Wilson signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Tuesday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports. Wilson will report to Triple-A Toledo. The veteran backstop appeared in 47 games for the Twins in 2018, slashing .178/.242/.281 with two homers in 47 games. He figures to serve as organizational catching depth in 2019.
Wilson (ankle) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Chicago Sun-Times reports. Wilson had been sidelined since Aug. 23 due to a major right ankle bruise that forced him to spend some time on crutches. He was dealt to Chicago from Minnesota in late August, so he's yet to play for his current club. It's unlikely that Wilson receives any time on the field this weekend during a huge three-game set with St. Louis, especially with Willson Contreras and Victor Caratini ahead of him on the depth chart at his position. On the year, Wilson has slashed .178/.242/.281 with two home runs in 47 games.
Wilson (ankle) was traded to the Cubs from Minnesota on Thursday in exchange for Chris Gimenez and a player to be named later or cash considerations, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Wilson is currently on the disabled list with a right ankle bruise, but he will be eligible to come off the shelf Monday. He will add a little extra catching depth behind Willson Contreras and Victor Carartini. Across 47 games this year, Wilson has hit .178/.242/.281 with two home runs and 16 RBI.
Wilson (ankle) was seen using crutches after Friday's game and may require a DL stint, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Wilson suffered the injury Thursday trying to cover first base when he accidentally tripped over a bat. The fact that he was on crutches suggests he'll need at least a couple days before returning to action, but a DL stint is certainly in the realm of possibility. Mitch Garver will take on the bulk of the catching duties as long as Wilson is sidelined.
Wilson was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain Thursday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. The Twins' catching depth will be tested if Wilson is to miss time beyond Thursday. He suffered the injury backing up first base and appeared to tweak his ankle. Mitch Garver is the lone true catcher on the active roster beyond Wilson.
