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.

Wilson receive a rare start in Friday's 9-2 rout of the Twins, going 2-for-5 with an RBI.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran backstop appeared in a game for only the fifth time since joining the big league club on April 12, and notched his first two hits in a Tigers uniform in the process. Wilson has received the occasional start in Jarrod Saltalamacchia's stead while James McCann (ankle) has been sidelined, but the latter is expected to be finished with his minor-league rehab stint by the end of the weekend.

Wilson has been called up by the Tigers, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Tigers placed James McCann (ankle) on the DL early Tuesday, but did not immediately reveal the results of an MRI he had Monday. Wilson will serve as the backup behind Jarrod Saltalamacchia for the Tigers throughout the duration of McCann's absence.

Wilson was traded to the Tigers on Tuesday along with Myles Jaye in exchange for Bryan Holaday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's batting .292 this spring, but Wilson's time in Rangers camp was mostly unremarkable, as he accounted for just one extra-base hit in 24 at-bats. With Holaday heading back to Texas in the trade, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is now locked in as the primary backup to James McCann in Detroit. Wilson seems likely to start the year as depth at Triple-A.

Wilson signed a minor league contract with the Rangers Tuesday, John Blake of the Texas Rangers reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wilson played with both the Rays and Rangers in 2015, but batted a lowly .189 in 132 at-bats between the two teams. The 32-year-old is a somewhat serviceable catching option when needed, as the Rangers know from last season, and will likely serve as organizational depth going forward.

Wilson will elect to become a free agent after refusing his outright assignment, Executive Vice President of Communications for the Rangers John Blake reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wilson appeared in 56 games for the Rays and Rangers in 2015, but the 32-year-old back-up catcher wasn't able to do much at the plate, recording a .189/.255/.250 slash line in 132 at-bats. He's never been known for his offense, but he should receive some interest in free agency from teams looking for a veteran backstop.

Wilson hit his first home run of the season Wednesday, a two-run shot off Astros reliever Michael Feliz.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Rangers don't count on Wilson for much offense at the bottom of their lineup, so anything like this is just a nice bonus. He should continue to see semi-regular playing time behind the dish down the stretch, but isn't likely to provide much help for fantasy purposes.
