While the major league Mets' season is all but over, down in Port St. Lucie, the Class A Mets have an ace in the making. Zack Wheeler started his fourth game in the Mets organization, and it was a doozy.
The other end of the Carlos Beltran deal pitched 5 innings of 1-run, 4 hit ball, walking 2 and striking out 9 in PSL's 3-1 loss to Bradenton.
Wheeler's ERA stands at a very good 2.70, and he has 23 strikeouts in 20 innings of work. His WHIP is a solid 1.25.
