Manager Joe Girardi confirmed that Wheeler would start the Phillies' second game of the season Saturday against Atlanta, Pat Gallen of CBS 3 Philadelphia reports.
Wheeler made good on the first season of the five-year, $118 million deal he signed with the Phillies last winter, posting a 2.92 ERA and 1.17 WHIP over 11 starts in the abbreviated 2020 campaign. Those strong ratios were somewhat marred by a substantial dip in his strikeout rate (career-worst 6.7 K/9), but Wheeler at least provided some hope for a bounce back in that area this spring. He finished the Phillies' Grapefruit League slate with 22 strikeouts in 19.1 innings, and after topping out at five frames over his six spring starts, he should head into his 2021 season debut without any major restrictions to his pitch count.
Wheeler said Sunday after his second bullpen session of spring training that he has experienced no issues with his throwing since undergoing surgery in October to repair the fingernail on his right middle finger, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Even after ripping the fingernail off last September, Wheeler proceeded to make three starts to close out his first season in Philadelphia, managing to reach the eighth inning in two of them.
Wheeler underwent a successful right middle fingernail resection procedure Oct. 12, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Wheeler is expected to be ready for spring training following his surgery.

Wheeler posted a career-best 2.92 ERA along with a 1.17 WHIP over 71 innings during his first year with the Phillies in 2020.

Despite the mid-game struggles, Wheeler completed seven innings while throwing 118 pitches as the Phillies were hopeful they could stray away from their horrendous bullpen for as long as possible. Wheeler will end his breakout 2020 regular season with a 2.92 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB across 71 inninngs.
