Career 287.1 3.82 1.37 3.51 9.52
Drafted in the 15th round (453rd overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2013
The Dodgers selected Wheeler in the 22nd round of the 2010 draft out of a Texas high school, but he matriculated to Lubbock instead. He was drafted as an outfielder and spent his first year at Texas Tech almost solely as a position player, but he has gradually transitioned to the mound and worked there exclusively this spring. While he's still raw, with a 5.47 ERA and a 41-29 K-BB ratio in 51 college innings, he's an athletic lefthander with the potential for two plus pitches. Six-foot-1 and 185 pounds, Wheeler can pump his fastball up to 93 mph and has aptitude for spinning a curveball. He'll even show a changeup with promise. The quality and command of his pitches fluctuate, something that could be helped by feeding him plenty of innings in pro ball. He has the upside of a reliever in the mold of Darren Oliver.
