Yankees' Justin Wilson: Earns win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (1-0) earned the win over Washington on Saturday, pitching a perfect inning and striking out a pair.

This was a well-deserved win for Wilson, who had to deal with the extra-innings leadoff runner at second base but managed to keep the Nationals off the scoreboard in the 11th frame. The left-hander had allowed a combined five earned runs over his previous three appearances, so Saturday's effort could go a long way toward righting the ship. Wilson has a 6.23 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB across 8.2 innings this season.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Tosses scoreless frame in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed one scoreless and hitless inning against the Rays on Saturday, allowing one walk while striking out two.

Wilson missed the start of the campaign due to a shoulder issue and was activated from the injured list Friday. His control was shaky in his season debut -- Wilson threw only 12 of 24 pitches for strikes, allowing one walk and hitting a batter -- but he navigated around the baserunners to emerge unscathed. The southpaw should play an important role in the Yankees' bullpen after securing 10 holds and posting a 3.66 ERA over 23 appearances with the Mets last season.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

The veteran southpaw opened the season on the injured list after shoulder tightness cropped up late in camp, but he'll join the team after missing the first week of the campaign. Wilson had a 3.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 23:9 K:BB over 19.2 innings for the Mets last season.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) threw to live hitters Tuesday and is on track to return from the injured list this weekend, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports.

The throwing session went well, according to manager Aaron Boone, increasing the likelihood that the left-hander will return from the IL when eligible this Friday. Wilson has been throwing for over a week after being shut down with shoulder tightness near the end of spring training.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Will return next weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) will be activated prior to next weekend's series against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Manager Aaron Boone said he liked what he saw in Wilson's live batting practice session Saturday, adding that the veteran southpaw is "pretty much ready to go." Wilson should occupy a low-to-mid leverage role out of New York's bullpen once healthy.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Opening on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) will open the season on the injured list, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

An MRI last week confirmed that Wilson wasn't dealing with a serious shoulder injury, and he's since resumed throwing. He's in a fine place in his recovery, but the lost buildup time means he won't be quite ready to go by Opening Day. The Yankees can backdate his trip to the injured list, meaning he won't have to miss more than a week to start the season.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) played catch from 90 feet Saturday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Wilson threw for the first time since exiting Monday's game with a trainer, and he reportedly felt great after his throwing session. While it doesn't appear as though Wilson will be ready to pitch in time for Opening Day, the team still hasn't determined whether he'll require time on the injured list to begin the regular season.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Shut down temporarily
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) won't throw "for at least a few days," Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports.

This likely puts Wilson out of the running for Opening Day, though an official timeline for his return has yet to be announced. The left-hander is nonetheless believed to have avoided serious injury and isn't expected to miss extensive time.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: MRI comes back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said the MRI that Wilson (shoulder) underwent Tuesday revealed "nothing actionable."

Wilson has been dealing with left shoulder tightness since leaving Monday's spring game with a trainer. The southpaw will receive an oral anti-inflammatory medication over the next several days and will resume a throwing program following his treatment. While it appears unlikely that Wilson will be available for Opening Day, he seems to have avoided a serious injury and is currently considered day-to-day.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: MRI incoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Marly Rivera of reports.

Once the results of Wilson's MRI become available, the Yankees are expected to provide an update on how long the lefty might be sidelined after he exited Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies with shoulder tightness. He retired none of the four batters he faced prior to departing with the injury, and his spring ERA now sits at 23.14 over four appearances.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Dealing with shoulder tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson was diagnosed with tightness in his left shoulder after exiting Monday's contest early.

Wilson motioned to the dugout in the middle of his outing and quickly exited the game after speaking with a trainer. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday, though the injury has the potential to hold him out through the start of the regular season.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (undisclosed) exited Monday's game with a trainer, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Wilson called to the dugout while on the mound and spoke to trainers before exiting the game. There are no details regarding the injury, though it could affect his status for Opening Day.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Roughed up in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson retired only one batter (via strikeout) in Wednesday's Grapefruit League appearance versus Pittsburgh, allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits.

It's safe to assume that this isn't how Wilson anticipated his first outing of the spring to go. He struck out the first batter he faced, then allowed a solo home run to Jared Oliva. The next three batters reached base (one via error) before Brian Goodwin ended Wilson's appearance with a grand slam to right field. Despite the rough start, the southpaw has a firm hold on a bullpen spot for the Yankees, especially with fellow left-hander Zack Britton out for an extended period due to elbow surgery.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Signs with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson signed with the Yankees on Monday, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.

The financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The 33-year-old has 18 career saves, though he's unlikely to pick up many more this season in a bullpen where he'll be the third southpaw behind two of the best left-handed relievers of this generation in Aroldis Chapman and Zack Britton. Still, Wilson should certainly be able to help the Yankees, as he recorded a 3.66 ERA in 19.2 innings for the Mets last season and owns a 3.26 ERA across the last four campaigns.

Mets' Justin Wilson: Notches second straight hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson retired both batters he faced Tuesday en route to earning his ninth hold of the season in the Mets' 5-2 win over the Rays.

Wilson was summoned from the bullpen after starter Seth Lugo departed in the seventh inning with one out and runners on first and second. After a successful double steal by the Rays put two runners in scoring position, Wilson induced a groundball to record the second out of the inning. He then allowed the Rays to cut their deficit to one run on a wild pitch, but he buckled down and struck out Hunter Renfroe to end the threat. Wilson now has nine holds on the season to go with a 3.86 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 22 appearances.

Mets' Justin Wilson: Picks up win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (1-1) was credited with the win in Tuesday's 8-3 victory over the Marlins, giving up one hit over 1.1 scoreless innings of relief. He struck out two.

The southpaw was the first pitcher out of the bullpen after Corey Oswalt gave the Mets a solid effort in his emergency start. Wilson's 4.70 ERA and 1.70 WHIP aren't pretty, but his 10:4 K:BB through 7.2 innings suggests he's been a little unlucky. He's also held the opposition off the scoreboard in seven of his nine appearances, collecting five holds along the way. Expect Wilson to continue seeing high-leverage work.

Mets' Justin Wilson: Grabs second hold Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson gave up one hit and struck out one in one-third of an inning Saturday to record his second hold of the season in an extra-inning loss to Atlanta.

He was able to face fewer than three batters per MLB's new bullpen usage rules, as his punchout of Ronald Acuna with runners on the corners ended the eighth inning. Wilson is the only southpaw in the Mets' bullpen at the moment, and his ability to handle high-leverage spots should allow him to be a consistent source of holds in the shortened 2020 season.

Mets' Justin Wilson: Dominant start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has yet to allow a baserunner through two spring innings, striking out four of the six batters he's faced, Anthony DiComo of reports.

The southpaw was effective last season in between IL stints, and a healthy Wilson has come out blazing in camp. He's set to be the top left-hander in the Mets' bullpen this season, but the new three-batter minimum rule likely won't impact him much -- over his career, the 32-year-old has held right-handed hitters to a lower wOBA (.282) than lefties (.295), with comparable strikeout (26.9% vs. LH, 25.8% vs. RH) and walk (10.5% vs. LH, 10.9% vs. RH) rates.

Mets' Justin Wilson: Likely done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mickey Callaway said Wilson likely won't pitch again this season, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The Mets are eliminated from playoff contention and don't want to overwork Wilson, who dealt with an elbow injury earlier in summer. The lefty compiled a 2.54 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 44:19 K:BB across 39 innings this season.

Mets' Justin Wilson: Records fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson allowed one walk and struck out two through a scoreless and hitless inning to record his fourth save in a 6-3 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Wilson made quick work of the Reds in the ninth inning despite a walk to nail down his fourth save. Wilson has received save opportunities as of late while Seth Lugo is being used in a setup role. The 32-year-old has a 4-2 record with a 2.61 ERA and 44 strikeouts through 44 appearances this season.
