Former Padres Prospect Wynn Pelzer Released by Baltimore Orioles


Baltimore Orioles beat writer, Brittany Ghiroli, reports on twitter that former Padres prospect, Wynn Pelzer, has officially been released by the Orioles.

I remember a time, not so long ago, when Pelzer and Cory Luebke where both hailed as the Padres’ best pitching prospects. We know what has become of Luebke, but it’s kind of sad that Pelzer never panned out. I will admit, I was a Pelzer fan- although I was happy when the Padres traded him for Miguel Tejada in 2010.

I don’t know if there is any room for Pelzer in the Padres’ farm system, but I’d like to see the Padres sign Pelzer and give him one last chance in the organization where he was first successful.
