Mets News: Wheeler working on Not to Tip his Pitches
As Zack Wheeler aims to eliminate the tipping of pitches that the Mets believe contributed to his shaky start in his last outing, Collins said the youngster doesn't have that much work to do.
Wheeler gave up four runs in a 5 1/3 innings against the White Sox on June 25.
"If he needs that much work, he shouldn't be here," Collins said.
Collins said one of the main areas of focus with Wheeler is working on a consistent delivery.
"So if there is any, perhaps, evidence of tipping his pitches, that can be taken aside by making sure that there's no difference in where his arm angle is," Collins said.
