Angels' C.J. Wilson allows four runs in no-decision vs. Blue Jays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson didn't factor into the decision Monday, giving up four earned runs on 10 hits and two walks in five innings while striking out three in his team's 10-6 loss to the Blue Jays.
Wilson gave up more than two runs for the first time in six starts on Monday, and he limited the damage to one poor inning, as the Blue Jays plated four runners in the second inning to take a 4-0 lead. The Angels were able to storm back and take the lead in the top of the sixth but then let the lead slip away in the bottom half of the inning.
"I made enough bad pitches to put myself in some bad situations against a good-hitting team," Wilson said to Orange County Register. "If I made the pitches I wanted to make, I got guys out, but I was just missing enough to give the guys the chance to put the barrel on it."
Wilson owns a 3.06 ERA and 36:13 K:BB ratio in 53 innings. He's lined up to square off with the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday.
C.J. Wilson gives Angels eight solid innings in win over Rockies
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson went eight innings strong to pick up his second win of the season Tuesday night against the Rockies.
Wilson (2-2) permitted a sacrifice fly in the third and a run-scoring double to Corey Dickerson in the fourth. He was charged with two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six over eight innings of a 5-2 victory. Of his 111 pitches, 70 were strikes.
"I'm thankful all the work is paying off. It's not the easiest thing in the world to reverse trends," Wilson said, per the MLB.com.
Wilson will look to climb over .500 on Monday against Toronto. He is 2-1 with a 4.14 ERA over his last six career starts against the Blue Jays.
Angels P C.J. Wilson earns quality start in Wednesday's game
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson failed to earn a win during Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Mariners, but he did receive a quality start for his effort.
Wilson tossed seven solid innings of work after giving up two runs on seven hits. He also struck out four batters and walked none. His lone mistake was a two-run home run to Kyle Seager in the fourth inning. He lowered his ERA to 2.70.
Wilson was in line for the win during the game, but closer Huston Street was not able to close the game in the ninth. The Angels won the game on a walk-off double from Johnny Giavotella.
Wilson's next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Rockies.
Angels starter C.J. Wilson takes no-decision after seven strong innings
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/2/15) Angels starter C.J. Wilson allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits in seven innings Friday to take a no-decision against the Giants.
The one run Wilson allowed came via a sacrifice fly in the first inning.
Wilson's next start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Mariners.
Angels' C.J. Wilson has fluid drained from elbow
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson had fluid drained from his elbow shortly after Saturday's start, MLB.com reports.
Wilson threw his normal between-starts bullpen session Wednesday and said his elbow felt "way better than it was a week ago," when he needed to have his scheduled pushed back a few days due to soreness.
Asked about his level of concern, the pitcher said, "None. There's a formula. I know what to do. We know what the process needs to be. If we just stick to that process, we'll be fine."
Wilson has been told he can continue pitching on regular rest. He'll square off with the Giants Friday and doesn't expect being able to "reach back and throw 94 mph," which is typically his maximum effort.
"But we'll see what happens Friday, in terms of what stuff shows up," Wilson said. "I felt good today. I felt way better today than I did going into my last start, and I pitched well last start."
Wilson also indicated that removal of bone spurs in the elbow this offseason, for the third time in his career, is "inevitable."
"That's not a big deal, though," Wilson said. "It's super straight-forward. The rehab is very short, and then it works better and you go from there."
Wilson is 1-2 with a 3.12 ERA and 18:9 K:BB ratio in 26 innings over four starts.
|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.
