Wilson struggled in a no-decision Monday afternoon, allowing four runs in five innings against the Blue Jays.

Wilson allowed a season-high 10 hits in the bumpy outing and struck out just three. Wilson hadn't allowed more than two runs in any of his previous five starts, and should bounce back nicely when he takes the mound against the Red Sox this weekend.

Wilson allowed two runs on five hits while striking out six over eight innings in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Wilson has looked good good over his last three starts, throwing 22 innings over that span. The 34-year-old has always had issues with control as a starting pitcher, which culminated in a career-high walk rate last season, but he appears to have found a way to stem the tide, having walked just two batters in his last three outings. Wilson will look to continue to challenge hitters when he takes a 2.63 ERA into a matchup against the Blue Jays on Monday.

Wilson allowed two runs over seven innings while notching four strikeouts Wednesday against Seattle, earning a no-decision.

Wilson was in line for the win heading into the ninth inning, but closer Huston Street allowed the tying run to cross. He threw 61 of his 96 pitches for strikes and didn't walk a single batter. His lone mistake was leaving a fastball up and in to Kyle Seager, who pulled it into the right field stands for a two-run home run. Wilson will make his next start Tuesday at home against Colorado.

Wilson struck out five and walked one while allowing two runs -- one earned -- on four hits over seven innings against the Giants on Friday night.

While Wilson did not factor in the decision, he lowered his season ERA to 2.73 through five starts. Thus far, Wilson has had a few favorable matchups against teams that have generally struggled against left-handed pitching. He'll face the Mariners at home Wednesday in his next scheduled start.

Wilson threw the ball against the Giants on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits with five strikeouts over seven innings.

Wilosn likely deserved better than his no-decision Friday, as he didn't allow an extra-base hit through his seven innings. The 34-year-old had fluid drained from his elbow before the outing, but doesn't anticipate problems going forward, telling Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com "it's manageable." While his optimism is encouraging, owners may want to monitor him a bit more closely going forward, starting with his outing against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Wilson (elbow) allowed one run over 5.2 innings against the Rangers on Saturday. He struck out four and walked three in the contest.

Wilson had his start pushed back because of elbow soreness, and struggled with his command Saturday, needing 103 pitches to record 13 outs. The 34-year-old will reportedly take steps to protect his elbow going forward, telling Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register that he will throw less in between starts for the foreseeable future. There were questions regarding Wilson's command coming into the season, and the fact that he is now dealing with an injury could drum up more concern in the minds of prospective owners. Wilson will face the Giants on Friday.

Wilson (elbow) has been confirmed as Saturday's starter against Texas.

The Angels decided to give Wilson, who was originally slated to start Thursday, a couple extra days to rest his stiff elbow. Wilson gave up six runs in 5.2 innings against Kansas City in his second start of the year, but is sitting with a 0.98 WHIP and .187 BAA through 20.1 innings this season. Opposing lefties have combined to go just 1-for-18 against him.

Wilson (elbow) is expected to start Saturday against the Rangers, ESPN Los Angeles reports.

The left-hander was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday due to stiffness in his elbow -- Nick Tropeano will start in his place -- but evidently the issue will not even cost Wilson a full turn in the rotation. Considering the nature of the injury, it would be wise of owners to confirm Wilson's status Saturday before deploying him against Texas.

Wilson will have his regularly-scheduled start skipped Thursday due to illness, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Wilson is apparently feeling a bit under the weather, but as long as no further complications arise, he should be able to make up the start at some point this weekend. Otherwise, he next start on paper would land next Wednesday in a road matchup against Oakland. Right-hander Nick Tropeano is scheduled to take the hill against the Athletics in his stead.
