Zack Wheeler
News 
 Kenley Jansen has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring, and has struck out six. Jansen is throwing fewer cutters this spring and is instead focusing on mixing his fastball and slider.
Connor Rooney
Mon, Mar 2nd
Phillies starter Zack Wheeler allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out six over four innings in Tuesday's win over the Minnesota Twins.
Mike Maher
Tue, Mar 10th
 Kenley Jansen made his second spring outing while continuing to look impressive with increased velocity. Jansen was sitting 93 MPH and touched 94 MPH. His velocity has dipped over the past two seasons which resulted in a meager 14.5% HR/FB.
Matthew Davis
Wed, Feb 26th
Phillies starter Zack Wheeler allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two over 2 1/3 innings in Thursday's Spring Training outing against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Mike Maher
Thu, Mar 5th
  Phillies pitcher Zack Wheeler allowed two earned runs on one hit and one walk while striking out two over two innings in his Spring debut with his new team on Saturday. Both runs came on a two-run homer off the bat of Toronto’s Danny Jansen.

Notes 
 It feels like we've seen the last of Jansen as an elite closer, as continued velocity declines and struggles with control led to his worst season as a professional. His overall numbers from 2019, other than his bloated ERA, remain fine, but this is not the Jansen that was once the top reliever taken in fantasy circles. It seems clear that Dave Roberts lost a little faith in Jansen last year and with a World Series or bust mentality, don't expect the leash to be overly long. Still, beggars can't be choosers with closer, and Jansen's contract and lengthy pedigree still keep him as a borderline top-10 reliever.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Wheeler's numbers declined from his breakout 2018 season but, overall, there were plenty of gains. He upped his strikeout rate and velocity, cut his walk rate, and set a career high in innings. Now with the Phillies, he'll see a downgrade in park, but because he's been able to avoid home runs over the last two seasons, the move should not have too much of an impact. Wheeler probably won't develop into a fantasy ace, but he's, at worst, a strong third fantasy starter.
