5 Takeaways from Zack Wheeler's Early MLB Season Returns
Associated Press
Zack Wheeler (above) has been all over the place during the 2014 season.

The New York Mets acquired Zack Wheeler in 2011, expecting him to develop into a top-of-the-rotation starter. While the 23-year-old is not producing numbers close to that goal, Wheeler has shown plenty of flashes of brilliance and is still very young. 

In just over a month, Wheeler has already had a season full of ups and downs.

Wheeler was good but inconsistent last month, finishing with a 3.99 ERA, 31 strikeouts and 11 walks in 29.1 innings. After getting shelled in his Subway Series debut for seven hits, six walks and five earned runs in 4.1 innings, Wheeler now has an ugly 1-3 record, 4.53 ERA and 1.60 WHIP. 

In May, Wheeler has allowed 15 hits, 13 walks and 10 strikeouts in 14.1 innings. 

Here are the 5 biggest takeaways from Wheeler’s early MLB season:
