Zack Wheeler Signs 5-Year Deal with Phillies Worth Over $100 Million

Zack Wheeler

Zack Wheeler has signed a large contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports. He will be making over $100 million from this contract. The Phillies finished 17th in ERA with a team earned run average of 4.53. A pitcher like Zack Wheeler has the potential to help lower that.

After parts of five seasons with the Mets, Zack Wheeler has a career ERA of 3.77 in the MLB. He will be staying in the NL East, which can help him if he faces some of the same hitters and has had success against them. For example, according to Baseball-Reference, Marlins hitters at the time of writing have a slash line of .173/.180/.273 against Wheeler. The 29-year-old right-hander can use this as a way to adjust to his new club. However, the Marlins did add Jesus Aguilar and Jonathan Villar, which could put up some numbers for Miami this coming season.
