Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson tagged for four runs in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings of work in Los Angeles' 8-3 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

Wilson had issues in the second inning when Mike Napoli belted a solo shot over the Green Monster. Then in the third, Wilson put runners on first and third for Mookie Betts, who singled to left center, plating another run. Wilson then surrendered a second home run to Mike Napoli, this time a two-run shot.

Wilson, now 2-3, moved his ERA to 3.36 in 59 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Tigers.


Angels' C.J. Wilson allows four runs in no-decision vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) 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
(5/13/2015) 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
(5/7/2015) 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
(5/2/2015) 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.

Angels' C.J. Wilson has fluid drained from elbow


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) 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.


Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson allows one run in no decision Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson allowed one run on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in Los Angeles' 4-1 win over the Rangers Saturday.

Wilson allowed his only run in the fourth inning when Adrian Beltre scored after Elvis Andrus stole second base.

Wilson, who added four strikeouts and three walks to his totals, ran into his only issue when he loaded the bases in the sixth inning. Wilson got Adam Rosales to pop out to short before getting pulled from the game. Reliever Vinnie Pestano came on to finish things off without allowing a run.

Wilson, who remains 1-2 on the year, now boasts a 3.12 ERA and will look to pick up another win Friday against the Giants.

Angels' C.J. Wilson throws 6 1/3 solid innings but suffers loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) Angels starting pitcher C.J. Wilson (1-2) allowed two earned runs on three hits and struck out eight in 6 1/3 innings but loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson knocked around in start Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) 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.

Angels' Mike Scioscia expects 'a big year' from C.J. Wilson


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) 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.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

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."


Angels 'most likely' to start year with four starting pitchers


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia thinks he will start the season with a short staff, reports MLB.com. The team will "most likely" start the year with four starters in the rotation and 12 pitchers overall, Scioscia said Sunday.

Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson looking for consistency with changeup


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) 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."
