Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Jul 30

I’ve found myself becoming an increasingly bigger fan of Zack Wheeler. While he’s certainly erratic and still prone to some blowups, he doesn’t allow a ton of homers and has major upside on any given day. He comes in at number two in Wednesday’s rankings. There are a lot of really big names pitching Wednesday. Corey Kluber is among them, but Steamer’s ROS projected 3.47...

Celebrating the last 12 starts of Zack Wheeler

Everyone’s an expert (or critic) after the fact. That’s why preseason projections are such a nice thing to have. Before the season started, the official Mets360 projection for Zack Wheeler was for a 3.48 ERA and a 3.68 FIP. Currently, he has numbers that are almost perfectly reversed, as he sports a 3.64 ERA and a 3.47 FIP. Essentially, he’s pitching just the way the average...

Wheeler Shines In Mets Loss

There weren’t many positives to come out of the Mets 2-1 loss to the Pardes on Sunday, except for how Zack Wheeler shined. For the fourth straight game the right hander registered a quality start, throwing six strong innings, while only allowing one run. Unfortunately for Wheeler, he was subjected to another poor offensive performance by his teammates. Wheeler has been subject...

DraftKings – Wheelerin’ and Dealerin’

Zack Wheeler ($7,700) takes the mound today against an impotent Padres offense. San Diego is hitting a cool .220 against right-handers this season. If you are into advanced stats, they have posted a 76 wRC+ against RHP in 2014. Any way you slice it, they suck. For less than $8K, I'm putting just about anybody out there against the Padres especially in their pitching-friendly...

The Mets would be crazy to trade Zack Wheeler

As an active reader of what is probably way too many Mets blogs, message boards, ESPN Insider articles, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a feeling that the Mets should considering dangling Zack Wheeler in a trade for a premium bat. The biggest name being thrown around right now is Starlin Castro, mainly because the Cubs suddenly became loaded at SS with the addition of Addison...

Think Mets should trade Zack Wheeler? Not so fast

Zack Wheeler offered proof on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field why it’s just plain to foolish to have his name mentioned in any type of trade scenarios involving the Mets this season or any time in the near future. You simply don’t give up on a young pitcher at any price, especially the kind of pitcher Wheeler could turn out to be. Sure, in today’s world of social media and...

Zack Wheeler is Doing Better Than You Think

One of the many things that have caused concern for Mets fans so far in the 2014 season is the inconsistent performance of former top prospect Zack Wheeler. Wheeler as of right now is 3-8 with an ERA of 4.25 After bursting onto the scene in the middle of 2013 to the tune of a 3.42 ERA in his rookie season, many expected Wheeler to take it to the next level and perhaps fill the void...

Was It Just A Bad Outing For Wheeler?

It was just under a week ago that we all witnessed something that we had been waiting for.  With no fault of our own, we let our hopes skyrocket for Zack Wheeler, and he delivered his best start in the major leagues, throwing a complete game three-hit shutout against the Miami Marlins. What would he do for an encore? As he reached back and fired his first pitch on Wednesday night...

Wheeler Tosses Complete Game Three Hit Gem

Just what the doctor ordered, a complete game gem by Zack Wheeler, when he and the Mets needed it the most. On Thursday night against the Marlins in Miami, Wheeler threw a dazzling, 111 pitch three hit shutout, which was the best game of his brief major league career. “I still had plenty,” Wheeler tells Adam Rubin of ESPN NY after the game. “He showed you tonight exactly what...

New York Mets: time to worry about Zack Wheeler?

Coming into the season, the New York Mets were expecting a breakout year from Zack Wheeler as a replacement for Matt Harvey. Wheeler has failed to deliver. He hasn’t been able to string together positive starts and as a result he has a record of 2-7 with an ERA of 4.38, nearly a full point higher than he had last season. Zack Wheeler has struggled to keep opposing teams off the...
