Diamondbacks dealt fourth straight loss by Mets

PHOENIX (AP) -- Zack Wheeler pitched effectively, New York's hitters lashed balls all over Chase Field and the Mets walked away with a much-needed win. What's concerning is what it may cost them down the road.

Zack Wheeler is becoming a mature pitcher

A couple of years ago the Mets had two brilliant pitching prospects: Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey. Wheeler was thought to be the one with the higher ceiling as he had a more polished repertoire than Harvey. People were wrong.

Why Did Wheeler Throw 114 Pitches In First Start?

I’ve received two emails this morning asking me why Zack Wheeler was allowed to throw 114 pitches in Thursday’s 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals – one short of his career high. I couldn’t really tell you the exact reason why, but if I were to venture a guess I’d say it was because Terry Collins doesn’t trust his bullpen and also because he fears his offense can...

Fantasy Roundup: Command Still an Issue for Wheeler

Sorry, Wheeler — elite “stuff” won’t save you if you have poor control (Photo: Similar to last year Zack Wheeler had trouble consistently throwing strikes with his fastball; the leadoff man got on base in every inning he pitched.
