Astros putting in work to acquire Zack Wheeler

The Houston Astros are working hard to get their hands on Mets starter Zack Wheeler. Ken Rosenthal is reporting that even though Wheeler would fit in well into that Astros rotation, a deal is not close to being finalized.

Rosenthal added that the Tampa Bay Rays and the Oakland Athletics remain interested, as well. However, rival sources expect the Astros to close the deal.

Wheeler is 7-6 with a 4.71 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP and has struck out 137 batters in 124.1 innings pitched.
