An excerpt from their comment about Wheeler:
The EL is a long way from the big leagues, granted, but one couldn't ask for much more from Wheeler than he's shown thus far. He's throwing strikes with two plus pitches and showing flashes with his third and fourth offerings.They promise more on Tapia later.
Here are the basics:
He's 6'4" with long arms that generate tremendous whip action. He has been sitting 95-98 mph with a sinking fastball that generates swings and misses and ground ball outs. He was throwing strikes with his slider and change-up last Saturday and his pitching coach believes both off-speed pitches have a chance to be plus offerings.
Also, Tapia's throwing tonight for Savannah.
