ZACK WHEELER RUMORS & GOSSIP

MMO Morning Grind: And So It Begins…

Good Morning, Mets fans! Our Mets got a nice win last night. Zack Wheeler looked pretty solid, Lucas Duda was great, and Daniel Murphy turned into a Gold Glover for a night. But I have something a bit more troubling on my mind this morning, and that is the Injury Bug. Us Mets fans know all about the Injury Bug by now… with this team, it’s not a question of If, but When, How,...

Zack Wheeler picks up slack for overworked Mets staff

It wasn’t pretty, but Zack Wheeler managed to limit the damage. In what rated as the right-hander’s best performance of his three to start the season, Wheeler allowed two runs on six hits and three walks over 6 ¹/₃ innings in the Mets’ 7-3 victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday. Wheeler improved as the game progressed, allowing only two hits and a walk after the fourth...

MMO Game Recap: Mets 7, Diamondbacks 3

On the positive side: Zack Wheeler improved greatly from his last start, surrendering only two runs, six hits, striking out three and even picking off Chris Ownings in the 3rd!

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. In fact, last year, Matt Harvey proved just how wrong they were when he pitched his way into the elite class of pitchers. Wheeler made his debut last year...

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: Metsmerized.com) 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. When he was able to locate his fastball he was extremely effective. In the first inning it was 95-96 mph, but by the sixth, when...

Mets Today: Wheeler Starts; Vegas Bound

There’s a lot to like about Zack Wheeler, who really wants the ball Opening Day for the Mets. Manager Terry Collins said if Jonathon Niese isn’t physically ready, he would decide between Bartolo Colon and Dillon Gee. Colon is the most experienced, but with no goodwill stock in the organization. Gee is deserving based on 199 innings last year, but ambivalent to the prospect. Meanwhile...

Zack Wheeler Continues Strong Spring

It difficult not to get caught up in the short sample sizes of spring training, but Zack Wheeler continued his thus far impressive campaign yesterday against the Atlanta Braves.  Wheeler pitched three innings for the second time this spring.  Although Sunday's outing was not as economical as his first (50 pitches vs. 40 pitches), Wheeler is yet to give up a run this spring...

Wheeler Will Be Walking A Fine Line In 2014

Over at FanGraphs this morning, Jeff Zimmerman posted an excellent piece about Zack Wheeler and the challenges that lie ahead for the young pitcher.  In it, he outlines two areas which may send Wheeler's career in one direction or the other.  Those areas were his walk rate and his risk of injury.Zimmerman mentions that Wheeler was one of only four qualified starting pitchers...
