• Zack Wheeler turned in his second straight strong outing with Triple-A Las Vegas, limiting Sacramento to three hits and a walk in six scoreless innings Sunday. Sandy Alderson has suggested Wheeler needs to turn in a string of positive starts before promotion consideration is made.
Bear this in mind: The Mets will need an extra starter during a June 17-20 series at Turner Field, which will now be a five-game series because of Saturday's postponement. That likely would come after the Super 2 deadline, meaning Wheeler would miss an extra year of arbitration eligibility.
It probably would be a sweet moment for him, too, since he grew up in Dallas, Ga., outside Atlanta. Of course, this is all speculation.
