Last night in the night cap of the Mets Day Night Double Header Zack Wheeler made his MLB debut. Wheeler looked solid as he pitched 6 shutout innings striking out 7 while surrendering only 4 hits. However, he also walked 5 batters and showed control issues similar to what he has shown in Triple A thus far this year. Wheeler did buckle down to strand all base runners which helped show that the kid has the guts to compete at this level.
Wheeler still looked a little nervous to me last night but he settled down well and overall turned in a solid outing for the Mets. It will be interesting to see if Wheeler will follow the same quick path to stardom as Mets ace Matt Harvey who was fantastic in yesterday’s earlier game setting a new career high in K’s. With that being said it is very important for the Mets to get Ike Davis back from triple A and performing to his potential as well as getting Travis d’Arnaud healthy and back on the field.
In other news the Mets acquired Eric Young Jr. last night from the Rockies in exchange for Collin McHugh who will be in Center Field tonight and will bat leadoff for the Mets.
