by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wilson will likely be activated from the disabled list Saturday to start against the Rays. He has been out since July 9 while recovering from an ankle injury, though he did strike out seven while giving up two runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's rehab start.

C.J. Wilson likely to need rehab assignment


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson said Monday that his sore ankle doesn't bother him while throwing but that he'll probably need a rehab assignment before returning from the disabled list, MLB.com reports.

Wilson is throwing his first bullpen session since going on the disabled list Monday. He struggled in his final four starts before being sidelined, giving up 19 earned runs in 16 2/3 innings. He owns a 4.33 ERA and 107:48 K:BB ratio in 116 1/3 innings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

C.J. Wilson has a rough start Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson had a tough time against the Blue Jays Wednesday.

Wilson allowed six runs, three earned, over 3 2/3 innings during the contest. He struck out one and walked three. Wilson didn’t run into major trouble until the fourth inning. After allowing a single to the leadoff man, the second batter reached base on an error. After a walk loaded the bases, Wilson uncorked a wild pitch, scoring a run. He then allowed a two-run single. The Angels then proceeded to make another error behind Wilson, extending the inning. He allowed a two-run double, and was pulled from the game. 

Marcus Stroman turned in an equally awful start, allowing Wilson to escape with the no-decision. It’s unclear how the Angels will structure their rotation following the All-Star Game, so Wilson’s next start is up in the air at the moment. 


C.J. Wilson unable to factor into decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson was unable to factor into the decision at home Friday night against Houston. The right-hander was shelled for six runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over 4 1/3 innings of a 7-6 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 13 innings, Wilson has allowed 16 earned runs. He owns a 4.23 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 18 starts (112 2/3 innings). He will look to pick up the pieces in his next start Thursday at Texas.

C.J. Wilson surrenders four runs in short outing Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson wasn't a factor in Sunday's decision, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 loss to the Royals.

Wilson got into trouble in the fourth inning, hitting a batter before a double and single brought the first Royals run home. He also walked three batters (one intentional) in the inning as three more runs came home before he was removed. Wilson owns a 3.90 ERA and 100:44 K:BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Astros Friday.


C.J. Wilson hit hard; offense picks him up in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson got plenty of help Tuesday, in an 8-6 win over the Twins.  

Wilson needed all the help he could get, in his shortest outing in four trips to the mound. He lasted five innings, allowing six runs on nine hits, while walking no batters. Wilson struck out four hitters on 99 pitches, and never trailed despite allowing five runs in the second inning.

Wilson pushed his record to 8-6 with the win, despite watching his ERA right to 3.70, the highest it has been since mid-April. His next start is set for Sunday in Kansas City.  


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.

The Angels did announce their rotation plans, with MLB.com reporting that C.J. Wilson will be moved back to Thursday, with Garrett Richards pushed back to a Friday start against the 


C.J. Wilson Ks eight in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson was not at his best Friday night against the Braves, as he dropped to 7-6 on the season. The left-hander yielded four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight in six innings of a 4-3 defeat.

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.


C.J. Wilson rocked for five runs in short outing vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson couldn't make it out of the third inning Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on six hits and five walks in 2 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 7-2 loss to Astros.

Wilson (6-5) failed to get through five innings for the first time this season Tuesday thanks in part to issuing a season-high five walks. Even with the bad outing, he owns a 3.52 ERA and 73:32 K:BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings. Wilson is scheduled to face the White Sox Sunday.


C.J. Wilson falls short in pitcher's duel


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson tossed the ball well Wednesday, but ran into a better pitcher in a 3-1 loss to the Mariners.

With Felix Hernandez on the mound and at his best, Wilson needed to be something close to perfect to have a chance. He was good, limiting the Mariners to three runs in 7 2/3 innings of work, but that wasn't enough to save him from the loss. He allowed five hits and walked two batters, while striking out five on 115 pitches.

Wilson is now 6-4 with a 3.05 ERA through 11 starts, while ranking third in the American League with 76 2/3 innings pitched. His next start is set for Tuesday in Houston.

Wilson owns a 3.00 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in 69 innings of work. He will make his next start Wednesday at Seattle.
