Diamondbacks sent C Bobby Wilson outright to Triple-A Reno.

Wilson had one hit in four at-bats in September, his first major league action since 2012. The 31-year-old is nothing more than organizational depth for the Diamondbacks.
Oct 8 - 10:42 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of C Bobby Wilson from Triple-A Reno.

Wilson, 31, batted .267/.324/.341 with three home runs and 38 RBI over 76 games this season in Triple-A. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 with the Angels, but will give Arizona an extra catcher over the final two weeks.
Sep 15 - 5:10 PM

Diamondbacks signed C Bobby Wilson to a minor league contract.

Wilson had a weak .208/.311/.361 slash line in 253 plate appearances this past season for the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate. He'll be organizational depth for Arizona.

Yankees signed C Bobby Wilson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Wilson, a .208/.272/.321 career hitter, was non-tendered by Toronto at the end of November. The 29-year-old seems doubtful to crack New York's Opening Day roster.

Blue Jays non-tendered C Bobby Wilson.

Wilson was claimed off waivers from the Angels in October, but he was made expendable after the club acquired John Buck as part of a blockbuster trade with the Marlins. The 29-year-old backstop is a .208/.272/.321 career hitter in the majors and may have to settle for a minor league deal.

Bobby Wilson went 3-for-4 and hit his first homer since last August in Sunday's defeat of the Rangers.

Wilson had gone 124 at-bats without a homer this season before taking Matt Harrison deep in the seventh inning tonight. The big game will help his cause for sticking around once Chris Iannetta returns next month. He entered with an awful .197/.267/.221 line.

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

Hank Conger was sent down Sunday in a corresponding roster move. Wilson has been sidelined since suffering a concussion when he was hit in the mask by a foul tip on June 4. The 29-year-old backstop returns to a .171/.232/.171 batting line over 86 plate appearances.

Bobby Wilson (head) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Single-A Inland Empire.

Wilson will be activated Friday if he can avoid a setback. He's been on the 7-day concussion disabled list since June 5.

Angels placed C Bobby Wilson on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion.

Wilson left Monday's game in the second inning after taking a foul tip off his mask. His exact diagnosis isn't yet clear, but he'll have to pass a concussion test before being cleared to return to the field.

Bobby Wilson left Monday's game in the second inning for precautionary reasons after taking a foul tip off his mask.

Wilson was hit by a foul tip in the first inning, but stayed in the game until John Hester pinch hit for him in the bottom of the second inning. It doesn't sound like a major concern, but the Angels could send him for a concussion test just to be sure.

Alden Gonzalez of reports that the Angels will not look outside the organization at this point to replace Chris Iannetta (wrist).

Bobby Wilson is expected to receive the bulk of the playing time while Iannetta is on the shelf for 6-8 weeks following wrist surgery, with John Hester backing him up. Given Wilson's .208/.271/.331 career batting line, he doesn't inspire much confidence. We wouldn't be surprised if the Halos change their mind and look for help elsewhere eventually. Then again, Mike Scioscia put up with Jeff Mathis' lackluster hitting for years, so maybe not. Hank Conger (elbow) should be ready in a few weeks and would give the Angels a better option.

In the starting lineup for only the third time all year, Bobby Wilson finished 2-for-4 in the Angels' Monday night loss to the Athletics.

Wilson had not started a game since April 10th, as Jeff Mathis and Hank Conger essentially have been splitting catcher duties. Wilson had a fairly successful minor league career and proved last year that he could hold his own against Mathis. However, as long as all three remain on the active roster, Wilson is not expected to make a significant impact going forward.
Tue, May 17, 2011 03:31:00 AM

Bobby Wilson was back in camp Monday after being sent home due to illness on Sunday.

Wilson is scheduled to catch Dan Haren in a minor league game Tuesday against the Cubs. Both Wilson and Jeff Mathis are having good springs with the bat, so look for Hank Conger to begin the season in the minors.
