Zack Wheeler To Start In Chicago On Tuesday

zack-wheeler1Michael Baron of Metsblog has reported that Zack Wheeler will get the nod tomorrow against the Chicago White Sox.

This didn’t come as much of a surprise, especially with Jon Niese going down with a slight tear in his rotator cuff.

We may be on the verge of something special in Queens, as Wheeler seems to be everything he was advertised to be. Now that the butterflies of having his first major league start are out of his system, we should see an even calmer Wheeler take the hill going forward.

Wheeler’s stuff is nasty, and it puts him in the top 15 percent of starting pitchers in the league right now. As long as he keeps his composure and throws strikes, Wheeler should continue to get better as he gets more major league starts under his belt.

Wheeler’s stats from his debut:
