Mets News: Wheeler working on Not to Tip his Pitches

Mets News:

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.

Zach Wheeler's three nasty pitches

In Zach Wheeler's Mets Debut, he used four different pitches...but three of them seem to be his primary pitches.. He used his fastball 70% of the time, while using his slider 17%, and curve 12%... His changeup was only used 2%.

Carson Cistulli of Fangraphs outlines his three primary nasty pitches:

Wheeler’s fastball was his most effective pitch against Atlanta. Of the 14 swinging strikes generated by Wheeler on Tuesday, 12 of those were by way of the fastball. Here’s one of them, to Brian McCann for a strikeout in the second inning.

Wheeler’s other two swinging strikes were recorded by way of the slider. Here’s one of those — in this case, one with less than horizontal movement than one might expect — to Dan Uggla for a strikeout in the sixth inning.

 Wheeler’s curveball wasn’t particularly helpful for him on Tuesday — or, at least not in terms of results. He threw just four of his 12 curves for strikes — three called and one fly ball for an out. Here’s one of those called strikes, from the same Dan Uggla at-bat as above
