Overall, Wheeler is 8-6 with a 4.45 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, to go alongside 144 strikeouts in 131.1 innings pitched. However, Wheeler has been better in his last seven games as he’s been pitching to a 3.59 ERA over 42.2 innings while also picking up three wins.

The Miami Marlins will send rookie Jordan Yamamoto to the hill to try and tame the Mets as they square off for the first time in his career. Yamamoto is 4-2 with a 3.94 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP as well as accruing 49 strikeouts in 48 innings pitched. However, Yamamoto hasn’t been pitching as well as of late, the right hander is 2-2 with an ERA of 5.56 over his last seven games.
