2019-07-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who can we get Wheeler for?
(GO YANKS from NY)
I mean obviously Deivi Garcia, since the Mets are scouting him heavily.

I don't even know how healthy Wheeler is, the Mets are being circumspect (shocking, I know) and Wheeler's description of the issue (impingement) sounds more long term than the Mets (soreness). I'd put the odds he even pitches before the deadline at worse than 50/50, but god knows the Yanks have the kind of upper minors, probably relief arms that the Mets crave. Nick Nelson seems very on brand here. But you could go. Rony Garcia, Michael King, Frank German. The possibilities are endless. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
