Post-break rotation plans starting to take shape for Mets
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/14) After announcing Bartolo Colon the starter for the first game after the All-Star break, Mets manager Terry Collins said Dillon Gee will pitch the second game at San Diego and Zack Wheeler will close out the three-game series. 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 gets back on track
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/14) Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler allowed one run on six hits over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Rangers. He improved to 4-8 while lowering his ERA to 4.07.

After walking five in his previous start, Wheeler walked two Sunday and struck out four. The only run he allowed came on Robinson Chirinos' fourth-inning solo homer. Wheeler will face the Marlins at home Friday.

Zack Wheeler walks five in no-decision vs. Braves Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/14) Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler didn't factor into the decision Monday after giving up just one earned run on four hits and five walks in 6 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 5-3 loss to the Braves.

Wheeler was able to work around the wildness during the first four innings before the Braves scored a run on a sacrifice fly in the fifth, but it would be all the offense the Mets pitcher would allow before the bullpen blew the lead in the eighth inning. He owns a 4.25 ERA and 95:42 K:BB ratio in 95 1/3 innings. Wheeler is on track to face the Rangers Sunday.

Time to give up on Zack Wheeler?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/14) Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler had another rough start Wednesday against the A's, adding to his disappointing season. Though, Wheeler's start Wednesday was really disappointing because he had just come off a great start at Miami.

At one point during Wednesday's start Wheeler asked catcher Travis d'Arnaud to change up signs because he felt maybe the A's were a little too much on top of his pitches. Though, after the game Wheeler just called it "a bad outing." Well, he's had more than one of those this season.

It really seems Wheeler is still just having to deal with a little bit of bad luck. His groundball rate is up significantly (from 43.2 percent in 2013 to 53.5 percent in 2014, per FanGraphs.com), so it's no surprise his BABIP is at .332, which is well above the league average for starters (.296). It's really the only explanation because his hits per nine innings is barely up, he's giving up less home runs, his walk rate is down and his strikeout rate is up compared to last season. 

Given Wheeler's upside, I'd bench him over dropping him in the majority of Fantasy leagues. Shallow-league owners have a greater luxury of dropping Wheeler given what's on waivers, but if you're in a 12-team or deeper format, I'd still keep him on my roster.
