  • 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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Gets little help in loss

    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 seven innings in win

    Wheeler (6-3) earned the win Thursday versus the Nationals. He allowed a run on four hits and no walks with three strikeouts in seven innings.

    Wheeler won his third straight start, with the only damage on his line this time being a fourth-inning solo home run by Josh Bell. This is the sixth time in 12 starts that Wheeler's limited opponents to one or zero runs, though the three strikeouts were his lowest total since his second start of the year. The right-hander trimmed his ERA to 2.69 with a 1.04 WHIP and 78:15 K:BB across 70.1 innings overall after a poor start to the season. He's projected for a road start versus the Rangers next week.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Dominates in win

    Wheeler (5-3) went six innings against Arizona on Saturday, allowing no runs on two hits while striking out eight to earn the win.

    Wheeler earned his fifth straight quality start Saturday, which also resulted in his second win in a row and his fifth of the season. The veteran had a slow start to the year and saw his ERA balloon to 5.79 by the end of April. Since then, the righty has dropped his ERA to 2.84 after allowing just eight earned runs in his last 44.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Back from paternity leave

    Wheeler was activated off the paternity list Friday.

    Wheeler had been away from the team since Tuesday, but he didn't miss any games in which he was scheduled to appear. He's expected to return to the mound Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Scott Kingery was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to clear space on the roster.

  • 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. He'll likely spend the maximum three days away from the team before reporting back to to the Philadelphia clubhouse on the day of his start.

  • 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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Fans 10 in win over Atlanta

    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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Blanks Padres for second win

    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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Officially reinstated from IL

    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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Fans seven in no-decision

    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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: On track to start Thursday

    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.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Lands on COVID-19 IL

    Wheeler (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The 31-year-old will join fellow starting pitcher Zach Eflin (undisclosed), who was previously scheduled to start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader, on the COVID-19 injured list. Wheeler lined up to start during the three-game series in Seattle this week, which begins Monday, but it's now unclear when he'll next take the mound. He'll remain away from the team until he clears MLB's COVID protocols.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Dominant performance in no-decision

    Wheeler allowed six hits and one walk while striking out seven across 7.2 innings during Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Wheeler was able to work his way around six hits, a walk and an error thanks to three double plays. The righty was at only 78 pitches with two outs in the eighth and the bases empty, but he still got the hook in a scoreless game. After giving up 12 runs through his first three starts, Wheeler has put together back-to-back scoreless outings and currently sports a 4.10 ERA with a 25:9 K:BB.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Earns first win

    Wheeler (1-3) allowed one hit and four walks while striking out seven across six scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Rockies.

    Wheeler soothed some early season concern with an outing that was reminiscent of his excellent 2021 campaign. The only hit he surrendered was a leadoff triple to Sam Hilliard in the third inning, but Wheeler managed to work out of the jam. The only downside to Wheeler's start was that he issued four free passes, though he still threw 62 of his 90 pitches for strikes and began 15 of the 22 batters he faced with a strike. Through 18.2 innings, Wheeler owns a bloated 5.79 ERA but Thursday's start was a step forward.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Remains winless

    Wheeler (0-3) took the loss Saturday, giving up four runs on seven hits over five innings as the Phillies fell 5-3 to the Brewers. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The right-hander got handed a 3-0 lead after three innings, but Wheeler couldn't make it stick, getting tagged for all four of his runs in the top of the fifth. While his .372 BABIP is bound to come down, Wheeler's 8.53 ERA through three starts can't be chalked up merely to bad luck, as his 17.7 percent strikeout rate and 7.9 percent swinging strike rate are well below last year's marks and parallel the drop in his velocity -- his 95.0 mph average fastball has lost more than two ticks from 2021.
