Wilhelm did start games in the minors.  He didn't start playing professional ball until age 26, two years after the war ended.

He reached the majors in the year he turned 30.  He then proceeded to pitch in 361 games, every single one in relief.  He made his first start in 1958, the year he turned 36.

The then proceeded to pitch 709 more games before retirement.  93.67 percent of those being in relief.
