Mets | Scout tempers excitement for Zack Wheeler
One scout noticed that New York Mets SP Zack Wheeler threw only 53.9 percent of his pitches for strikes in his major league debut against the Atlanta Braves. "He can strike out hitters with his fastball," the scout said. "But as far as having command of his pitches, especially his secondary pitches, I don't think he's ready."
Fantasy Tip: Wheeler has the stuff to eventually rival teammate Matt Harvey, but that is unlikely to come to fruition this year. The strikeout upside alone is worth owning him in all formats, but it'll probably come with some bumps and bruises.
