Manager Jerry Gonzalez will sign LHP Anthony Siese formerly with the Colorado Rockies minor league system to the Wild’s starting rotation.
The move comes after an (0-5) start in which no starter went more then 5 innings except 1 and allowing 39 runs with 46 hits and 29 walks in just 34 innings pitched.
“At this level, those kind of numbers are unacceptable. I have to make some decisions and adding Siese to the rotation at the first transaction date is whats best for the team.” – Jerry Gonzalez
Gonzalez hasn’t been very happy with his teams overall pitching until today when Garret Baker tossed 7 great innings allowing 1 earned run. But errors and no hitting hurt the Wild! Gonzalez still has confidence in his guys and is looking for his guys to bounce back this series and get things rolling in the right direction.
With the addition of Siese, The Wild will have Jaunich, Anzmann, Siese, Harper and Baker in the starting rotation moving Jeremy Charles to the bullpen to join Ryan Oglesby, Gregory Jasek and Tony McClendon.
