Outfielder Mike Wilson has been promoted to the Rainiers, and he is in the lineup today.
Wilson finished the 2009 season with Tacoma and was with the team during the playoffs. Wilson opened this season at Class-AA West Tennessee, where he hit .292 with 8 home runs and 22 RBI while posting a .402 on-base percentage.
The Rainiers have taken Matt Tuiasosopo off the roster, and I have heard that he is not currently in Nashville. A rather grumpy Daren Brown didn’t want to talk about it, just saying “he’s not here.”
Also of note, former UW catcher Ben Johnson is starting for Nashville this morning. First pitch at 9:05 am!
