Zack Wheeler out of surgery

TAMPA, Fla. -- Zack Wheeler underwent Tommy John surgery on Wednesday morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. The team described the surgery, which was performed by team doctor David Altchek, as "successful."

Altchek reconstructed Wheeler's fully torn ulnar collateral ligament and repaired a partially torn flexor-pronator tendon.

"He is expected to make a full recovery," the Mets said in a statement.
