  • Wheeler (3-3) picked up the win in Monday's 7-3 victory over Atlanta, giving up two runs on eight hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out 10 without walking a batter. The Phillies handed the right-hander a 7-0 lead before Atlanta could even scratch across a run against him in the fifth inning, allowing Wheeler to cruise to his third straight winning decision and fourth quality start in his last five trips to the mound. The 10 whiffs were also a season high, and Wheeler will carry a 3.38 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and impressive 51:10 K:BB through 45.1 innings into his next start.

  • Wheeler (2-3) picked up the win in Wednesday's 3-0 victory over the Padres, scattering four hits over seven scoreless innings while striking out nine without walking a batter. The right-hander set a season high for strikeouts in his best performance of the year, as no San Diego baserunner got past second base. Wheeler has blanked the opposition in three of his last four outings, and after some shoulder soreness in spring training led to a bumpy start to the campaign, he now carries a 3.49 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 41:10 K:BB through 38.2 innings.

  • Wheeler tossed 5.1 innings against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision. Wheeler hadn't pitched in over a week due to a stint on the COVID-19 list, but he looked good early on in his return to the mound Thursday. The right-hander served up a solo homer to Cody Bellinger in the third inning but otherwise kept Los Angeles off the scoreboard until the sixth, when the Dodgers chased him by reaching base three straight times with one out. Wheeler ended up with a no-decision when the Dodgers mounted a late-inning comeback, though the Phillies ultimately prevailed. The veteran hurler will carry a 4.26 ERA into his next start, which is expected to come at home against San Diego next week.

  • Wheeler (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday. Wheeler had been on the COVID-19 IL since Sunday after testing positive for the virus, but he'll return to the Phillies to start Thursday's matchup against the Dodgers. The 31-year-old hasn't made a start since May 4, but he's struck out 14 in 13.2 scoreless innings over his last two outings.

  • Wheeler is scheduled to join the Phillies in Los Angeles and return from the COVID-19 injured list to start Thursday's series opener against the Dodgers, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Along with Zach Eflin, Wheeler was one of two Philadelphia starting pitchers to land on the COVID-19 IL over the weekend. Though Eflin has yet to be activated after testing positive for the virus, Wheeler was able to clear MLB's COVID-19-related protocols in swifter fashion. He'll be returning to the mound Thursday following more than a week of rest after tossing a season-high 7.2 innings in his last outing May 4 against the Rangers.
