Mystery! Solved

Sure enough:

Jack Wilson placed on DL as expected, Tui recalled

Jack's stay on the DL will be retroactive to May 6th, meaning he'll be eligible to return against San Diego on May 21st. This is all made possible by the fact that Josh Wilson's playing like a big boy. Josh won't keep slugging .650, or .500, or .400, but then it's not like Jack has looked at his best in the early going, so the team doesn't lose a whole lot. And Tui will provide some flexibility in the meantime, kind of, in that he isn't literally a tree stump. I don't think a Major League Baseball team would call up a player who is literally a tree stump. Though, why a tree stump would have made it into an organization in the first place is a wonder indeed.
