The Mariners demote Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A

From closer to minor leaguer: the Mariners Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A Tacoma last night.

Wilhelmsen had a meltdown against the Red Sox last Thursday, helping Boston plate six runs in the ninth inning. That was that for him with the M’s, it seems, as he had not made it into a game since. On the year he has  an 4.37 ERA and 35/26 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings with 24 saves.
