C.J. Wilson was unable to make it through the sixth inning, but picked up his 10th win as the Angels topped the Red Sox on Monday.
Wilson's line was all about the fives: 5 1/3 innings, five hits, five walks, five strikeouts. He only allowed one run, however, which came in the fourth on a Brock Holt single. The left-hander has shown improvement as the month of August has progressed, but his overall stats aren't very good. He has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP, and a 121/61 K/BB ratio. Wilson will take on the Athletics in Oakland on Saturday. Aug 18 - 10:54 PM

C.J. Wilson allowed two runs in 6 2/3 innings on Tuesday in a win versus the Phillies.

Wilson wasn't superb -- striking out two, walking two and giving up seven hits -- but a quality start may just have saved his rotation spot. He had coughed up 10 runs in seven innings covering two losses since returning from a one-month furlough on the disabled list with a sprained ankle. His struggles started long before that, of course: Wilson was 1-2 with an 11.03 ERA in his last six outings. Overall, the 33-year-old southpaw owns a 4.71 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 116/56 K/BB ratio in 130 innings. Wilson toes the rubber in Boston on Monday.
Aug 13 - 1:14 AM

C.J. Wilson struggled again in Thursday's start against the Dodgers, giving up four runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss.

Wilson struck out five, but 46 of his 100 pitches were balls and he walked four. The left-hander remains in a deep funk. He came into this game allowing a .416 opponent's batting average in his last five outings. He coughed up 25 earned runs over 18 innings during that stretch, which was intersected by three weeks missed due to a sprained ankle. Despite his struggles, he had won six straight decisions at home prior to dropping this one against Hyun-Jin Ryu. Next time around, Wilson will host the Phillies. He can't be trusted in mixed leagues at the moment.
Aug 8 - 1:38 AM

C.J. Wilson allowed six runs in only an inning and a third on Saturday.

Wilson had been on the DL for about a month with a tight hip and right ankle sprain. The rust showed. Evan Longoria smashed a two-run home run off of Wilson in the top of the bottom of the first and the Rays went on to score six runs before the end of the second inning. Wilson's ERA is a rather pedestrian 4.74 and if he's on your fantasy squad, you should probably wait a start or two to use him, hoping he can shake off some cobwebs.
Aug 3 - 12:17 AM

Angels activated LHP C.J. Wilson from the 15-day disabled list.

The veteran southpaw has been on the shelf since early July due to hip tightness and a right ankle sprain. He will rejoin the Angels rotation on Saturday when he takes on the Rays.
Aug 2 - 3:35 PM

C.J. Wilson (ankle, hip) is penciled in to rejoin the Angels' rotation Saturday against the Rays.

Wilson has been sidelined since early July with a right ankle sprain and hip tightness, but he made it through a minor league rehab start Monday with no issues. The 33-year-old southpaw owns a 4.33 ERA and 107/48 K/BB ratio in 116 1/3 innings this season, but there's reason to expect better if he's back to full health.
Jul 31 - 5:34 PM

C.J. Wilson (ankle, hip) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon.

Wilson, who's been out since early July with a sprained ankle and hip tightness, is expected to rejoin the Angels' starting rotation on Saturday in Tampa Bay. The 33-year-old left-hander owns an underwhelming 4.33 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 107/48 K/BB ratio in 116 1/3 innings this season. He's capable of much better down the stretch.
Jul 30 - 5:20 PM

C.J. Wilson (ankle) revealed Tuesday that he believes his recent struggles have been due to tightness in his left hip.

Wilson has been out since early July with a sprained ankle, but it's the hip the lefty says was giving him issues well before that. "It had the affect of dragging the ball back over the middle of the plate, which is bad," Wilson deadpanned. "That’s where they hit the ball." Wilson has been doing exercises to loosen the hip and says it's "better, way better." He's expected to rejoin the Angels' rotation this weekend.
Jul 30 - 10:58 AM

C.J. Wilson (ankle) allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Double-A Arkansas.

Wilson threw 81 pitches and gave up four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. The southpaw has been sidelined all month with a right ankle sprain, but he should be cleared to rejoin the Angels' rotation this weekend.
Jul 29 - 8:50 AM

C.J. Wilson (ankle) will make a rehab start Monday with Double-A Arkansas.

Wilson has been out retroactive to July 1 with a right ankle sprain. He should be cleared to rejoin the Angels rotation after his one minor league rehab outing.
Jul 26 - 5:55 PM

C.J. Wilson (ankle) is scheduled to throw an "up-and-down" bullpen session on Wednesday.

Wilson felt good after throwing 50 pitches in a bullpen session Monday and will test himself Wednesday in what will essentially amount to a simulated game, as he'll take breaks as if he was pitching separate innings. The southpaw will almost certainly require a minor league rehab assignment, but should be able to return within a couple of weeks.
Jul 22 - 9:29 AM

C.J. Wilson (ankle) threw a bullpen session Monday.

It was his first since landing on the disabled list. Wilson's right ankle doesn't hurt while he's throwing, but he's expected to go out on a rehab assignment so that he can test things out. It's looking like he probably won't be ready to return before the end of the month.
Jul 21 - 7:27 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Friday that C.J. Wilson's injured ankle is still sore, and while he's currently throwing, he hasn't yet been cleared for mound work.

There is still no definitive timetable for when the veteran southpaw may be able to rejoin the Angels rotation. Fantasy owners should plan on going without Wilson until early August.
Jul 18 - 7:41 PM

Angels placed LHP C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain.

Wilson was knocked around for six runs (three earned) in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Blue Jays and has a 10.26 ERA over his last four starts, so an injury would explain the struggles. Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto characterized Wilson's ankle sprain as "moderate" and he figures to miss 2-4 weeks.
Jul 10 - 4:33 PM

C.J. Wilson lasted just 3 2/3 innings in Wednesday's start against the Blue Jays, giving up six runs -- three earned -- in a no-decision.

That three of the runs were unearned is simply good fortune for Wilson, as the Jays had their fair share of baserunners without the Angels' help. Along with the eight hits, Wilson also walked three on the afternoon. It's been an up and down first half of the season for the 33-year-old, who will head into the second half 8-6 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.
