This afternoon in San Francisco, Sandy Alderson told reporters it was unlikely Zack Wheeler, who was promoted to Triple-A today, will pitch in the big leagues this season.
Alderson said Wheeler has a limit in place of around 150 innings this season, and that will allow him to only pitch through the remainder of the Bisons’ season.
Wheeler went 10-6 with a 3.26 ERA in 19 starts for Double-A Binghamton, allowing 92 hits and 43 walks while striking out 117 in 116 innings.
Aug 1, 4:49 pm: The Mets announced they have promoted Wheeler to Triple- A Buffalo.
Wheeler went 10-6 with a 3.26 ERA in 19 starts for Double-A Binghamton, having allowed 92 hits and 43 walks while striking out 117 in 116 innings.
He made his final start for the B-Mets last night – he allowed two runs and four hits with 11 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings against Harrisburg.
