  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Tagged for six runs

    Wheeler (11-6) allowed six runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Mets.

    Wheeler had given up just five runs over his previous four starts after yielding six runs against Toronto on July 13. Most of the damage against him Sunday came during a four-run fourth inning highlighted by James McCann's two-run single. Wheeler still owns an impressive 2.92 ERA with a 142:29 K:BB through 22 starts. The 32-year-old righty is projected for a rematch with the Mets at home next week.

    Wheeler (10-5) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings in a 3-1 victory over Atlanta. He struck out seven without walking a batter.

The quality start was his sixth in his last seven trips to the mound, a stretch during which he's posted a 2.54 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 43:7 K:BB through 46 innings.

He threw 69 of 106 pitches for strikes and allowed just one earned run on a second-inning solo homer from Nico Hoerner. Wheeler earned a quality start, his third in four outings this month.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Struggles against Blue Jays

    Wheeler (8-5) was tagged with the loss Wednesday after he pitched 4.2 innings, giving up six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four against the Blue Jays.

    Wheeler simply didn't have his best stuff Wednesday, surrendering six runs for the first time since April 17. Most notably, the right-hander gave up two homers in the fourth frame, a solo blast by Vladimir Guerrero and a two-run shot by Teoscar Hernandez. Coming into the contest, he had registered three straight quality starts, but the poor outing saw his ERA jump from 2.46 to a still impressive 2.89 over 17 starts this season. Wheeler is not expected to make another start until after the All-Star break, tentatively lining up to face the Cubs on July 22.

    Wheeler (8-4) gave up five hits and a walk while striking out five over seven shutout innings to earn the win in a 2-0 victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

    Wheeler continued his dominant campaign by holding the dangerous Cardinals lineup scoreless over seven innings on 97 pitches. The 32-year-old right-hander has now thrown 14 scoreless innings in a row to begin July. The road win is an especially good sign from Wheeler, since he has fared much better at home this season. Wheeler's home OBA is .188 compared to .280 on the road. He will look to pick up his ninth win of the year next week, most likely at Toronto.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Dominant in seventh win

    Wheeler (7-4) earned the win Sunday over the Cardinals. He allowed four hits and a walk with five strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.

    All four hits Wheeler allowed were singles, and he didn't let a Cardinal advance past second base. The right-hander didn't have much swing-and-miss stuff with only 11 whiffs while throwing 72 of 108 pitches for strikes. Wheeler's logged quality starts in all but one of his last nine outings, and this was his fifth start of the year in which he didn't allow a run. He has a 2.66 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 99:20 K:BB through 88 innings in 15 starts overall. The Phillies' ace is projected for a road rematch with the Cardinals next weekend.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Fans eight in quality start

    Wheeler didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk over 6.1 innings. He struck out eight.

    It looked like it might be a rough night for Wheeler after he served up back-to-back homers to Travis d'Arnaud and Matt Olson in the top of the first inning, but the right-hander settled in and delivered his ninth quality start of the season before exiting after 104 pitches (69 strikes). Since the beginning of May, Wheeler has posted a dazzling 2.02 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 76:11 K:BB through 62.1 innings over 10 starts.

    Wheeler (6-4) took the loss Wednesday as the Phillies fell 4-2 to the Rangers, giving up four runs (two earned) on seven hits and three walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out eight.

    The right-hander wasn't particularly sharp, needing 99 pitches (63 strikes) to record 13 outs, but he also got let down by both the Phillies' offense and the team's usual poor defense. The outing snapped a string of six straight quality starts for Wheeler, who still sports a 2.77 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 86:18 K:BB through 74.2 innings on the year.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Goes on paternity leave

    The Phillies placed Wheeler on the paternity list Tuesday.

    Wheeler isn't scheduled to make his next start until Saturday against the Diamondbacks in Philadelphia, so his move to the paternity list isn't expected to affect his availability.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Whiffs nine in win

    Wheeler (4-3) earned the win during Saturday's 7-2 victory over the Angels, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in six innings.

    Philadelphia scored five times in the bottom of the first to give Wheeler an early buffer and the righty cruised through six frames, limiting the damage to one run apiece in the third and fifth innings. The 32-year-old has now recorded at least seven strikeouts in seven straight starts and carried over his dominant May stats to June with an impressive 16 swinging strikes on 99 pitches. Wheeler is slated to take the mound again next weekend at home against Arizona.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Quality start vs. former team

    Wheeler registered a no-decision during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Mets, allowing three runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in six innings.

    Wheeler struggled out of the gates by permitting all three runs on three hits, a walk and an error in the bottom of the first inning, but Philadelphia was able to rally in the later innings to erase him from the record. Sunday's performance concludes a strong May that saw the 31-year-old feature a 1.65 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 40:5 K:BB in 32.2 innings across five starts. A 2.33 FIP suggests Wheeler's 3.16 ERA stands to Improve some, and his next opportunity will come against the Angels next weekend.

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.
