allowing seven runs on eight hits in 2.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-6 on Monday. Wheeler struck out two, ending the game with a 5.29 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.

    Impact

    Wheeler has been roughed up for 15 runs and has served up five homers in just 3.2 innings in his last two starts. He next takes the ball Saturday at San Francisco.

    News

    Wheeler (3-5) was scorched for seven runs on eight hits over just two innings in Monday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Impact

    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 outings have been a disaster, as he's coughed up 15 earned runs while failing to log more than two innings in either game. His 5.29 ERA has him trending in the wrong direction, but he has a good chance to right the ship in his next start Sunday against the scuffling Giants.
