Banter Breakdown: Zack Wheeler

+

A full scouting report of ZacK Wheeler's last start with the Giants before being traded to the Mets. Fastball: Wheeler can unleash a fastball. You can get best idea of his movement in the video when he was warming up in the bullpen. The fastball has excellent life, with armside run, and some late sinking action. The fastball has exceptional action when down in the zone. Numerous times he boared the fastball in on the hands of a right handed hitter, and he broke at least three bats in this outing alone. Zack established the fastball early in the game as he shattered Didi Gregorious' bat with a 97 mph fastball. I was charting behind the plate for the first three innings, and then went down the base lines for video. The three innings I charted I had Wheeler throwing about 65% fastballs. The fastball topped out at 98 (one time), he was pitching at 94-97 (hit 97 six times). The command of the fastball right now would be below average. He made some mistakes out over the plate that the Bakersfield hitters took advantage of, but there wasn't a lot of hard contact throughout the outing. Zack gave up six hits in the first three innings, five of which came on fastballs. He maintained his fastball late into his outing, pitching at 93-95 in the sixth inning. More on his slurve, cutter, change and body & delivery at BB. Enjoy.
