The Mets have invited Prospects RHP Matt Harvey and OF Matt den Dekker to Spring Training Camp, Adam Rubin reports.
However, Zack Wheeler the young right-hander acquired in the Carlos Beltran deal was not invited.
Wheeler only finished the year in A-ball so he is not as polished. Plus,as one team outsider put it, the Mets would have to spend more on meal money and accommodations. St. Lucie can be quite pricey that time of year.
