Mets' Zack Wheeler: Whiffs nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler did not factor into the decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, pitching seven innings and giving up one run on six hits and no walks while striking out nine.

Wheeler was superb in his seven innings of work, inducing 17 swinging strikes and posting his highest strikeout total since May 31. He departed after the seventh inning in line for a win but watched the Mets' bullpen surrender the lead over the final two frames. Wheeler has now allowed a single run in each of his last four outings to lower his season ERA to 4.09 -- the lowest it has been since Opening Day. The 28-year-old's next scheduled start will be a road tilt in Cincinnati on Saturday.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Works around baserunners in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (11-7) allowed one run on seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across seven innings to earn a victory against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

He's allowing a lot of baserunners and owns a 1.56 WHIP in his last three outings, but during that stretch, he's also pitched three one-run games (1.50 ERA). One has to figure all the baserunners will eventually catch up to Wheeler, but he has just a handful of starts remaining, and owners have to ride the hot streak. He has a 4.21 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 170 strikeouts in 173.1 innings this season. Wheeler will be back on the hill at home Sunday against the Dodgers.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Picks up win against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (10-7) allowed one run on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts across five innings while earning a victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has been inconsistent at times this season, but he's yielded just one run in each of his last two outings. It might not last, though, as Wheeler has been a bit fortunate, only allowing two runs in his last 11 innings despite 19 baserunners. Owners will take it for now, though, as Wheeler has improved his overall numbers -- a 4.33 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 163 strikeouts in 166.1 innings this season. He will face the the Diamondbacks at home in his next outing Tuesday.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler allowed one run on seven hits with three walks and four strikeouts across six innings during a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.

The right-hander and Phillies starter Aaron Nola were locked in a pitcher's duel until they both departed in the sixth and seventh, respectively. Then the two teams combined to score 14 runs in the final two frames. Wheeler experienced an inconsistent August, either pitching shutouts/allowing one run or at least four runs in his six starts. Overall, it led to a 2-1 record and 3.41 ERA this month. He is 9-7 with a 4.41 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 160 strikeouts in 161.1 innings this season. Wheeler will be back on the hill Wednesday in a vital game at the Nationals.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Stumbles to no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 9-5 loss to Atlanta, giving up five runs (four earned) on five hits and four walks over six innings while striking out three.

The right-hander tossed only 60 of 108 pitches for strikes and got tagged for homers by Ozzie Albies and Josh Donaldson in the third inning, and Wheeler hit the showers with the game tied 5-5. He'll carry a 4.46 ERA and 156:42 K:BB through 155.1 innings into his next start Friday in Philadelphia.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Goes five innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler gave up four runs (three earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out two through five innings in a no-decision against the Royals on Sunday.

Wheeler was spotted an early three-run lead and didn't allow a hit through the first three innings, but he allowed four runs in his final two innings of work. Wheeler's struggles on the road continued, as he has a 4.52 ERA in 73 innings away from Citi Field. The 29-year-old has a 4.40 ERA with 153 strikeouts through 24 starts this season. Wheeler will make his next start Saturday against the Braves at Citi Field.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Ambushed by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (9-7) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up five runs on 12 hits and two walks over five innings while striking out two as the Mets fell 5-3 to Atlanta.

The dozen hits were the most Wheeler has allowed in any start this season, and he saw both his 15-inning scoreless streak and three-game winning streak snapped on a tough night. The right-hander will carry a 4.36 ERA and 151:37 K:BB through 144.1 innings into his next outing Sunday in Kansas City.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Blanks Marlins for ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (9-6) picked up the win in Tuesday's 5-0 victory over the Marlins, allowing eight hits and a walk over eight scoreless innings while striking out five.

The right-hander pounded the zone, throwing 72 of 101 pitches for strikes and starting 22 of 31 batters off with first-pitch strikes, and an underpowered Miami lineup simply wasn't able to do any damage. Wheeler now has a 15-inning scoreless streak going, and he'll carry a 4.20 ERA and 149:35 K:BB through 139.1 innings into his next start Aug. 13 in Atlanta.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Dominates White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (8-6) picked up the win against the White Sox on Thursday, scattering four hits over seven shutout innings, striking out seven with no walks as the Mets won 4-0.

Wheeler was brilliant in his second start since returning from the injured list with a shoulder injury, blanking the White Sox and nailing down his eighth win of the season. The 29-year-old now sports a 4.45 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and a 144:34 K:BB over 131.1 innings ahead of his next start, which will pit him against the Marlins in a Tuesday home matchup.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Earns victory in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (7-6) allowed three runs on six hits with no walks and seven strikeouts across 5.1 innings while earning a victory against the Pirates on Friday.

Activated Friday morning from the IL, Wheeler showcased great control for not pitching in the bigs since July 7. He also continued to average more than a strikeout per inning, which he's done in each of his last four starts. Wheeler moved back above .500 with the win and owns a 4.71 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 137 strikeouts in 124.1 innings this season. He will pitch next at the White Sox on Thursday.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Activated for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list to start Friday's game against the Pirates.

Wheeler spent nearly three weeks on the shelf with right shoulder soreness, but he's ready to make his return to the starting rotation. The 29-year-old's next turn through the rotation lines up for Aug. 1, so Friday could be his last start with the Mets if he is traded in the coming days.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Confirmed for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) is slated to start Friday's game against the Pirates, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

This was the assumed target date for Wheeler's activation, and the Mets will proceed with that plan. It is possible that this will be Wheeler's last start as a Met, considering he would next line up to start Aug. 1 against the White Sox.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Tosses sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch simulated game Tuesday and feels ready to return from the 10-day injured list, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Wheeler stated Tuesday that he's ready to return as soon as possible, though the Mets still haven't announced when the right-hander's next start will come. He's targeting a Friday return and would be on a 75-to-80 pitch limit if he is cleared to take the mound in New York's series opener with the Pirates.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Could return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to return from the injured list Friday against the Pirates, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Wheeler is dealing with some ill-timed shoulder fatigue right as the Mets were expected to be shopping him ahead of the trade deadline. His exact return date remains uncertain, but he appears to be on the right track after a successful bullpen session Sunday.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Likely to return against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) is expected to return from the injured list during New York's upcoming weekend series against the Pirates, which runs from July 26 to July 28, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

While the Mets have yet to confirm this, Wheeler tossed a bullpen session Sunday, which means he's likely closing in on a return from the shelf. More information on the right-hander's status should surface later in the week.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Set for a bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

There has been plenty of optimism surrounding Wheeler's return, with DiComo also going on to say that the Mets may activate him early next week. The right-hander could be a major chip at the trade deadline if he can prove his health. Wheeler has managed a 4.69 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 119 innings while striking out 130 batters.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Could return within one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) could return to the mound within the next week, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Wheeler managed to throw 13 pitches from the slope of the mound Friday, per Puma, though he still hasn't attempted to toss a side session. The Mets are optimistic about the right-hander's chances of returning in the near future, however, as they'd like to give Wheeler an opportunity to prove his health to teams around the league prior to the trade deadline.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Throws again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) made 10 throws from 75 feet and 15 throws from 90 feet Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Wheeler has now thrown on back-to-back days, though the Mets will continue to proceed with caution with the right-hander. "We'll just see how this plays out with him," stated manager Mickey Callaway. "Obviously, playing catch and how he feels continuing to play catch will dictate a lot of what goes on next. So we'll just feel him out day to day and see where we're at." Wheeler was placed on the 10-day injured list July 15 due to right shoulder fatigue.

July 17, 2019 01:00 PM
Mets' Zack Wheeler: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (shoulder) played catch Wednesday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Wheeler landed on the injured list Tuesday with a shoulder injury. His stay isn't expected to be a lengthy one, a notion supported by the fact that the right-hander has already resumed throwing. Wheeler is eligible to return next Tuesday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with what the Mets termed shoulder fatigue, though he referred to the issue as an impingement. Regardless of the exact nature of the injury, both Wheeler and the Mets seem to expect his absence to be a brief one.
