Wilson struggled in his return to the Cactus League on Sunday, allowing two runs (on two home runs) three hits and four walks in 4.1 innings against the Giants.

Wilson missed his last two turns in the rotation because of knee issues and an illness, but was able to pitch in Wednesday's intrasquad game before taking the hill Sunday. Wilson has allowed two earned runs over 7.1 innings this spring, but has allowed four walks to go with the two homers, which could be seen as less than encouraging after he posted an 11.2 percent walk rate in 2014.

Wilson will start Sunday's Cactus League game for the Angels and is on track to pitch during the first week of the season, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Wilson's spring training has been hampered by both knee issues and illness, but it appears he's finally back to his regular progression. He's expected to make his first turn in the rotation, so it seems the missed time will be no harm, no foul barring a setback of some kind.

Wilson will pitch in Wednesday's intrasquad game after being scratched from Tuesday's start, Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times reports.

Wilson was dealing with an illness that caused his start to get skipped Tuesday, but it appears to have just been a minor issue. Still, it's the second time the 34-year-old has been scratched from Cactus League action, so the Angels will likely want to see him get through a few spring appearances before deciding where to slot him in the rotation.

Wilson is dealing with an illness and will have his start skipped Tuesday, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports.

He has now missed two spring starts in a row after missing his previously scheduled start with a sore knee. Drew Rucinski will take the ball in Wilson's place Tuesday. While Wilson was slated to start the Angels' third game of the regular season, it now looks likely that he will be pushed back, at least a couple days.

Wilson will not make his scheduled start Thursday against the Cubs after tweaking his right knee during drills, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

The injury is not expected to be serious, but it will allow prospect Shawn Newcomb to take at least one turn in the rotation this spring. Wilson, who allowed an unearned run over three innings in his only appearance in Cactus League play in 2015, should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Wilson allowed three runs on three hits over two-thirds of an inning to take a loss against the Royals in Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday.

Wilson put the Angels behind the eight ball almost immediately in Sunday's must-win contest, as a three-run double with two outs in the first spelled the end of his night. The performance marked the second time in three outings Wilson was unable to complete at least one frame of work. His career postseason ERA now stands at 5.26.

Wilson will start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Royals on Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

The Angels moved Wilson's final regular season start up a day, seemingly to get him one extra day of rest before his ALDS start, but he'll end up getting three extra days with Matt Shoemaker (oblique) cleared to start Game 2. He'll likely oppose Royals ace James Shields, who will be on normal rest after pitching in the AL Wild Card game Tuesday.

Wilson allowed just one run on four hits in six-plus innings en route to a no-decision against the Mariners on Saturday. He struck out three and walked two in the contest.

Wilson bounced back nicely from his shortest outing of the season against the A's on Monday, holding Seattle scoreless for six frames before a walk and an RBI double drove him from the contest. Wilson finishes the 2014 regular season with a a 4.51 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP in 175.2 innings. He will pitch in Game 2 of the ALDS next week.

Wilson's next start has been moved up to Saturday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

Cory Rasmus was originally penciled in to start Saturday, but the Angels will instead move Wilson up, leaving a starter for Sunday's regular-season finale uncertain. Wilson will thus be afforded one extra day of rest, before a potential Game 2 start in the ALDS.
