1. Zack Wheeler RHP
6-3, 180 - Dallas, Ga. - Drafted 1st round 2009 by San Francisco
2010 - A-ball - 3-3, 3.99, 58.2-IP, 70-K
8-7-11: - Stock Up – Wheeler passed his latest test with flying colors: 6.0-IP, 4-H, 0-R, 7-K, 0-BB. He now has 102-K in 92.0 innings and it’s becoming obvious that he will easily move on the Binghamton at the beginning of next season. What a great trade.
10-15-11: - I moved Wheeler ahead of Matt Harvey… he simply is the top prospect right now.
1-27-12 – The Mets have pretty much confirmed that Wheeler will begin the 2012 season in Binghamton, though cold weather may delay that for a few weeks.
3-8-12 - • Wheeler pitched in an intra-squad game on Thursday morning and Mets coaches were “highly impressed” with everything dished up. He was basically unhittable including shattering a bat with one of his fastballs
4-19-12 – It’s becoming quite obvious that Wheeler is the steal of a deal. He looks to have that rare SP1 talent every club desires. Remember, there are only 30 SP1s in the world and at least five of them at all times should be SP2s… meaning, there are 7,000,000,000 in the world and 25 pitch like this guy.
