Wesley Wright made things difficult

Yesterday we speculated on who goes back to Round Rock when Paulino comes off the DL today. I thought it would be Wesley Wright, who was used sparingly - and by sparingly, I mean "once" - since replacing Hampton.

But of course he came in and struck out all four Royals he faced yesterday.

Coop:
“The bullpen did an outstanding job, particularly Wesley Wright. He came in and threw strikes, attacked the hitters and did a great job.”

Wright:
“I was just able to locate my fastball better than in the past. My breaking stuff wasn’t as sharp as it was in Arlington, but my fastball was good, and I was sticking with it and being aggressive.”
