He's also hit six of his seven bombs overall on the season with the Rays, his third team of 2016 following stints with the Tigers and Rangers.

Wilson is out of the lineup Monday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Wilson seems to have inched ahead of Luke Maile as the Rays' primary catcher, both backstops figure to see plenty of work down the stretch. Maile, who has been faring better offensive in his recent starts, will get the nod Monday in the matchup against the Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez.

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.
