News: Wheeler struck out seven and walked three while giving up three runs -- two earned -- on four hits over seven innings in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday. Impact: It was a very nice showing for Wheeler, who met the criteria for a quality start, but took the loss because Julio Teheran simply outperformed him. Wednesday's start was the 11th straight outing that Wheeler held the opposition to three or fewer runs. He'll look to continue that streak in a two-start week with road starts against the Marlins on Monday and the Reds on September 7.(RotoWire, )

News: Wheeler fanned three and walked three while holding the A's to four runs -- two earned -- on four hits over 5.2 innings to pick up his ninth win of the season Wednesday. Impact: Despite failing to get through six innings, Wheeler needed 103 pitches to record 14 outs. Command was an issue for him Wednesday, as he issued the three walks and threw just 12 first-pitch strikes over 25 batters faced. Most likely, Wheeler's next start will be made at home against Atlanta early next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Wheeler struck out 10 Cubs over 6.2 innings to get the win on Friday night. He allowed two runs on four hits and four walks. Impact: Wheeler's command still is a problem - besides the four walks he also hit a batter, and threw a career-high 120 pitches to get through his 6.2 innings. "Obviously everybody knows my pitch count is always high," Wheeler said. "I always try to pitch to contact early, but sometimes I catch myself trying to do too much sequence-wise or command-wise. So sometimes you'll catch yourself with a lot of pitches at the beginning of the game, so you try to pitch a little more to the outer and inner thirds instead of just the corner."(RotoWire, )
