Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson knocked around in start Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson surrendered seven runs, six earned, on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings of work Sunday in Los Angeles' 9-2 loss to the Royals.
Things got rough for Wilson in the second when he gave up three consecutive singles, leading to a run. Then, after a fielder's choice, another run came through on a fielding error by David Freese. Alcides Escobar then doubled home two more runs, all coming with no outs.
"I don't think he threw the ball that poorly today," manager Mike Scioscia said to MLB.com. "C.J. wasn't able to contain some damage. A play [made] here or there, and it might've been a better result for him."
Wilson, who added four strikeouts to his totals, pushed his ERA to 3.95 on the year. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Astros.
C.J. Wilson pitches eight shutout innings for Angels
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) C.J. Wilson pitched eight shutout innings in the Angels' 2-0 win over the Mariners, Tuesday.
Wilson allowed just two hits and walked one, striking out two. Wilson threw 96 pitches, 63 for strikes.
Wilson retired the last 17 batters he faced, and he threw first-pitch strikes to 19 of the 27 batters he faced. His next start will be Sunday, at home against the Royals and Yordano Ventura.
"That was a masterpiece," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com.
Angels tab Weaver, Wilson, Shoemaker for first series
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson will follow ace Jered Weaver and pitch the second game of the season, while Matt Shoemaker will take the mound for the third game of the season, the team announced Thursday.
Weaver, Wilson and Shoemaker will be facing the Mariners in order next week, starting Monday. The Angels are expected to use a four-man rotation initially, leaving Hector Santiago as the probable starter for Friday's home opener against the Royals.
Angels' Mike Scioscia expects 'a big year' from C.J. Wilson
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday he's expecting a big rebound season from pitcher C.J. Wilson, MLB.com reports.
"I think he's throwing the ball as well as I've seen him throw it, which brings you back to either the start of last year or a couple years ago," Scioscia said. "I think that a lot of the second-half issues -- from the health to consistency to release point -- have been resolved. I look for a big year from C.J."
Wilson had posted no worse than a 3.83 ERA in his first four seasons working as a starting pitcher after a career in his bullpen but struggled in 2014, going 13-10 with a 4.51 ERA and 151:85 K:BB ratio in 175 2/3 innings. He's allowed eight runs (three earned) in 11 2/3 innings this spring while striking out seven and walking six.
Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney likely to be sent to Triple-A
|(3/29/15) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has indicated that pitcher Andrew Heaney will begin the season in Triple-A, according to MLB.com.|
The team's top pitching prospect, Heaney has allowed 13 earned runs in 14.0 innings (8.36 ERA) in four starts this spring.
The Angels are expected to open the season with a four-man rotation that will included Jered Weaver, Matt Shoemaker, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago.
Starter Garrett Richards is recovering from knee surgery.
"One of the things is, a lot of guys who are playing well, it might come down to what the fit is on the team. So there's a couple different ways," Scioscia said. "There's some things that might happen that might affect somebody's standing on the team in a positive or negative way, just to get the whole roster to be as deep as you can."
|2014 summary: In an era when a WHIP north of 1.25 is considered high even for starting pitchers, C.J. Wilson was pushing the boundaries of competent with a 1.34 mark in his first two years with the Angels. He stopped getting away with it in 2014, his high walk rate and average home run rate finally translating to his ERA. His 4.51 mark was ninth-worst among qualifying starting pitchers, and it jumped to 5.64 from June 1 on.|
Playing time status: Of course, Wilson's greatest strength during his four-year run of Fantasy excellence was his durability, which made his fall in 2014 seem even steeper. After averaging 210.5 innings from 2010 to 2013, he fell short of 180 last year, missing most of July with a sprained ankle. His arm remains in good shape, though, with no known problems since he had bone chips removed from his elbow two years ago.
2015 outlook: Wilson's stuff didn't appear to change all that much, so 2014 may have simply been a case of everything that could go wrong going wrong for the 34-year-old left-hander. But as bad as his control is, you could argue those struggles were a long time coming. You would think the high pitch counts would take a toll on his innings after a while, which would leave him with few redeeming qualities. He'll be drafted late in most leagues because of his history, but calling him a sleeper is taking it a bit far.
