Zack Wheeler allows six runs in loss to Nationals Thursday

Mets starter Zack Wheeler allowed six earned runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings in a loss to the Washington Nationals on Thursday. The loss drops him to 3-3 on the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Wheeler has been up and down through the first month and a half of the season as he had thrown quality starts in five of his six previous outings but had also allowed seven earned runs in a start prior to that stretch. While his ERA is 4.85, his FIP is almost a full two runs lower at 2.87, and he has 64 strikeouts in 55 2/3 innings. He could be an attractive buy-low candidate for fantasy owners right now, and his next start is scheduled to come against this same Nationals squad at home.
