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
Lions placed CB Alex Carter on injured reserve.
It is now officially a lost season for the rookie. He was placed on short-term IR to begin the season, and is now done for the year. He has no stats, and while he says he is healthy, the fact remains that he is too far behind after missing the first nine weeks of the season with the IR/Designated to Return status to open the season.

Redskins are working out CB AL Louis-Jean on Tuesday.
He played in nine games with the Bears in 2014, but was released this season out of training camp, having failed to impress the new coaching regime in Chicago. He has decent size at 6'1" for a cornerback, and also flashes good speed for coverage. At present, you do not need to put him on your IDP radar, unless he is signed to the 53-man roster instead of the practice squad. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
