Zack Wheeler is scheduled to start on Friday for the New York Mets, but reports indicate that there is a "pretty high" chance he'll be traded.

The Mets entered Tuesday 14 games back in the National League East.

"It's just where we're at," a team source said. "If we played better in San Francisco [over the weekend], it might have changed everything."

Wheeler landed on the injured list earlier this month with a right shoulder impingement.
