Yup, seems about right.
Everything was going well. Harvey had come back and looked like he hadn’t skipped a beat, we’ve finally got all our young pitching that we’ve been promised for the last 5 years, we were given an actual reason to hope. But I guess this is why we can’t have nice things
Now, obviously this sucks, but at least it isn’t killer. A lot of teams would love to have Dillon Gee be their 5 guy and this will probably just get us closer to seeing Matz/Syndergaard (hopefully Matz). Obviously, the part that sucks the most is having wheeler’s development stop for at least another year, but the Mets are more than equipped to handle this setback.
The worst part of this is the fact that we all had such high expectations for Wheeler this year. He pitched so well the 2nd half of last season, this was supposed to be the year he fully showed us that he had ace potential. Now, we just have to sit and wait for that to happen once again. Will he be back? Yes, he’s 24 years old, he’ll survive this. Will he ever be the ace that we were expecting this year? That we don’t know. The best thing he could do right now is get the surgery and start on that rehab trail. This sucks, but this isn’t the last time we’ll hear from Zack Wheeler
(If anybody needs me I’ll be crying in the shower for the next couple of hours)
