Look the projections said he would pitch again, and he did. Amazingly the computers actually did a good job projecting the amount Wheeler would actually pitch although they were way off as Wheeler struggled a lot before he got knocked out for the season. ZiPS and Rotowire were the closest regarding stats and ZiPS and MLB.com were the closest to actual total amount of innings.
