Phils ace Zack Wheeler (forearm) threw a successful bullpen session on Tuesday.
Wheeler will next throw either another bullpen session or a live batting practice session on Friday in Atlanta.
If that workout goes smoothly, he could skip a minor league rehab assignment and jump back into the Phillies’ starting rotation as early as next Tuesday versus the visiting Blue Jays.
The ace right-hander has been on the injured list since August 22 because of forearm tightness.
