Fly On, Little Wing

Texas has lost pitcher Ryan Wing on waivers to his former employer, the Chicago White Sox. Wing had a 6.93 ERA, 36 walks and 33 strikeouts in eleven starts plus a relief appearance for high-A Bakersfield. The 23-year-old was the 71st pick of the 2001 draft and is now a proud member of the Winston-Salem Warthogs.

Performance issues aside, I don't know what compelled Texas to waive him now. By my count, the Rangers had only 37 players on the 40-man roster and could free additional space by placing Frank Francisco or Greg Colbrunn on the 60-day DL.
