2 reasons why Wheeler will NEVER make it as MN twin:
1 - Too Smart. Once the FO learns about the law degree he will be shipped off first chance they get
2 - Doesn't Call Matt Koch "Matty"

Makes me wonder if Jason Wheeler could learn the same kind of three-finger changeup grip that Alex Meyer is now enjoying. With Wheeler's assortment of modified fastballs, a sudden drop of 8mph would really have hitters off balance.

Great article as usual Seth. This guy looks like he has a plan for both his baseball and post-baseball career. Good for him. Hope he gets his promotion to New Britain in the next month or so.

Wheeler certainly has it together, but he's also a pretty good pitcher. Let's not forget that.
