FWIW, Zach Wheeler got pounded by the Nat's today, giving up 2 HRs and 5 total runs in 4 2/3 innings.
Not worth looking into. Hes still very raw, so some growing pains in his first few months as a Major Leaguer are expected.
The real key to watch for is whether his control progresses over the next year, and if he stays injury free. If he can learn to keep his electric stuff in the strike zone on a regular basis, hes going to be an ace. At this point we just have to hope he becomes Edwin Jackson.
