Zack Wheeler has slight inflammation in the AC joint in his shoulder, and he will miss one start, assistant GM John Ricco told reporters today.
Wheeler received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and is flying to rejoin Triple-A Las Vegas.
4:25 p.m: Wheeler has no structural damage in his right clavicle, his agent said, according to Jorge Castillo of The Star-Ledger.
Will Carroll, Injury Expert:
6:06 pm: Well you’d rather not have any injury, this was about as good as you can get from this sort of issue. Wheeler has a little bit of a problem at the AC joint, which should be cleared up. The big worry is impingement, but catching this early is a good chance to figure out what the real causes picture that he’s healthy long-term.
