Which Wheeler?  I assume the CI one they got from AZ, not the OF.

Wheeler was awful at 3b tonight and was a main reason the Rox lost tonight. A few more games like this and Arenado owners will see him sooner rather than later

At this point, I don't think performance at 3B has any bearing on whether he gets called up.

If it was performance he'd already be up, I agree.  They are holding out on the clock it seems.

I agree, this does not have to do with performance just with Arbitration clock.

One and the same.  And while there is no set date, you are right about the general time frame for avoiding super 2.  Mid-June is generally considered "safe."

He's coming up for Sunday, indeed. The move comes pretty late in the day so I figure a lot of guys wanting to snap him up might be beaten to the punch by some night owls.

Was wondering why he did not play last night in AAA. This explains it. Good news indeed!
