Law: Wheeler 15th-ranked prospect in MLB
By Adam Rubin
Keith Law's newest list of the top 25 prospects in baseball has right-hander Zack Wheeler checking in at No. 15.
St. Louis Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras headlines the list.
Wheeler should be in the majors in mid-June. He has made two starts since returning from a visit to New York to receive a cortisone injection in his right shoulder.
On Monday with Triple-A Las Vegas, Wheeler allowed five runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out four in four innings. He surrendered a pair of two-run homers in an 80-pitch outing. Overall, he is 3-1 with a 4.13 ERA in 10 starts with the 51s.
