Wilson went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI against the Red Sox on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson has been a surprising source of production behind the plate, collecting six hits in his last 12 at-bats, including a home run and three RBI. The 33-year-old's success is unexpected, as the Rays are his third organization this season, and he is the owner of a career .213 batting average.

Wilson went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop provided the only runs on the day for the Rays, plating Corey Dickerson with a fifth-inning two-run blast to left. Wilson has hits in two of his last three games and is capable of providing occasional pop in his occasional starts.

Wilson notched a homer in his return to the Rays, blasting a solo shot as part of a 2-for-4, two-RBI effort in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop launched a 373-foot solo homer in the fifth before closing out the scoring for the Rays with an RBI single in the eighth that plated Steven Souza, Jr. It was Wilson's first game since returning to Tampa on Thursday. He had a brief 55 at-bat stint with the Rays last season, slashing only .145/.203/.145.

Wilson was claimed off waivers by the Rays on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson was DFA'd by the Rangers on August 1 after the team acquired catcher Jonathan Lucroy from the Brewers. The 33-year-old was scooped up by the Rays following their win against Kansas City on Thursday, and will figure to slot behind Luke Maile on the depth chart with Curt Casali going down to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move.

Wilson was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Monday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson was one of two catcher casualties following the Rangers' additions of Jonathan Lucroy and Jeremy Jeffress from Milwaukee. With Lucroy set to take the clear lead role behind the plate, the Rangers had no need to keep three catchers. With Wilson and Bryan Holaday both designated for assignment, Texas has just Lucroy and Robinson Chirinos on the team's depth chart behind the plate. The 33-year-old backstop hit just .241/.270/.333 over 47 games between the Rangers and Tigers this season, and could be bound for the minors if unclaimed through waivers.

Wilson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers activated Robinson Chirinos (forearm) from the DL on Friday following a lengthy absence, so at the very least, it seems likely that Wilson will have to split the at-bats behind the dish moving forward. Given that Chirinos has historically shown more offensive capabilities, it may not take long for him to assume a larger portion of the timeshare at the position, putting Wilson's fantasy value on the downswing.

Wilson remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday marks Wilson's third straight absence from the lineup as Bryan Holaday continues to start behind the dish. However, Wilson has been far more productive than his counterpart at the plate thus far this season, batting .318/.352/.424 compared to Holaday's .239/.293/.403 slash line. There is no report of an injury for Wilson at this time, so his extended absence from the lineup could be dictated by manager Jeff Banister's preference for Holaday's defense behind the plate.
