Action Footage: Zack Wheeler Strikes Out Chad Tracy

Talented Mets right-handed prospect Zack Wheeler is pitching today (Saturday) against the Nationals in a spring training game. After four batters, he’s walked one and struck out two, including an inning-ending strikeout against Washington’s Chady Tracy — action footage of which strikeout was captured by the author.

Pitch No. 1: A fastball at 96 mph (although maybe 98 mph, it’s hard to make out) taken for strike one.

Pitch No. 2: Wheeler’s only changeup of the inning, so far as the author could tell, swung at for strike two.

Pitch No. 3: A fastball on the inside corner — again at what looks like 96 mph — for a swinging strike three.
