Mets | Zack Wheeler needs to improve

New York Mets SP Zack Wheeler acknowledged that he needs to throw more strikes to be effective after he gave up four runs (three earned) and four hits while walking two in six innings against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, July 25. "I've been struggling all year so far with getting ahead," Wheeler said. "It's going to allow me to do a lot better -- keep my pitch count down and let me go deeper into games, and sort of set guys up instead of trying to burn a fastball by them every time." The Mets are trying to keep Wheeler's innings down each start to allow him to pitch deep into the season.
