Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson looking for consistency with changeup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson, who returned to the mound Sunday, is pushing to throw a more consistent changeup in 2014, reports MLB.com.
"If you throw 20 percent changeups, what happens to your elbow? Nothing," Wilson said. "I can go out there and try to throw all sliders, but what's that going to do to my elbow? I don't know; I don't want to find out. But it's probably not good. Guys that are serial cutter-ists as starters and throw a ton of sliders, and throw the ball as hard as they can, they have shorter life spans."
Wilson used the changeup to get out of a few jams Sunday.
"It bailed me out of a couple jams, got me a couple swing-throughs," said Wilson, who also struck out two in a 64-pitch outing. "It's a big pitch."

Report: Angels SP C.J. Wilson scratched Tuesday due to illness
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson was a late scratch for Tuesday's spring game, likely due to an illness, according to the Los Angeles Times. Drew Rucinski will start in his place. It's the second time this spring that Wilson has been scratched. He missed his previous start with a left knee injury.
"The concern would be that he would go out there and pitch [Tuesday] and be sick," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "We are going to make sure we get clearance from the medical staff as to when he can pitch. Sometimes, it's a 24-hour thing and he'll be fine. We'll just have to wait and see."
Wilson has allowed one unearned run in three innings of work in Cactus League play.
|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.
