Zack Wheeler told reporters at Citi Field on Wednesday during a coat drive that he's amenable to whatever role the Mets select. Wheeler is due to resume throwing a baseball later this month. He has missed two full seasons due to setbacks in his return from Tommy John surgery. "I've started my whole life, and obviously I'd like to do that," Wheeler said, according to Newsday. "But they're looking out for me, innings-wise and stuff like that. I've been out for two years, so … whatever's best for my health is what's fine with me and the plan going forward." The Mets have floated having Wheeler potentially start 2017 in the bullpen to shave innings before entering the rotation later in the year.
