WHEELER: The most impressive aspect of Wheeler's win last time out in Arizona was that he did not walk a batter for the first time this season. Wheeler entered that game with the third-highest walk rate in baseball (min. 50 innings).
ROSS: Ross continues to pitch well since rejoining the rotation. He's 3-1 with a 1.33 ERA in his Past four starts, with all three victories coming on the road. He allowed one run in seven innings against the Reds his last time out.
NIESE: In his first start back from a nearly two-month trip to the disabled list with a partially torn left rotator cuff, Niese allowed four runs to the D-backs in six innings. It was his first outing since June 20 in Atlanta.
KENNEDY: Kennedy was very good last time out against the Reds, as he opened his second start with the Padres with seven scoreless innings. He allowed a two-run home run in the eighth and was left without a decision.
MEJIA: Though Mejia delivered a quality start last time out in Los Angeles, his line might have looked sharper had Daniel Murphy made two borderline defensive plays behind him. As it was, Mejia allowed three runs in six innings.
VOLQUEZ: Volquez allowed eight runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings his last time out against the Rockies. He's allowed four or more earned runs in 11 of his 25 starts this season. Opponents have an .804 OPS against him in 2013.
HARVEY: Harvey's most recent start was one of his worst of the season, which of course is a relative phrase. The young ace gave up four runs in six innings to the streaking Dodgers, striking out a season-low three.
STULTS: Stults struggled in his last start against the Rockies, allowing five runs on 11 hits with three walks in 4 2/3 innings. He's allowed a combined 37 hits in his last four starts and hasn't won since July 14.

His 1st two outings were from relief and today he destroyed the Astros like everyone else. Lets see more. We have enough pitching right now anyway so I'm not upset we passed on him.
He also allowed only 2 ER vs Toronto in 6 innings which are the 2 runs he has allowed all year.
I would of taken Gray over Nimmo 100 times over 100 times regardless of how deep the Mets pitching is because in the end that does not matter because as mention a billion times you can use him as a trade chip to get a guy that will fill a hole now.
