Angels placed struggling C.J. Wilson on 15-day DL
The Angels have placed left-hander C.J. Wilson on the disabled list with an ankle problem.
The Angels have placed left-hander C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list with an ankle injury, the team announced. It is his first visit to the disabled list since becoming a starter during the 2010 season.
Wilson, 33, allowed six runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. He told reporters his struggles "are not a physical issue" following the game. Wilson has pitched to a 10.26 ERA with a 2.34 WHIP in his last four starts.
Before becoming a starter a few years ago, Wilson battled numerous injury problems, including Tommy John surgery and a broken elbow. He has been incredibly durable since moving into the rotation though, throwing at least 200 innings every year from 2010-12.
Wilson has gone 8-6 with a 4.33 ERA in 19 starts and 116 1/3 innings this year. He owns a 3.48 ERA in 958 1/3 innings as a starter since 2010. As a reliever from 2005-09, Wilson had a 4.30 ERA in 280 2/3 innings.
