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

Wilson agreed to a one-year, $1.175 million contract with the Tigers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

The right-hander was successful throughout most of the year -- outside of a pair of blowups in May. Wilson bumped his strikeout rate back up, although the strikeouts came with more walks and fewer groundballs. He's somewhat relevant in leagues that count holds after finishing with 14 last season, but his role in the middle innings doesn't lend itself well to mixed-league prominence.

Tigers' Alex Wilson: Has turned season around in second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson credits two minor mechanical adjustments -- a slight adjustment to his arm angle and another to the grip on his cutter -- to turn around a dismal first half of the season.

Wilson struggled with inherited runners in the first half of the season. But dropping his arm slot to a three-quarter angle and gripping his slider directly over the seams have made Wilson a real asset out of the pen in the second half. He's being used in a variety of situations and as early as the fifth inning. Wilson is worth monitoring and may become a value add off the wire if manager Brad Ausmus starts using him in a more set, late-inning role rather than in his current Jack-of-all-trades approach.

Tigers' Alex Wilson: Effective in recent outings
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson hasn't allowed a run over his last 14 innings pitched.

The three-year vet now has a 2.79 ERA on the year along with a 1.28 WHIP. Wilson's success has earned him consistent hold opportunities, however it's unlikely his role increases past that for the remainder of the season.

Tigers' Alex Wilson: Plugging away in middle relief
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson has a 3.93 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 34.1 innings this season. He has struck out 27 and walked 10.

Wilson continues to pitch in low-leverage situations for the Tigers and he is nothing more than a inning muncher. He's decidedly hittable -- he gave up four hits over 1.2 innings in his last outing. Wilson is down the bullpen pecking order, behind eighth-inning man Justin Wilson and potential seventh-inning hurlers Bruce Rondon, Kyle Ryan and Shane Green.

Tigers' Alex Wilson: Will likely pitch in low-leverage situations in short term
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' general manager Brad Ausmus has been thinking about using Wilson in lower-leverage situations in the near future to allow the reliever to correct his mechanical problems, specifically with his slider, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Wilson describes the slider as "rolling" off his hand, rather than coming off his fingertips. And it's the latter that gives the ball the movement needed to induce swings-and-misses. Right now, Wilson is struggling with the pitch staying high and that's precisely what got him into trouble Saturday when Khris Davis took him yard for a three-run home run. Wilson's value is tied to late inning work, so reserve him if you have room on your bench. But you know what to do if there are better options on the wire right now.
