NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets may bring up top pitching prospect Zack Wheeler to start one of the games of a doubleheader at Atlanta on June 18.
Alderson hinted at the likelihood of calling up Wheeler during an interview earlier in the day on WFAN and then spoke about it later during a telephone interview with The Associated Press.
``It's a possibility,'' Alderson says. ``Quite possible.''
A 23-year-old right-hander, Wheeler was selected by San Francisco with the sixth overall pick of the 2009 amateur draft and was obtained by the Mets two years ago in the trade that sent All-Star outfielder Carlos Beltran to the Giants.
