Mets’ Zack Wheeler has the stuff for a Cy Young season

With his injury history, I can’t see the Mets locking him up without a highly discounted price tag.

The right-hander would be a terrific fit for the Braves — he lives outside Atlanta — so the Mets need to make sure they can keep Wheeler in their rotation for the long haul.

“I’m here right now, [and] that’s all I’m worried about,” Wheeler said about his upcoming free-agent status after participating in his first day of pre-camp, at one point throwing a bullpen session alongside deGrom and Syndergaard. “All that stuff will figure itself out, and I will worry about that later. You know it’s coming up and you want to have a good year, but at the same time, it’s about what’s now. I’m here with the Mets, and this is where I want to win, and that’s what’s happening right now.”
