Zack Wheeler has trouble putting on pants, will miss next start.
Zack Wheeler has been scratched from his start this weekend because he has a problem with his middle finger. He caught his nail yesterday putting on his pants.
This has to be made up, right?
Nope. “Can’t make this up,” Joe Girardi said.
Phillies hope he can pitch Monday. As for tomorrow, the Phillies will now go full bullpen for Game 2. Aaron Nola will pitch Game 1. Spencer Howard goes Saturday. Zach Eflin and Vinny Velasquez on Sunday.
I’ll be back recapping another terrible outing for the Phillies bullpen once I can trust myself to be around my MacBook without smashing it into a million pieces.
