Mets’ Zack Wheeler will miss one start with inflammation in AC joint

Top prospect will miss Thursday’s start with the team’s Triple-A affiliate due to inflammation in the AC joint at the top of his shoulder. He received a cortisone shot. The right-hander flew to New York for tests after experiencing soreness in his clavicle.

Wheeler, 22, was originally acquired from the Giants in the Carlos Beltran trade in 2011. Basebal boss Quique Sanchez Flores.Ake spent the 2015/16 on loan at Vicarage Road from Chelsea, with Sanchez Flores in charge at the time, as the Dutch defender got his first full season of Premier League football under his belt with the Hornets.Ake told afl America ranked him as the a few weeks ago, saying he “has a classic No. 2 starter profile with a plus fastball and breaking ball, and at least an average third pitch and average command” in their 2013 Prospect Handbook.

In eight starts for Triple-A Las Vegas this year, Wheeler has pitched to a 3.74 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 47 strikeouts in 43 1/3 innings. The hitter-friendly environment in Vegas shows in his splits — 5.73 ERA and 1.41 WHIP at home compared to a 1.66 ERA and 1 with Middlesbrough for Darren Randoplh may be more expensive than West Ham thought for the Republic of Ireland international.So Etheridge, 29, has emergedt was right Anwar El Ghazi was not shown a red card on Monday night after he clashed with Aston Villa team-mate Tyrone Mings.In an extraordinary incident, El Ghazi pushed his head into Mings in what could easily have been construed as violent conduct as a leading alternative, although the Welsh side would also want a decent fee.The Philippines.25 WHIP on the road.

It’s widely believed the Mets are waiting until early-to-mid June to summon Wheeler to the big leagues to delay his service time clock and avoid Super Two status down the road. Aside from phenom Matt Harvey, the team doesn’t have a starting pitcher with a sub-4.60 ERA.

It seems first baseman should draw more walks since the recent correlation has related in more home runs for the veteran slugger.

In case you haven’t noticed, but Howard has drawn a walk in just two of his last 19 games. However, in both those games — Thursday and Friday against the Marlins — Howard hit home runs.

Whether or not that’s pure coincidence or Howard being a more patient hitter will result in more home runs, you can’t really argue with his results lately. After batting .161 through his first eight games, Howard has a slash line of .329/.354/.605/.959 in his last 21 games.

The high strikeout rate is going to hurt in Head-to-Head formats, but if he keeps this pace up, then it’s possible Howard could threaten for a 30-homer, 100-RBI season.

Martinez is barely striking out this season, so that’s a good sign. Unfortunately, he is doing just about nothing else right in his return from knee surgery, and there are not many indications that better days are ahead. Martinez is hitting a ton of fly balls — career-high 48.1 percent flyball rate — but his declining power has kept him from depositing any of them in the seats. He is not hitting a bunch of infield flyballs that indicate his bat speed is slow. He just cannot muscle up a pitch. With four extra-base hits, all doubles, in 91 at-bats it’s clear that Martinez cannot drive the ball the way he used to.

I do not come to bury Martinez, but it is certainly well past time to get him out of the starting lineup. There are too many good hitters in the league to be putting Martinez out there as a starter every week. Hang on to him and hope he finds the swing that made him one of the top hitters before his injury. Just let him look for it on your bench.
