The New York Mets placed Zack Wheeler on the 10-day disabled list Monday and recalled fellow right-hander Tyler Pill from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Wheeler, who has been struggling in his comeback from Tommy John surgery in 2015, is being plagued by a stress reaction in his right arm. The 27-year-old had been on the disabled list from June 21-July 1 with biceps tendinitis.
Wheeler owns a 3-7 mark with a 5.21 ERA in 17 starts with the Mets this season. He has allowed 26 earned runs over his last 23 2/3 innings since June 13.
Pill hasn't fared well in five games this season with New York, posting an 0-3 mark with a 5.00 ERA. The 27-year-old recorded a 4-3 mark with a 3.47 ERA in 13 starts for Las Vegas this season.
