Everyone knows about how well Zack Wheeler pitched this year. What maybe you don’t know is that he was one of the better hitting pitchers around, too. The Mets had seven pitchers amass at least 10 PA and Wheeler’s .425 OPS was the top mark on the staff, as he edged out Steven Matz by .001 for the mythical crown. He also led the team’s pitchers with 4 R and his 4 RBIs were one behind Jacob deGrom for the lead.
Among all MLB pitchers with at least 40 PA, Wheeler ranked 11th in OPS.
