Futures Game Diary: Top 4

As if the Giants didn't have enough pitching. Zack Wheeler's first fastball registers at 104mph on the radar gun in the ballpark. Seems far to fast to be real. Wheeler has mostly at 96mph with his fastball and has a hard slurve. He needs to improve his changeup (which is around 87mph, far too fast. 10mph difference from the fastball is the benchmark) and fastball command. At only 20 years of age, the 6'3" Wheeler has room to fill out. He only weighs 180 lbs. His delivery is smooth and effortless. He looks like a top of the rotation guy.
