Mets demote Greg Burke for Wheeler

By Adam Rubin

CHICAGO -- The Mets have demoted Greg Burke to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear the roster spot for the return of Zack Wheeler.

Burke had joined the Mets on Friday in Philadelphia when Jonathon Niese landed on the disabled list. He made one appearance against the Phillies and was charged with an unearned run because of John Buck's throwing error on an attempted steal.
