Zack Wheeler has a quality start, Mets win in ninth on dropped throw

“The two mistakes he made, he threw to me,” Bruce said after his fourth multi-homer game of the season.

Given the lead, Wheeler did not relinquish it, delivering the kind of quality start that has become increasingly rare for the Mets. By allowing just one run in seven innings, Wheeler extended a stretch in which he has eclipsed the six-inning mark in five of his last six outings, all while lowering his ERA to 3.45, the best in the rotation.

“Zack was tremendous tonight,” Collin said. “It would have been nice to get him the win but we’ll take the win any way we can get it right now.”

Zack was not a lock to make the rotation, and he’s been their best starter this year.

Mets’ Zack Wheeler provides hope after 2-year absence

Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler took the mound for the first time since Tommy John surgery almost two years ago against the Braves at Champion Stadium on Friday.

Wheeler threw 31 pitches—short of his team-imposed 35-pitch limit—and hit 94 mph on the gun. He gave up two hits and a walk and whiffed a batter.

“They say he threw the ball fine, two innings. Obviously less than the 35 pitches which was going to be max, but those were good signs,” said manager Terry Collins, who stayed at the team’s spring training home to watch Matt Harvey pitch.

Zack Wheeler dilemma requires Mets to start dreaming big now | New York Post

I feel similarly about Wheeler. The Mets are discussing Wheeler as a first-half reliever to save innings for a second-half rotation spot, or having him in the rotation from the outset, use his 120 innings and shut him down afterward. But I would try to keep him in extended spring until approximately June 1 and then have him for the most precious part of the schedule, perhaps even a Division Series Game 4 start. Again, if you are not going to dream big now, then when?
