Reports are rampant that in any moment the Mets may announce the trade of Carlos Beltran for SF Giants prospect Zack Wheeler. While we wait for confirmation if indeed that is the case here is a deeper look at Zack Wheeler.
Wheeler was the 2009 MLB Draft 6th overall draft pick by the San Francisco Giants. He has a fastball that when drafted was said to exceed 95mph and a curveball that was projected to be an above-average pitch.
At the start of the year Baseball America ranked Wheeler as the #2 prospect in the Giants organization and the #1 pitching prospect in their organization.
In February Baseball America ranked Wheeler as the 55th best prospect in all of MLB. Baseball America’s most recent mid season top 50 prospect list released this July had wheeler move up to 35th best prospect in all of MLB.
This season this is what Wheeler was doing in Class A Ball for the San Jose Giants.
