Cubs' Justin Wilson: Avoids arbitration with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson agreed to a one-year, $4.25 million deal with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

This is Wilson's final year of arbitration before he hits the open market next winter. He notched a 2.68 ERA, 55 strikeouts and 13 saves in 40.1 innings with the Tigers before he was traded to Chicago last summer, but was surprisingly much less successful in the National League. Wilson sported a 5.09 ERA in 17.2 innings with the Cubs, and was not reliable in high-leverage spots. His past success as a closer means that he could someday get save chances again, but he figures to enter this season behind Brandon Morrow, Carl Edwards, Pedro Strop and possibly Steve Cishek in the bullpen hierarchy.

Cubs' Justin Wilson: Left off NLCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is not on the NLCS roster for the series against the Dodgers.

Wilson only pitched once during the NLDS against Washington, recording two outs during Wednesday's Game 4 loss. He was replaced on the active roster by Hector Rondon, but could rejoin the 25-man for the World Series were the Cubs to advance.

Cubs' Justin Wilson: Dealing with sore neck
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is dealing with a sore neck, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

He says the neck issues did not contribute to his struggles Tuesday (two walks, zero outs). It is unclear when Wilson will next pitch out of the bullpen, but the Cubs will want to make sure he is right heading into the postseason.

Cubs' Justin Wilson: Pitches well Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson pitched 1.1 perfect innings in Saturday's loss to the Brewers and struck out three.

It's been a rough go for Wilson since coming over to the Cubs before the July 31 trade deadline, and he's been particularly bad this month with an 11.57 ERA over 4.2 innings even after Saturday's strong outing. The Cubs could really benefit from Wilson establishing himself as a trusted left-handed reliever, but time is running out on the regular season and it's hard to see the team being too patient if Wilson struggles in the postseason.

Cubs' Justin Wilson: Looking to reestablish key role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is aiming to pitch better and prove himself capable of a high-leverage role as the postseason approaches, Steve Greenberg of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Wilson has mainly struggled with the Cubs since coming over before the July 31 trade deadline, as he's posted a 6.23 ERA and 2.15 WHIP in 13 innings with his new team. But manager Joe Maddon noted that Wilson could still play a key role for the team late in games. "Man, he could be the linchpin of a lot of this stuff right here," Maddon said. "If we get this guy right, that could make a big difference down the stretch run and hopefully into the playoffs."
