Left-handed pitcher Wesley Wright, the Grady native, was optioned to the minor leagues today by the Houston Astros. He had a 9.00 ERA in eight spring innings.
Two former Biscuits also moved out of major league camps. Outfielder Fernando Perez was optioned to the minors by the Chicago Cubs. Catcher Robinson Cancel was reassigned to the minors by the Astros.
Auburn's Gabe Gross was reassigned to Seattle's minor leagues Wednesday.
(What's the difference in being "optioned" and "reassigned"? Optioned means the player is on the 40-man roster.)
