Zack Wheeler, RH (6-5, 4.51, 115 Ks) - New York Mets

YANKEES: Paxton will get another crack at the Mets after he was thumped for six runs and seven hits over 2 2/3 innings in his Subway Series debut on June 11. He has pitched to a 6.08 ERA in six starts since returning from the injured list on May 29.

METS: The Mets will push Wheeler forward in the rotation to face the Yankees on regular rest. He allowed nine runs (five earned) in a loss at Yankee Stadium earlier this season, bloating his career ERA to 10.00 against the Mets’ interborough rivals.
