Tigers' Justin Wilson: Aiming to vary pitch speeds
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson is looking to mix in more pitches and vary his speeds more in spring training, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Last season, Wilson threw a fastball or cutter about 78 percent of the time, and those pitches sat around 95 mph and 91 mph, respectively. Wilson said his goal in spring training is to vary his speeds a bit more by mixing in a slider and a changeup more often. "I'm going in there, and my whole goal is to be a junk pitcher to really get confident in [those offspeed pitches] and use them," he said.

Tigers' Justin Wilson: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson agreed to a one-year, $2.7 million deal with the Tigers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

The 29-year-old lefty posted a 4.14 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 65:17 K:BB in 58.2 innings out of the Tigers' bullpen last season. Those ratios aren't very useful, but his strikeout rate suggests he could be better in 2017 if he has better luck on balls in play (.340 BABIP last season).

Tigers' Justin Wilson: Struggling with velocity
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson's fastball velocity has dropped since earlier this season and he seems to be struggling with location, the Detroit Free Press reports.

He has a 4.24 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 57 relief appearances, but he lasted just nine pitches Friday night, allowing three straight singles. Wilson's velocity is down about two mph since early in the season. He received a cortisone shot in early August because of elbow soreness, but manager Brad Ausmus was quick to refute suggestions he's injured. The Tigers will watch Wilson's workload in the immediate future to try to get him back to the top of his game as the team's top left-handed reliever.

Tigers' Justin Wilson: Receives cortisone injection
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson received a cortisone injection in his elbow before Monday's game, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Manager Brad Ausmus confirmed that the injection was in response to a nerve issue and that Wilson would still be available if needed. The left-hander leads the Detroit bullpen with 48 appearances this season, but has allowed six earned runs over his last 2.1 innings.

Tigers' Justin Wilson: Records first save of career versus Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson earned the first save of his career, retiring the Red Sox in order during a 4-3 victory Wednesday afternoon.

Detroit's regular closer Francisco Rodriguez was unavailable because he was home tending to a personal matter, so that left the ninth inning to Wilson. He did just fine, not allowing a base runner, recording 13 strikes on 19 pitches and one strikeout. In addition to one save, he is 2-3 with 20 holds, a 3.46 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 39.0 innings.
