Wheeler had his worst outing since July 25 against the A's, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in four-plus innings Saturday against the Nationals.
Wheeler has struggled all season with five days rest, and Saturday was no exception. He now has a 5.71 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with the extra day's rest, as opposed to 2.45 and 1.11 marks, respectively, on regular rest. One note of caution moving forward is that Wheeler's next start will also come with an extra day of rest, as he's slated to pitch Friday in Atlanta.
