Texas recalled starter JUAN DOMINGUEZ from AAA and probably optioned pitcher C.J. WILSON to AA.

Dominguez is in New York to start Staurday's game. Haven't heard who Texas sent down, but I can't imagine anyone other than Wilson.

Update: My imagination has run away with me. Erasmo Ramirez makes the lonely drive back to Oklahoma and Wilson stays.

So... the bullpen is a wreck. Ramirez has an ERA of 5.40 and hasn't pitched in two days. Wilson threw 62 pitches last night and has an ERA of just under 9.00 (though he threw well last night). Wilson probably can't pitch for at least two days. Regardless, Texas kept Wilson and dumped Ramirez.

This must be one of those Zen riddles I'm not meant to understand.

Update 2: Wilson will start next Thursday in Cleveland. I wish him the best.
