When the Texas Rangers traded Leonys Martin to the division rival Seattle Mariners over the winter for 32-year old righty reliever Tom Wilhelmsen, they thought they were getting a late game reliever to help the pen. He pitched in 53 games (0 starts) for the Mariners last year and he was 2-2 with a 3.19 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. So on the surface, the deal made a lot of sense for the Rangers, but it just hasn’t worked out so far this year. Wilhelmsen has pitched in 5 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 22.50 ERA and a 3.75 WHIP. He has given up 12 hits (4 homers), 10 runs (all earned), walked 3 batters and he has hit one batter in only 4 innings pitched this year. The Rangers are going to have to cut ties with Wilhelmsen if this continues much longer.
