Mets' Zack Wheeler: Bounces back from rough first inning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (1-2) allowed four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six over seven innings in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Nationals.

He got ambushed in the first inning -- Adam Eaton reached on a HBP that barely grazed his elbow, followed in quick succession by a Trea Turner infield single, a Bryce Harper opposite-field single, and then a Daniel Murphy grand slam -- but Wheeler settled down nicely after that, holding the Nats scoreless for six more innings and giving the Mets a chance to get back into the game. The right-hander ended his night throwing 65 of 101 pitches for strikes in his longest outing so far this season. While Wheeler's 5.40 ERA isn't great, it isn't reflective of his 1.11 WHIP or 21:6 K:BB through 21.2 innings. He'll get a chance at revenge on the NL East leaders Saturday in Washington.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Whiffs seven in solid outing against Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler struck out seven over five innings while allowing one run on four hits and two walks against the Phillies on Tuesday. He didn't factor into the decision in the eventual 10-inning loss.

While he didn't exactly address concerns about his endurance by lasting just five innings -- thanks in large part to a highly inefficient second frame -- Wheeler did manage to throw 99 pitches. He's making steady progress from start to start, but he also hasn't had to face any high-grade offenses yet. That'll change in his next start, as Wheeler will be tasked with holding down the Nationals on Sunday.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Wins despite lack of endurance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (1-1) gave up three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four over 5.2 innings in a win against the Phillies on Wednesday.

This start was better than the box score, as the righty cruised through five scoreless frames, only to be yanked after loading the bases in the sixth; Hansel Robles promptly gave up a grand slam to Maikel Franco, accounting for all three of Wheeler's runs. Still, it's concerning that he seemed to run out of steam and ended up throwing just 85 pitches before being removed; it seems like Wheeler still needs to build up his endurance after a lengthy absence from MLB action. He's slated to meet the Phillies again Tuesday, this time at Citi Field.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Tagged for five runs in long-awaited return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (0-1) gave up five run on six hits and a walk while striking out four over four innings in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Marlins.

Pitching on 924 days rest after his long recovery from Tommy John surgery, Wheeler whiffed two of the first four batters he faced but quickly fell back to earth after the adrenaline wore off. There were some positives to the outing -- he threw 54 of 80 pitches for strikes, and his fastball topped out at 97 mph -- but stamina and consistency are likely going to be issues for Wheeler for as long as the Mets let him pitch this season. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Slated to throw roughly 85 pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Terry Collins said that Wheeler will throw around 85 pitches in Friday's start against the Marlins, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Collins also noted that Wheeler wouldn't be given the hook early in order to save his innings count. It seems like the Mets are still being a bit cautious with the right-hander given his extensive injury history, but it's still good to see the leash is fairly long for Wheeler's first MLB start since 2014. He'll be facing off against Marlins lefty Wei-Yin Chen in Friday's tilt.
