Zack Wheeler SP NYM 3 Days

Zack Wheeler was stellar again on Sunday, limiting the Padres to one run over six innings, but got a no-decision as the Mets lost in walk-off fashion to the Padres.

Wheeler had the misfortune of going up against Odrisamer Despaigne, who brought a no-hit bid into the eighth inning. The Mets' right-hander allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out seven. He has now allowed one run or fewer in five out of his last six outings. As a result, his ERA has been lowered to 3.78 with a 1.36 WHIP and a 112/47 K/BB ratio. Wheeler's next start comes on Friday in Milwaukee against the Brewers.

Zack Wheeler held the Marlins to just one run over 6 1/3 innings in Friday's 7-1 win over the Marlins.

The lone run scored on an RBI single from Christian Yelich in the fifth inning. Wheeler struck out six and walked two in the victory. Oddly, he now has three straight starts of 6 1/3 innings with one run allowed. It's been an up-and-down first half for the 24-year-old, but he'll go into the All-Star break wit ha 3.90 ERA and 105/46 K/BB ratio over 108 1/3 innings. There's still every reason to believe that he's just scratching the surface.

Zack Wheeler tossed 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Mets' 8-4 defeat of the Rangers.

Wheeler was staked to a five-run lead after the first inning and cruised, with the only Texas run against him coming on a solo home run by Robinson Chirinos in the top of the fourth. Wheeler struck out four and walked two. He has a 4.07 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 99/44 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 frames this season.

Zack Wheeler limited the Braves to one run over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision Monday.

Wheeler left with a 3-1 lead, but a four-run eighth ended his chances of picking up a win. Wheeler was wild tonight, walking five and hitting a batter, but the Braves couldn't capitalize. It still seems like it's going to be at least 2015 before he's a consistent starter or of much use in mixed leagues.

Zack Wheeler was hammered and took his eighth loss, allowing six runs over two innings as the Mets were defeated by the Athletics on Wednesday.

Not exactly the follow-up to Thursday's shutout against the Marlins that the Mets were expecting. Wheeler allowed six hits -- including a two-run home run to Brandon Moss -- while walking two and striking out four. The inconsistent right-hander will take a 4.45 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 91/37 K/BB ratio into next week's road start against the Braves.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that the team will be "more cautious" with Wheeler's workload going forward.

"I'm going to try to monitor it so he gets through September, because I think it would be good for him to finish the year," Collins said. "That's the way you learn." The Mets have an innings limit picked out for Wheeler but haven't made it public, so they're going to try to stretch him as far as possible by limiting his workload in games. That likely means we won't see many more performances like his complete-game shutout of the Marlins last Thursday, but it really won't have a meaningful effect on his fantasy value until September rolls around, if then.

Zack Wheeler put together a gem, shutting out the Marlins over nine innings in Thursday's win.

Wheeler improved to 3-7 with the fine effort. The Marlins couldn't get anything going against the 24-year-old right-hander, as he allowed only the three hits (all singles) and one walk while striking out eight. It was the first time in his career he had made it into the eighth inning. Wheeler will bring a 3.93 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and an 87/35 K/BB ratio in 87 innings into his next start against the Athletics at home.

Zack Wheeler held the Cubs scoreless over 6 2/3 innings but was denied the victory in the Mets' loss on Tuesday.

Wheeler was brilliant, allowing just two singles and walking two while striking out seven. Unfortunately he wasn't able to secure his third win, as the Mets bullpen blew the lead and eventually the game. Still, Wheeler now has a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 69/29 K/BB ratio over 69 1/3 innings on the year. He'll be extra motivated to get the win Sunday when he takes on his former organization, the Giants, in San Francisco.
