The order was a point. The breaks were sharp. The radar gun showed no concern.
Zack Wheeler spent 30 pitches on Tuesday afternoon, and walked from the mound Citi Field, which was ready to return from the shoulder which kept the right person since July 7.
Another Wheeler journey to the mound could have its final appearance marked in Queens.
Taking out the final year of his contract, Wheeler knows that he is a strong candidate to deal with before the 31 July trade deadline, but left a second summer just to the 29-year-old human rumors that no one suffers from a well known league team.
“Last year was what it meant, so I try to go out there and win here and focus on that,” Wheeler said Tuesday before the Mets met Padres, 5-2. “I'm here now, so I'm worried about it.”
There would be no similar concern to his character.
“It's quite good,” said Mickey Callaway. “The only thing about Zack is that it doesn't worry about too much. He is a nice man. He loves to go out there and park and he is very much focused on that fifth day. And I don't think the rest makes a mistake because he knows he can't control it. We're talking to him about it and he understands the story, he realizes it's out of control, and he wants to go out there and be great. ”
But this year was not very tasty.
Coming with the best career season, in which it went from 12 to 7 with 3.31 ERA and WHIP 1.12, Wheeler is between 6-6 and 4.69 ERA at present, having 16 worst homers in one season to let through 19 start.
In the run out of Wheeler's last, he allowed six bicycles and eight hits in a loss for the Phillies, but the right man – who is expected to return on Friday against Pirate – said that his shoulder discomfort “completely gone,” and he was optimistic about his next trip after spending a live battling exercise against Juan Lagares, Tomas Nido and Adeiny Hecchavarria.
“I am confident that I will get my next start,” said Wheeler. “Everything is good. I just wanted to face people who were hitting live before I went back in a game. Now that I did that, I think I'm ready to go back there. … Everything went fine. I wore every pitch.
“I am happy with where we are now, and the progress we have made and feel 100 per cent, so I'm ready to go.”
Wheeler has long been concerned by Health after two full seasons (2015-16) after Tommy John's operation, and Callaway was not ready to officially confirm his return date.
“I think we have to see how it bounces back, but it looked good,” said Callaway. “The stuff was coming out well. The order was there. It seemed that the break in his fields was in line with what you would like to see, and more importantly he said that he felt good as he was going. So we will see how it feels when it comes in (Wednesday) and will make a decision from it. ”
“We have choices. We can paste it at any time, so I don't think it's as important to wait to see how it bounces back from this. ”
Callaway said Wheeler was unlikely to spend more than 85 pitches in the next start. Soon, we will know whether it will be the ultimate start for the Mets.
