Zack Wheeler resumes throwing today

CHICAGO -- Zack Wheeler has rejoined Triple-A Las Vegas and is due to resume throwing

lastname Wheeler today. Wheeler received a cortisone shot Wednesday in New York for inflammation in the AC joint in his right shoulder.

The top prospect is only expected to miss one turn in the Pacific Coast League team's rotation.

Wheeler, in his third straight strong start, had limited Albuquerque to two runs in 7 1/3 innings last Saturday. He has a 1.35 ERA over his past three starts.
