The Mets are expecting RHP Zack Wheeler to begin ramping up towards his "spring training" in the next two weeks. The target is still an early July return to the team.
Wheeler had a minor procedure on his right forearm in early April and resumed his throwing program soon after.
The procedure was to remove a suture knot in his forearm, which was related to the Tommy John surgery he had in early 2015.
Sandy Alderson told reporters last month that Wheeler's return to the majors is not expected to be delayed by the procedure.
The 25-year-old Wheeler has said he's been told he'll be able to rejoin the Mets after July 1.
He had a 3.54 ERA and 1.32 WHIP while striking out 187 batters in 185 1/3 innings (32 starts) in 2014.
