Zack Wheeler Gives Up Two Runs In Spring Debut

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Zack Wheeler allowed two runs in two innings pitched in his first Spring Training start. After a clean first inning, Wheeler gave up a hit to Randal Grichuk before serving up a two-run homer to Danny Jansen. Wheeler signed a five-year contract with Philadelphia this offseason, and is expected to be one of the leaders on this pitching staff. He has pitched to an ERA and FIP under four each of the past two seasons and averaged almost a strikeout per inning making him an attractive fantasy option at his average draft position that is outside the top-100 overall.

Zack Wheeler Agrees With Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies and starting pitcher Zack Wheeler are in agreement on a five-year deal worth more than $100 million, according to sources. Wheeler's market was moving very fast and he was expected to sign before next week's winter meetings. The right-hander will slot into a rotation next to the likes of Aaron Nola, Jake Arrieta and Zach Eflin, among others. Wheeler will stay in the familiar National League East, but he's moving to more of a neutral ballpark to more of a hitter-friendly one in Philadelphia. Still, the 29-year-old is a young arm on the rise, and he has one of the hardest average fastballs in the game. If he can continue to pound the strike zone and keep the ball out of the air, Wheeler will be a solid fantasy asset.

Astros In On Zack Wheeler

The Houston Astros are another team interested in starting pitcher Zack Wheeler. At this point, who isn't interested in Wheeler? The right-hander is the third best available starting arm on the market behind Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg, and the Astros are looking at replacing Cole potentially with Wheeler. The Phillies, Reds, White Sox, Twins and maybe others are looking at Wheeler, and he could sign a deal before next week's winter meetings with his market reaching a fever pitch of late. The 29-year-old is a rising star and posted a 3.96 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 195 K's in 195 1/3 innings last year over 31 starts with the Mets. He'd become a lot more attractive with Houston's lineup supporting him.
