St. Lucie blew out Tampa, 7-1.
Savannah got blown out by West Virginia, 10-1.
At 2:35 PM ET, all eyes will be on Mets prospect Zack Wheeler as he takes the mound for the 51s. After a so-so last start, Wheeler looks to rebound against the Reno Aces. As always, the pressure is on Wheeler to try to throw a high strike rate and dispel the concerns about his control. The stuff will always be there for Zack Wheeler, and every start is a step towards the future for a man who already has one foot in the door. Wheeler’s last start was a mixed bag, because he dominated the first four innings only to fall apart in the middle of the game. He was victimized by two-out hits and walks, and it will be interesting to see how he handles himself this afternoon.
