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.


Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney likely to be sent to Triple-A


(3/29/2015) 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."


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.

The expected starters would be Jered Weaver, Matt Shoemaker, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago with Garrett Richards still 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 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."

Report: Angels SP C.J. Wilson scratched Tuesday due to illness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) 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."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson altered his offseason routine in order to bounce back in 2015, according to MLB.com.

"I didn't have a good season," Wilson said. "Some of my games were really good, and some of my games were really terrible. That's the hard thing." In order to combat that, Wilson threw nine bullpen sessions during the offseason to get an early start on his mechanics and location. 

When asked about what led to his down year in 2014, Wilson pointed to injuries. "I would advise myself to never pitch when I'm sick and never pitch when I'm hurt, because then I'm not any good," he said.

Wilson went on the disabled list with an ankle injury in July. He was able to return in August, but said he didn't fully recover until after the season. The 34-year-old is coming off a season in which he posted a 4.51 ERA over 175 2/3 innings. He led the American League with 85 walks.

"I’m very confident in C.J. Wilson," Dipoto said Tuesday, per The Orange County Register. "There is nothing physically that holds him back from being C.J. Wilson. This year he was outstanding for the first six or eight weeks, and then he came unglued. But he’s got a track record."

Wilson, who went 13-10 with a 4.51 ERA in 31 starts in 2014, is under contract for two more seasons and is due to make $20 million in 2016. He has a limited no-trade clause, where he can block trades to eight teams, according to Baseball-Reference.com.
