Top Bobby Wilson News

  • Bobby Wilson: Moves into coaching

    Wilson was named the manager of Double-A Frisco in the Rangers system Monday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The move ends the 36-year-old's playing career. While Wilson never played more than 75 big-league games in a season, he did finish with 386 total games in the majors split over 10 seasons. He'll retire with a career .203/.258/.304 slash line and 18 homers, having appeared at the highest level for the Angels, Diamondbacks, Rays, Rangers, Tigers and Twins.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: To be waived Tuesday

    Wilson will be waived by the Tigers on Tuesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Wilson was reportedly placed on outright waivers by Detroit on Saturday, though there is a 72-hour window for other teams around the league to claim him. If he's still unclaimed by Tuesday afternoon, Wilson will have the option of being assigned to Triple-A Toledo or becoming a free agent, per McCosky.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: On bench Friday

    Wilson is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Kansas City.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: On bench again

    Wilson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Wilson went 1-for-3 with his first two RBI of the season while starting at catcher in Saturday's 10-6 loss. Though he's acted as the primary backstop since Grayson Greiner (back) landed on the injured list, Wilson will give way to John Hicks behind the dish for the third time in four games Sunday.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: Sitting in early game

    Wilson is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: Set for season debut Sunday

    Wilson is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Sunday's game against Cleveland.

    Wilson had his contract selected from Triple-A Toledo ahead of Saturday's game, and now he'll get into the lineup for the first time this season. The 36-year-old catcher struggled last year with a .178/.242/.281 slash line in 47 games with the Twins, but with Grayson Greiner (back) on the injured list, Wilson should pick up a few starts as the backup to John Hicks behind the plate.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: Headed to big leagues

    Wilson will have his contract selected from Triple-A Toledo ahead of Saturday's game against the Indians.

    Wilson is set to get another shot in the big leagues after struggling to a .178/.242/.281 slash line over 47 games a season ago while with the Twins. He'll serve as the backup catcher to John Hicks after Grayson Greiner (back) was placed on the injured list.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: Winds up back with Tigers

    Wilson signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Sunday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Wilson was let go Saturday but will remain in the organization. He's expected to report to Triple-A Toledo and could be an option if injuries strike the Tigers' big-league catchers.

  • Bobby Wilson: Parts ways with Detroit

    The Tigers released Wilson on Saturday, a source told Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Grayson Greiner and John Hicks opened spring training as the Tigers' top two backstops, leaving Wilson to compete with fellow non-roster invitee Cameron Rupp for No. 3 catcher duties. It's not clear if Detroit actually intends to carry three catchers on its Opening Day roster, but in any event, Rupp evidently edged ahead of Wilson in the pecking order. The 35-year-old Wilson will now look to latch on with another organization, likely on a minor-league contract.

  • Tigers' Bobby Wilson: Inks deal with Tigers

    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.

  • Cubs' Bobby Wilson: Activated from DL

    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.

  • Cubs' Bobby Wilson: Dealt to Cubs

    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.

  • Twins' Bobby Wilson: Moves to disabled list

    Wilson was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a right ankle bruise, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The move is unsurprising as Wilson was seen using crutches after sustaining the injury during Thursday's game. Mitch Garver should serve as the Twins' primary catcher in the meantime, but Willians Astudillo -- recalled in a corresponding move Friday -- could also see some time behind the plate.

  • Twins' Bobby Wilson: May hit disabled list

    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.
