Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler has injury setback |

Put the trade talks on hold.

Roughly a month shy of Zack Wheeler’s scheduled return from Tommy John surgery, the Mets have temporarily shut the right-hander down due to right elbow discomfort. Wheeler is scheduled to fly to New York for an examination on Wednesday by Mets doctors.

Wheeler, 26, had been scheduled to throw a simulated inning this week in Port St. Lucie, Fla., marking his first competitive action since he underwent surgery in March 2015. Though the Mets do not consider this latest issue serious, Wheeler experienced enough elbow discomfort for the team to shut him down and fly him to New York.
“All I can say is he’s had a little bit of elbow discomfort,” general manager Sandy Alderson said. “He hasn’t thrown in a couple of days.”
