Zack Wheeler

Being the starting pitcher in the second game of a doubleheader, after two teams had already played a game until the early morning hours the previous night was the best time for a MLB debut I would say. I'm not sure any of that even mattered after seeing Zack Wheeler pitch. This guy may be better than Matt Harvey. He was a bit wild, but his fastball just explodes onto the hitter. Some pitchers can be effectivly wild until they mature, so I think Wheeler will use this to his advantage until he gets more innings under his belt. The other major thing that I noticed was the consistency in his delivery for the most part. His motion looks very arm friendly. Just when you thought the Met's might be un-watchable you now have a reason to watch them to times a week.
