Zack Wheeler Makes BA’s Prospect Hot Sheet
Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet for the period April 13-19 has Mets top prospect RHP Zack Wheeler ranked #6 and RHP Domingo Tapia gets an honorable mention.
Yesterday, the Mets tweeted that since first donning a Mets uniform, Zack Wheeler has struck out 52 batters in 42 innings pitched while only allowing 38 hits, 10 walks and no home runs given up.
Regarding Tapia, BA writes:
Arm strength never has been an issue for Tapia, who sat 94-96 mph last year in Rookie ball, but missing bats had not come easy. He struck out 5.4 batters per nine innings last year in Appalachian League, and 5.6 the year before in the Gulf Coast League. If the early results are to be believed, that may no longer be an issue for Tapia, a 20-year-old Dominican who was fanned 11 and walked one through 12 innings for low Class A Savannah this season. Look for more on this Mets sleeper in a Prospect Bulletin later today.
What? No Chase Huchingson or Jack Leathersich?
