Zack Wheeler torched Atlanta and will next try to become a Monster of the Midway.

The mission against the White Sox for the highly touted Mets right-hander tonight at U.S. Cellular Field is simple: Control his pitches better while trying to duplicate the overall success he had in his major league debut against the Braves last Tuesday.

“I walked a lot of people last time,” said Wheeler, who finished with four hits allowed, five walks and seven strikeouts over six shutout innings and was the winning pitcher in the nightcap of a doubleheader.

But Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen disputed the notion that control was a major issue for Wheeler in his debut.

“When you throw six shutout innings in Atlanta, that’s pretty damn good,” Warthen said. “At that particular time he had B.J. Upton hitting behind [Freddie] Freeman, and Freeman was swinging the bat extremely well, so we didn’t care whether we walked him.

“So there was a couple of the walks that were almost intentional, so now we’re down to really three walks that truly happened against him throwing poor pitches.”

It’s been a wild week for the 23-year-old Wheeler, who made his major league debut less than an hour from where he grew up in Dallas, Ga.

Following the game came a reassignment to Triple-A Las Vegas — Wheeler was the 26th man on the roster, as afforded by the doubleheader — allowing the Mets to keep another player for the past five games. Wheeler joined his 51s teammates in Tucson, Ariz., where he threw a side session on Friday. Then came a flight Sunday to join the Mets in the Windy City. The team will make a roster move before tonight’s game to absorb Wheeler.

“It’s just like any other start, it’s no big deal,” Wheeler said, referring to the logistics of the last week. “I sort of got a heads-up on this a while back, so it really wasn’t an issue.”
