Wheeler (2-4) allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits with no walks across six innings en route to a loss Tuesday against the Marlins. He struck out nine.
Wheeler was quite effective aside from the second inning, when four hits and an error plated three for the visitors, with just one going down as an earned run. The right-hander pounded the strike zone at a 74 percent clip and tied his season high in punchouts while delivering his second quality start in three outings. Wheeler has taken his fair share of lumps this season, but he's also flashed his significant upside and will look to build on this outing in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Brewers.
Wheeler (2-3) took the loss against the Blue Jays on Wednesday, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks over four-plus innings while striking out seven.
He continues to rack up Ks -- it's the fourth time in seven starts Wheeler has struck out at least seven batters -- but otherwise this was another ugly outing for the right-hander, as the Jays took him deep twice to push his HR/9 to 1.4 through 38 innings. Wheeler's inconsistency has left him with a 5.92 ERA on the year, making him a risky fantasy play even with a favorable matchup coming up Monday at home against the Marlins.
Wheeler allowed one run on four hits and three walks across six innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Reds. He struck out seven.
It was a nice bounce-back effort from Wheeler, who was tagged for eight runs on 10 hits -- including a pair of homers -- across six innings in his previous outing. He still owns an unsightly 5.03 ERA through 34 innings this season, but if you exclude last week's implosion, the 27-year-old owns a much more respectable 3.54 ERA and 28:11 K:BB across his other five starts (28 innings). He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start, which should come at home against the Blue Jays.
Wheeler (2-2) took the loss against the Rockies on Friday, coughing up eight runs on 10 hits and three walks over six innings while striking out three.
The back end of the Mets' rotation is a disaster right now, and Wheeler is one of the main culprits, After posting quality starts in his first two outings of the season, the right-hander has allowed 14 runs in 15 innings over his last three to rocket his ERA up to 5.79. He'll look to turn things around Wednesday on the road against the Reds.
Wheeler surrendered four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over four innings in Tuesday's win against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.
Wheeler wasn't missing many bats, as he induced just three swings and misses, but he was dotting the zone and got 20 called strikes. The righty twirled quality starts in each of his first two times out, so this effort marks a bit of a step back. With Jason Vargas (hand) set to make his season debut Saturday, there was some concern that Wheeler may not stay in the rotation next time through, but that seems to be a non-issue now thanks to Matt Harvey's move to the bullpen. He's lined up for a favorable matchup against the Padres in San Diego on Sunday.
