|Zack Wheeler gets plenty of support for third straight win |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/30/14) Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler continued his solid run Wednesday, in an 11-2 win over the Phillies.
Wheeler racked up big pitch counts earlier and actually fell behind 1-0 in the fifth inning, but the offense picked him up in a big way. Wheeler ended up allowed two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings, with four strikeouts and two walks on 112 pitches as he cruised to victory.
Wheeler has won three straight decisions, and has not lost in six starts, as he improved his record to 6-8. He has a 3.60 ERA heading into his next start, set for Tuesday against the Nationals.

Collins added Sunday the last two spots in the rotation will be determined by health considerations, according to The Star-Ledger.
|Zack Wheeler turns in strong start against the Marlins |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler turned in an excellent start against the Marlins Friday.
Wheeler allowed one run on five hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out six during the appearance. Wheeler’s only blemish came in the fifth inning. After putting two men on, Wheeler allowed a run-scoring single to Christian Yelich. He was able to work out of the inning without giving up any more damage. Wheeler threw 114 pitches during the start.
The win moves Wheeler to 5-8 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break.
|Zack Wheeler's debut last summer was as highly anticipated as fellow Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey's arrival to The Big Apple the previous summer. While Harvey might have had slightly better results as a rookie, Wheeler was no slouch. While he had some ups and downs, he finished with seven wins and a 3.42 ERA in 17 starts. His season highlights included winning his MLB debut behind six scoreless innings and a 12-strikeout performance against the Padres. Wheeler did deal with some command issues last year, walking 4.1 batters per nine innings and totaling six wild pitches. But he had the same issues in the minors on his way to becoming one of baseball's top pitching prospects. But overcoming command issues is easier in the minors than the majors. Wheeler might be able to neutralize his wildness if he continues to be a strong strikeout pitcher. He is only 23 years old and could grow out of his control problems the more major-league starts he gets under his belt. He's definitely worth a look in the late rounds of mixed-league drafts because of his upside.
