Zack Wheeler is due to long toss in Port St. Lucie on Monday. It will mark his first time throwing since receiving the cortisone injection last week in New York for elbow discomfort. The Mets say Wheeler's surgically repaired elbow is structurally sound. It certainly appears as though Wheeler will not reach the majors until August, although the Mets have been noncommittal on a revised timetable.

Terry Collins said Jeurys Familia is likely unavailable Sunday and Addison Reed may not be available, either. Hansel Robles or Erik Goeddel may close on Sunday against the Braves.

Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera both needed a day off. Granderson's legs are tired, according to Terry Collins. Cabrera, who never does, asked for Sunday off. At least they'll be fresh for Nationals series.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

As a former GM here is why Braves GM John Coppolella says he doesn't expect to trade Julio Teheran: 1. He doesn't want the player to be thinking about the possibility which could disrupt his performances. 2. He wants the leverage in trade negotiations that not only he doesn't have to trade him but is not inclined unless he is totally overwhelmed and wins the deal. 3. If he doesn't get what he wants in trade offers and holds on to the player, he's prepared the fan base for no deal. However, in their rebuilding process trading him is probably the best move based on where they are and the low inventory of quality starting pitching on the present trade market.....which should allow for a strong rebuilding trade just like the Shelby Miller trade they made in the off-season. Bottom line: ignore his comment.
