Zack Wheeler moved to 8-8 after giving up just two runs on four hits and four walks with 10 strikeouts over 6.2 innings against the Cubs on Friday.
Wheeler is now sporting a 3.49 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 25 starts in 2014, while sitting on a solid 8.88 K/9 over 147.0 innings. Although his walks are rather high (62 BB), he has managed to allow just 11 home runs up to this point as he keeps his opposition hitting at a .244 clip. The Mets young hurler will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the A's on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
