New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom is going to win the NL Cy Young if he stays healthy, but another former Mets right-hander is in the midst of his best career season, too, and was named a first-time All-Star. That's the Philadelphia Phillies' Zack Wheeler, and he makes his final start of the first half Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs -- who enter on an 11-game losing streak. They go with journeyman Alec Mills. First pitch is 8:05 p.m. ET from Wrigley Field. Philadelphia opened a -135 money-line favorite in the latest Phillies vs. Cubs odds from William Hill Sportsbook with Chicago at +125.
The game is one of 17 on Wednesday's extra-full MLB schedule barring rainouts -- Indians-Rays are playing a doubleheader in St. Petersburg and Brewers-Mets are playing a twinbill in Queens. (See up-to-date lines for every game on our MLB odds page.)
