Post exam, Wheeler tweeted:
Feeling good and ready to get going again. Thanks for all the kind words and concerns.Assistant GM John Ricco on Wheeler and his potential MLB callup:

He’s progressing, and I think the results have shown that. I don’t think there’s any one magic thing we’re looking for. We talk on a start-by-start basis and we’ll make a decision based on when we think the time is right.And on the trip to New York and the medical exam:
"We were somewhat conservative by having him checked out. But I still think it was the right decision."No argument here. Allowing Wheeler, or any other pitcher to pitch through shoulder discomfort is counterproductive.
