Quote of the day from yesterday's Grapefruit League action comes from Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, regarding New York Mets pitching prospect Zack Wheeler:

"He's got some good stuff, definitely. He's exciting to watch, too. They've got [Matt] Harvey and him, two young guys that can really pitch and throw hard and have pretty good secondary stuff. It was good to face a guy like that today."---Bryce Harper

I love that Harper refers to Wheeler and Matt Harvey as "young guys." Wheeler is two years older than Harper, Harvey three.

In any event, Wheeler looked great in his two-inning stint with the Mets, fanning two with a walk and a hit. He's still likely to open the year in Triple-A, but he's a good bet to get a trial in the second half, much as Harvey did last year.
