C.J. Wilson not always safe to start


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/23/2014) For Fantasy Week 13 (June 23-29), C.J. Wilson was a relatively late addition to the cohort of two-start pitchers, and having that distinction makes him a must-start. Then again, Wilson is already starting in 84 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com, so not many owners will have to make the effort to get him off their bench.

That's fine for this week, as Wilson will toil in a pair of ballparks (Angel Stadium and Kauffman Stadium) that are inhospitable to home runs. He's not a flyball pitcher, so there's no obvious reason to worry about where Wilson is pitching, but there are two trends that make his venues relevant. First, as I noted in this week's Fantasy First Pitch column, Wilson has not pitched with much control this season, as he has thrown only 59 percent of his pitches for strikes. By putting himself at risk for too many walks and making bad pitches when behind in the count, Wilson could give up home runs when he can least afford to.

Second, even though he sports a 57 percent ground ball rate, he's not been especially good at preventing home runs away from Angel Stadium. Over his two-and-a-half years with the Angels, he has allowed 0.9 home runs per nine innings on the road as opposed 0.6 at home. Wilson has favorable strand (77 percent, per FanGraphs.com) and BABIP (.268) rates in away games this season, so his 4.28 road ERA isn't the product of bad luck.

With a low overall ERA and WHIP and a healthy strikeout rate, Wilson might look like an automatic start every week in most leagues, but he could be worth sitting when he travels to hitter-friendly venues.


C.J. Wilson fine for seven innings in Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson has been trading strong performances with mediocre ones all season. He came up with a gem Thursday in Cleveland, but a lack of hitting from his teammates resulted in a no-decision.

Wilson yielded just one run on three hits in seven innings with four walks and six strikeouts. He lowered his ERA on the year to 3.34 in the process.

He will seek to maintain his momentum Tuesday against Minnesota.


Angels, Indians rained out Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) The Angels and Indians had their game Wednesday postponed due to inclement weather in the area. At this point, it is not clear when the game will be made up.

C.J. Wilson Ks eight in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Wilson owns a 3.50 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP through 14 starts (92 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at Cleveland.

C.J. Wilson goes seven strong in win over White Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson turned in a dominant outing on Sunday against the White Sox, leading his team to a 4-2 win and improved to 7-5 on the year. The right-hander permitted one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over 7 1/3 innings of work.

Over his last three starts covering 17 2/3 innings, Wilson has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 3.32 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP in 13 starts (86 2/3 innings). He will seek his eighth win of the season Saturday at Atlanta.

C.J. Wilson dealing with flu


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson has been battling the flu for a few days and was notably under the weather after Tuesday's loss, MLB.com reports.

Wilson couldn't complete the third inning Tuesday, getting yanked after giving up five earned runs on six hits and five walks in 2 2/3 innings to take a loss, but it sounds like his illness played a part in his poor performance. Wilson is slated to face the White Sox Sunday.
