Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Zack Wheeler was scratched from his upcoming debut in an axle series Saturday following an unfortunate injury during an everyday incident against the Miami Marlins.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia’s prized $ 118 million pitcher hit his fingers on Wednesday while dislodging his pants.

“You can’t make it,” Phillies manager Joe Girardi told reporters, adding that the finger was very “bad”.
Girdhari said Wheeler cannot pitch at least until Monday at the earliest.
Aaron Nola is expected to pitch on Friday and Spencer Howard will replace Wheeler on Saturday.
The Braves’ race is estimated to have imposed a maximum of I.L.
The Phillies signed Wheeler offshore from the New York Mets. He has not given up this season and has recorded a 2.47 ERA in eight matches. He has dismissed 36 batsmen.
Last season, he hit 195 in 31 strikes – the best season of his career.
Philadelphia is currently 21–19 and just three games behind the Atlanta Braves for the National League East lead. The Marlins sit only one game behind Philadelphia in the win column and 3.5 games behind the Braves for first place.
