Zack Wheeler Has Second Straight Bad Outing
Mets top prospect Zack Wheeler was shelled for ten hits and six runs (five earned) in four innings today in New Britain where the B-Mets were playing the Rock Cats.
For Wheeler it was his second straight bad outing. On July 20, the right-hander was lit up for eight earned runs in 3.2 innings by Bowie, having allowed six hits and three walks.
It was rumored yesterday that Wheeler could be heading to Buffalo to replace Matt Harvey, but that never happened and these last two performances could give the organization some reason to pause.
In four of his last six starts, Wheeler has allowed five or more earned runs. In that span he has allowed 25 runs in 37.2 innings.
With Cory Mazzoni now on the DL with a finger cut/blister issue, I’m thinking Wheeler will stay put at least until Mazzoni returns.
