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.

Zack Wheeler (paternity) might not be available for Opening Day

Phillies manager Joe Girardi says there is a chance Zack Wheeler (paternity) might not be available for the start of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Wheeler's wife is scheduled to give birth right around Opening Day, so it is completely up in the air whether or not he'll be with the team then. Girardi also noted that the Phillies could be without Aaron Nola as well, who was placed on the COVID-19 IL last week.
