Wilson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fresh off his second grand slam of the season in Saturday's contest, Wilson will receive the day off after he was behind the plate in the last three games. He appears to have usurped Bryan Holaday for the primary catching duties for the time being, but that could change as soon as Wilson falls into any sort of prolonged slump.

Wilson is batting ninth and starting at catcher Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wilson, who was acquired by the Rangers on Tuesday, gets the start on Wednesday after Brett Nicholas was sent down to Triple-A Round Rock to make space for him. Wilson has two hits in 13 at-bats this season. With Robinson Chirinos on the disabled list, look for Wilson to get a number of starts moving forward if Bryan Holaday continues to struggle.

Wilson was acquired by the Rangers for Chad Bell on Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wilson had signed a minor league deal with the Rangers in December, but was traded to the Tigers near the end of spring training for Bryan Holaday. With Holaday struggling at the dish this season, hitting just .154/.233/.179 through 13 games, the Rangers decided to pull the trigger and reacquire Wilson. Detroit also activated James McCann from the 15-day DL on Tuesday, and between him and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, they no longer have a need for Wilson's services. This trade is beneficial to Wilson's playing time, but his fantasy value is still limited as he hasn't hit above .200 in a full season since 2012.
