Wilson gave up a run on two hits while striking out one over an inning of work in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

A free-agent signing this offseason, the 31-year-old is expected to be the Mets' top left-handed set-up man in 2019. While Wilson's 6:0 K:BB through five spring innings is sharp, he's also given up six runs on 10 hits, including two homers. A 10.80 ERA in mid-March doesn't mean anything in the long run, but fantasy GMs looking for Wilson to provide holds and strikeouts this year would be reassured by a couple of clean outings before camp breaks.

Wilson signed a contract with the Mets on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson spent the last season and a half with the Cubs and posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 72.1 innings. The 31-year-old's 6.5 BB/9 is somewhat concerning, but his 3.4 BB/9 over the previous five seasons could mean that's an anomoly. According to Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com, it's a two-year deal worth $10 million. Wilson helps solidify the Mets bullpen and should serve as the top left-handed option in front of closer Edwin Diaz.

Wilson figures to move up in the bullpen pecking order and could get some save opportunities with Pedro Strop (hamstring) expected to miss a few weeks.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson has had a nice season to date, compiling a 2.92 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 67 strikeouts across 52.1 innings. As the top lefty in Chicago's bullpen, Wilson is likely to be used whenever the matchups are most advantageous rather than in a strict ninth-inning role, but he could still get a few saves here and there down the stretch. Steve Cishek, Carl Edwards Jr. and Brandon Kintzler also profile as potential replacements for Strop.

Wilson (4-4) took the loss and a blown save in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, allowing a run on a hit and a walk while retiring two batters.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson and Steve Cishek combined to make a mess of the bottom of the seventh. Cishek started the frame by allowing two hits and recording just one out. The Cubs then turned to Wilson to face Bryce Harper in a lefty-lefty matchup with a runner on second, and Harper proceeded to club a two-run home run that put Washington up 6-5. Despite the hiccup, Wilson still has a solid 2.98 ERA this season, and he should remain the top left-handed option in Chicago's bullpen.

Wilson (4-3) snagged the win in Sunday's comeback win over the Nationals. He retired the only two batters he faced with one strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson relieved an ineffective Brandon Kintzler in the top of the ninth inning and kept Washington to just two runs in the frame and a 3-0 lead. The lefty then picked up a surprise win when the Cubs walked off the Nationals in the bottom of the inning on a David Bote grand slam. Wilson has been better this season after a rough debut with the Cubs last year, as he now has a 3.22 ERA through 44.2 innings.

Wilson (3-3) was tagged with the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Cardinals. He allowed two earned runs on two walks and did not retire a batter.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson came on to start the ninth inning with the game tied 3-3. He can be forgiven for walking the red-hot Matt Carpenter, but the lefty then walked Harrison Bader before getting the hook. The runs would come around to score, saddling Wilson with the loss. Despite the hiccup, the 30-year-old still has a solid 3.18 ERA this season, which is a vast improvement over the 5.09 mark he posted in 23 games with the Cubs last year following a July trade.

Wilson (2-2) picked up the win Saturday against the Twins. He pitched a scoreless inning of relief with one strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson struggled in Friday's game, giving up three hits and a run while retiring just two hitters, but he was much better Saturday. The 30-year-old now carries a 3.18 ERA and has been a fairly reliable left-handed option out of Chicago's bullpen this season after posting a rough 5.10 ERA with the Cubs last year after arriving via trade.

Wilson (1-2) blew the save and took the loss in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, allowing two earned runs on two hits and a walk over an inning of work.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson got the save opportunity with Brandon Morrow (back) unavailable, and he couldn't shut the door. The lefty was within one out of escaping with the save, but pinch-hitter Kyle Farmer delivered a two-run double to put Los Angeles up 4-3. Wilson still carries a solid 2.73 ERA, and he could get additional save opportunities if Morrow has to miss any extended time, though Steve Cishek and Pedro Strop figure to be in the mix from the right side, too.

Wilson pitched a scoreless inning of relief in Friday's win over the Reds, walking one and striking out three. He lowered his season ERA to 3.12.

EDGE Analysis

Since allowing four earned runs in 0.2 innings on April 12, Wilson has logged a 1.64 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 11 innings of work with 12 strikeouts. During this stretch, he's only been scored upon twice in 12 appearances.

Wilson retired both batters he faced in Friday's win over the White Sox, which extended his scoreless inning streak to 4.1 and lowered his ERA to 3.86.

EDGE Analysis

While 4.1 scoreless innings isn't overly impressive, it's a good sign for Wilson, who has mostly struggled since joining the Cubs last summer. Since a four-run implosion on April 12, the lefty has a 2.35 ERA with a 10.6 K/9. He remains the top left-handed option out of Chicago's bullpen.
