Zack Wheeler's Evolving Mechanics
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Zack Wheeler had his best start of 2013 Tuesday in Reno, NV, holding the Aces to one run on five hits in 6.2 innings. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter until his 27th and final opponent of the game. He told “I was lifting my leg and rotating my shoulders and when we looked at the video, we realized I was rotating too much instead of keeping my shoulders square to the plate…. It's new right now, but I did it all last year. I had success with it, keeping my shoulders square,” he said. “But it's new right now to me, so I just have to keep them square and take it from there.”
