Found July 30, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
With Zack Wheeler and Jenrry Mejia now firmly entrenched after promotions from the minors, which Mets prospect are you now most excited to see? I posed the question to some of our writers and here is what they came up with: Daniel - I hope Travis d’Arnaud can get healthy and productive and make an appearance at some point. John Buck is definitely back to Earth and Anthony Recker hasn’t proven enough to get consistent playing time. Satish - He’s still a while away, but Gabriel Ynoa. MMN readers know about my man-crush on Ynoa, who I feel is the complete package and will likely turn into a stud pitcher. Joe S. – Wilmer Flores intrigues me as does Noah Syndergaard. Jessep – Noah Syndergaard Connor – Noah Syndergaard David - Wilmer Flores, because he hits for power, good average and he has played a few positions and if brought in the right way can be a great impact on the team. Drew – I want to see what Kevin Plawecki can do at a higher level. Disappointed at the way this front office m...

Wheeler One Of The Best With RISP, But Oh Those Home Runs…

DING DONG THAT PITCH IS DEAD…  One of the things that has impressed me about Zack Wheeler is his ability to dig down deep within himself with runners on base or in scoring position. Since his big-league debut on June 18, forever known to Mets fans as Super Tuesday, Wheeler has allowed batters to hit just .114 with runners in scoring position. That ranks third in the majors over...

Zack Wheeler Shows What The Fuss Was About

When the New York Mets traded Carlos Beltran, arguably one of their top three position players in history, for prospect Zack Wheeler, they said this guy was going to be good. Really good. We got a glimpse of just how good Tuesday night in Miami when he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. He lost it, but also impressive was despite the emotions of losing history, he kept his...

Wheeler and Harvey Bringing Hope Back To Flushing

Zack Wheeler proved why he has the potential to transform the New York Mets into legitimate contenders this week after a sterling pitching performance that saw him take a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Marlins. The rookie righthander had his no-hit bid broken up with one out in the seventh and settled for a no-decision, but the swagger and fight we saw from him that...

Francisco Told Mejia He Should Milk It And Just Collect His Paycheck

Stop sniffing yourself, Frank. We all know you stink. According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Frank Francisco advised Jenrry Mejia to remain in Port St. Lucie to collect his Major League disabled list money during the rehab process, rather than work his way back by playing in minor league games. The team source told Martino that Mejia opted to tune out Francisco and instead...

Zack Looked Like The Wheel Deal Last Night

Why A Pitch Limit Is Better Than An Innings Limit

Photo by Ed Leyro The Mets have stated that Matt Harvey is going to be capped at around 210 innings.  Similarly, Zack Wheeler will have his season come to an end when he reaches 185 innings.  As of today, Harvey has competed 145 innings, while Wheeler has tossed 108⅔ innings between AAA-Las Vegas and the Mets.  That leaves approximately ten starts for both Harvey and Wheeler...

The Wheel, The Fail, The Fall, Close Call

The one thing that Zack Wheeler has struggled with in his brief career has been lack of command driving up his pitch count. It's not an uncommon occurrence for young pitchers. When Wheeler puts it together like he did against San Francisco, he is an absolute treat to watch. He put it together and more against Miami, no-hitting them for six and a third innings before the Marlins...

Wheeler takes no-hitter into seventh, Mets beat Marlins 4-2 in 10

For the Mets the night was headed from no-no to “No no!” until John Buck drove a Steve Cishek pitch through the middle in the 10th inning at Marlins Park. Zack Wheeler’s no-hit bid had long ended by then but the Mets were allowed to celebrate the more mundane: a 4-2 victory over the Marlins in the fourth extra-inning game between the division rivals this season. The Mets...

51s Breeze Past River Cats In Wind Shortened Game

  Las Vegas 13, Sacramento 4 In a weird game that was called early due to extreme wind conditions, the 51s blew away the River Cats last night in Sacramento. In what’s becoming a running theme, Las Vegas jumped out to a lead early on– scoring five runs in the first thanks to a pair of two-run hits off the bats of Wilmer Flores (double) and Jordany Valdespin (single). Sacramento...
