Wheeler struggled to start the 2011 season, posting an 11.32 ERA with four homers allowed in just 10-1/3 innings through May 4, but following a stint on the DL, returned to be one of Boston's very best relievers the rest of the way, with an ERA of 2.54, 7.1 strikeouts per nine against just 1.6 walks per nine, and just 0.7 homers allowed.

Marc Normandin, of Over the Monster, on Wheeler. Much more through the link—Indians might've stolen one here. Normandin also reminded me, via Twitter, that Boston can petition for comp pick if Wheeler makes the Opening Day roster.
