Former Royal prospect Dan Cortes has not excelled since being traded to the Mariner organization. In six starts with AA West Tennessee, Cortes has posted a 6.46 ERA in 30.2 IP. He's striking guys out -- 29 Ks -- but also walking dudes constantly (25) and allowing a hit an inning (29). Allowing homers, 3, has also been a mild problem.
So there's your Dan Cortes update.
