Former Fresno State pitcher Justin Wilson returned to minors by Pittsburgh
Former Fresno State star Justin Wilson was optioned back to the minor leagues Tuesday afternoon by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pirates called up the left-handed pitcher Monday and he made his major league debut that night at San Diego, striking out the side in his only inning in a relief appearance.
Wilson, who prepped at Buchanan High in Clovis, will rejoin the Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate in Indianapolis. He is a member of the Pirates’ 40-man roster and will be eligible to join the team Sept. 1 when major league rosters expand.
