Pirates Send Starling Marte, Justin Wilson And Others To Minors

The Pirates sent Starling Marte, Gorkys Hernandez, Kyle McPherson, Justin Wilson and Bryan Morris to the minors Sunday. None were expected to make the team. UPDATE by Charlie: The Bucs will also evidently have Wilson start, and it will be interesting to see how that decision turns out. The front office obviously has a lot more information about this than I do, and I can't object to Neal Huntington's rationale of starting in the minors being better for Wilson's development because he'll get more work that way. But from my perspective, I see Wilson as much more likely to have success in the big leagues as a reliever, given his longstanding control issues and the velocity bump he got last year after moving to the bullpen.
