Dan Cortes Optioned

Honestly, I’m a bit disappointed by this decision. I had hoped they would move Tom Wilhelmsen but they seem determined to use Wilhelmsen in the big leagues. I don’t know if it’s because of his age or what it is. But his command and control has been lousey and despite having some above average major league quality pitches he just isn’t consistent. He needs more time to work on them and to do it in a good environment.

The only good side of this is that it should give Cortes a chance to actually pitch. You know instead of sitting down in the pen goofing off for 9 innings.

    I’d like to see them try Wilhelmsen more often, or send him to Tacoma to get some work in. I guess they will send him down when Kelley comes back. Am disappointed in League, he’s done a lot of damage in just a few days. I’d go with Wright or Pauley for a few days myself.
