Wilson will undergo surgery next week to address fraying on the labrum and rotator cuff in his left shoulder. Things seemed to be trending this way with Wilson seeking a second opinion on the shoulder last week, and the team officially announced Tuesday that the lefty will need surgery. The procedure will knock him out until next season and presumably end his tenure with the Angels, as Wilson's a free agent this winter. He turns 36 in November.
Wilson (shoulder) is leaning toward undergoing season-ending surgery, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. Apparently, the second opinion Wilson received on his shoulder last week was similar to the first, as he now seems resigned to needing surgery. Wilson has made little notable progress over the past month or so following another setback near the end of May. An MRI around that time reportedly showed no "new damage" to the shoulder.
Wilson is slated for a second opinion on his injured shoulder, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. The shoulder has been bothering Wilson since February and he hasn't pitched, even in a rehab start, since May 25. At this point, it's hard to imagine he's going to pitch in the majors in 2016, but we'll update if his next doctor's visit supplies some unexpected good news.
Wilson (shoulder) has not pitched in a game since a May 25 rehab appearance at Inland Empire. He was scheduled to throw a bullpen session two weeks ago, but the Angels have provided nothing in the way of updates regarding Wilson's progress in the time since that scheduled session. It's reasonable to think that he will need four or five rehab starts if and when he's healthy enough to pitch again this season, making it unlikely that he will be activated before the All-Star break.
Wilson (shoulder) will resume throwing later in the week, Jeff Fletcher of the OC Register reports. Wilson threw a bullpen session last weekend and reported feeling "awful" in the aftermath. While a subsequent examination revealed no further damage to his left shoulder, the Rangers have given him more than a week off to recover. Wilson will now resume throwing, but he'll likely be brought along slowly to avoid another setback.
