Found August 27, 2013 on Fantasy Sports Locker Room:
PLAYERS: Zack Wheeler
TEAMS: New York Mets

Wheeler struck out seven over six and two thirds allowing only two runs in his fourth straight quality start. He has 29 Ks over that span. I’m sure after the Matt Harvey news it’s only a matter of time before they shut Wheeler down for the year, given that they were already giving the matter some consideration last month...

Beck Wheeler Distinguising Himself in Savannah Bullpen

In 1964 a lively, rhyming Shirley Ellis song called “The Name Game” was a Billboard Hot 100 surprise, rocketing all the way to # 3 on the music charts. In 2013, “The Name Game” might refer to two New York Met Pitching Wheelers in baseball circles. That’s Zack Wheeler, the hard-throwing rookie power pitcher drawing rave reviews in Flushing, and Beck Wheeler, a lesser known...

Wheeler Shines, But (As Usual) Run Support An Issue in 2-1 Loss

Despite the dose of bad news we received today, Zack Wheeler gave us a little hope as he shined in his outing today. Unfortunately, the result was not the desired one. The Mets struck first when Andrew Brown hit a second inning single right back up the middle and brought around Marlon Byrd to make the score 1-0. Wheeler was solid through three, but the Phillies got to him in the...

Wheeler Continues To Make Great Strides

On the day the team and its loyal fanbase learned the devastating news that Matt Harvey will likely need Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn UCL in his elbow, Zack Wheeler took the mound and delivered the goods. Despite the 2-1 loss to the Phillies, the young righthander gave us the reassuring start we all needed to help us move on. In 6.2 innings, the 23-year old allowed...

Mets This Week: Watching Wheeler And Listening To Buck Offers

The New York Mets never made it over the hump en route to .500, and after being swept – better yet, mauled – by the Tigers, this week is about licking wounds and finding a positive heading into the last month. The Mets are in serious danger of giving up third place to the Phillies, who are in for four games. But, that’s just cosmetic stuff. WHEELER: Watching him closely. (AP...

Mets cannot expect Zack Wheeler to pick up where Matt Harvey left off … for now

Matt Harvey has a small tear in his UCL, but he has left a pretty large tear in the Mets pitching staff, that, until now, had given Mets fans a good reason to have hope in the future. Harvey had been making a very legitimate run for the NL Cy Young crown, although it seems like Cayton Kershaw has the award all but in his back pocket. The question is now, who is capable of picking...

Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Citi Field • 7:10 PM Cliff Lee (10-6, 3.16) vs Zack Wheeler (6-2, 3.49) I’m so devastated in a baseball sense by today’s news on Matt Harvey… He was supposed to be the poster boy for the new Mets renaissance… Now I don’t know what to think or how to feel…. That said, there is a game today… @MattHarvey33 Thanks for all the...

Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The battle for third place is on! Before the weekend the Mets were in the driver seat for third place but the Tigers did what the Tigers do. Yesterday the Tigers jumped out to an early lead against the Mets but the Mets came back to take the lead 3-2.

Mets’ 2014 Rotation Still Looks Solid

With the Dark Knight down and out, the 2014 New York Mets have another huge hole to add to their list. Pitching is clearly a strength of the team, but it takes a huge hit when the ace could be out for the entire season. So who will be competing for spots in the rotation this coming spring? Barring any additional injuries, you can pencil Dillon Gee, Jon Niese, and Zack Wheeler into...

Looking At Life Mets Without Matt Harvey

Who didn’t watch the New York Mets-Phillies game last night with a bit of indifference? Sure, Zack Wheeler against Cliff Lee possessed an element of interest, but the air was sucked out of the Mets’ season with news earlier in the day Matt Harvey would be lost for the remainder of the year with a partial UCL tear in his elbow. Tommy John surgery is expected. HARVEY: Bare facts...

Mets lose after learning Harvey has torn UCL

Hours after learning that All-Star starter Matt Harvey has a torn elbow ligament, New York Mets manager Terry Collins didn't care who Zack Wheeler was about to face. The potential ace of the rotation was done for the night. ''We said before the game that 105 was the limit,'' Collins said of Wheeler's pitch count. ''Obviously, after what happened...
