Mets send RHP Zack Wheeler to minors; Lugo likely to start

NEW YORK (AP) Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler will begin the season in the minors after squandering an opportunity to secure a rotation spot during spring training.

New York optioned the oft-injured Wheeler to minor league camp Saturday. The right-hander, who has made only 17 major league starts over the last three years, gave up 22 hits and compiled an 8.10 ERA in 10 Grapefruit League innings.

Wheeler will start the season with Triple-A Las Vegas. Seth Lugo is likely to open as the No. 5 starter for the Mets while newcomer Jason Vargas recovers from surgery for a broken bone in his right (non-pitching) hand.
