Harvey? Yes. Wheeler? No. For ML camp
By Andrew Marchand
The Mets have invited RHP Matt Harvey and CF Matt den Dekker, my colleague Adam Rubin informs. However, Zack Wheeler -- the young righty acquired in the Carlos Beltran deal -- was not invited.
Wheeler only finished the year in A-ball so he is not as polished. Plus, as one team outsider put it, the Mets would have to spend more on meal money and accommodations. Port St. Lucie can be quite pricey that time of year.
