NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Tom Wilhelmsen’s move to AAA Tacoma. At times appearing to still have the magic from 2012, Wilhelmsen, for the most part, has been a major disappointment in 2013. Currently boasting a 4.37 ERA in 47 appearances this year, he just doesn’t have the look/feel of a dominating closer anymore. Whether or not this has to do with the league adjusting to his style of pitching remains to be seen, but the biggest difference between 2012 and 2013 has been his command. Read on for more analysis on the move.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his three players from the Tacoma Rainiers who he thinks will make an appearance for the Mariners before the end of the year. With plenty of young position players already playing for Seattle, Chris has three pitchers getting the call-up, with Danny Hultzen and James Paxton, two of “the big three”, making their debuts later this season.
