Wilson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Wilson started Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays and allowed two runs on six hits while striking out five in six innings. He didn't factor into the decision and will now head to the minors after right-hander Chris Martin (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Wilson allowed two runs on six hits while striking out five batters over six innings Tuesday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.
Wilson was recalled Tuesday to make a spot start in place of Drew Smyly and had one of the better outings of his young career. The 23-year-old had his first quality start of 2021 and recorded a season-high five strikeouts, tally largely bolstered by the fact he struck out the side in the first inning. His only major mistake of the evening was allowing a two-run homer to Vladimir Guerrero in the sixth to even the game. It's unclear what manager Brian Snitker's plans are for Wilson moving forward, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was sent back to Triple-A Gwinnett unless Atlanta unexpectedly opts to switch to a six-man rotation.
Atlanta recalled Wilson from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays.
Wilson will likely be up with Atlanta for just one start, as skipper Brian Snitker wanted to skip Drew Smyly's turn in the rotation for a matchup with the Blue Jays after Toronto pummeled the lefty for six runs (five earned) in four innings back on April 30. Relying on Wilson to turn in dramatically better results than Smyly against Toronto may be wishful thinking; the 24-year-old righty has surrendered four home runs and posted an underwhelming 6:5 K:BB in 12 innings at the big-league level in 2021.
Wilson was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.
Wilson started Thursday against the Cubs and took the loss after giving up four runs over three innings, and he's now surrendered 14 runs across 11 frames on the season. Sean Newcomb (COVID-19 protocols) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move, and Edgar Santana was also promoted for bullpen depth.
Wilson (1-2) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Cubs after surrendering four runs on seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out one batter across three innings.
As expected, Wilson covered a few innings as Atlanta's pseudo-opener. The 23-year-old got off to a rocky start, ending Chicago's 20-inning scoreless streak by giving up an RBI single to Kris Bryant in the first inning and then balking a run in. Trouble struck again with another pair of runs in his third and final frame of the night. On the season, Wilson has compiled a 6.75 ERA and 1.92 WHIP across 12 innings.
Wilson will start Thursday against the Cubs on three days rest, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The 21-year-old is expected to cover a few innings as a pseudo-opener for Thursday's series finale after starting Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader and throwing 61 pitches across four innings. Wilson has allowed five runs on 11 hits with a 5:3 K:BB through nine innings this season.
Wilson (1-1) was tagged with the loss in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks. He gave up three runs on four hits and two walks while fanning four across four innings.
Wilson didn't have his best stuff Sunday and gave up two homers -- Stephen Vogt took him deep in the second, and Kole Calhoun did the same thing in the third. The 23-year-old right-hander now owns a 5.00 ERA through his first two starts of the campaign, and he's failed to pitch more than five innings in any of his outings to date. His next scheduled start is slated for Saturday against Toronto in Florida.
Wilson is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale with the Diamondbacks in Atlanta, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Atlanta will get Drew Smyly (forearm) back from the injured list Saturday to fortify a banged-up rotation, but Max Fried's (hamstring) ongoing absence will pave the way for Wilson to pick up a second start. Wilson wasn't dominant by any means in his season debut last weekend against the Cubs, but he came away with the win after giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out one over five innings.
Wilson picked up a win in his 2021 debut Sunday, working five innings and giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out one in a 13-4 win over the Cubs.
Atlanta called Wilson up from its taxi squad and moved him into the rotation as a replacement for Max Fried (hamstring), who was placed on the injured list Wednesday. The 23-year-old right-hander didn't dazzle in his first start, but he pounded the zone (50 of his 69 pitches were strikes) and was mostly able to limit the damage while being staked to a big lead for most of the night. With both Fried and Drew Smyly (forearm) on the IL, Wilson should make at least one more turn through the rotation. Wilson's next turn will likely come against the Diamondbacks during the upcoming weekend.
Wilson was recalled from the alternate training site Saturday.
Wilson was sent down in late March but was expected to return sometime in mid-April when the team needed a fifth starter. That has indeed happened, though Wilson could potentially stick around longer than originally planned, as Max Fried (hamstring) and Drew Smyly (forearm) have joined Mike Soroka (Achilles/shoulder) on the injured list.
Wilson was optioned to Atlanta's alternate site on Friday but is expected to serve as the team's fifth starter once one is eventually needed, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Atlanta has a rotation spot open at least until Mike Soroka returns from Achilles surgery, which won't happen until at least late April. Early off days mean the team won't need a fifth starter right away, but Wilson should at least get a few turns in the rotation before Soroka returns.
Wilson allowed one run on five hits and three walks over 4.2 innings while striking out three during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.
The right-hander took a line drive off the calf from the first batter of the game, Enrique Hernandez, but Wilson stayed on the mound and was able to regain his focus. Atlanta will need someone to fill a rotation spot to begin the season with Mike Soroka (Achilles) still in the final stages of his recovery, and Wilson's resilience Saturday almost certainly helped his case. He has a 1.98 ERA and 9:4 K:BB through 13.2 innings this spring, but his main competition, Kyle Wright (4.09 ERA, 10:5 K:BB through 11 innings) has also been solid.
Wilson earned the win in Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers after giving up one run on one hit with five strikeouts and one walk over six innings Thursday.
It was the first postseason appearance of the 22-year-old's career, and he allowed only a single run via a solo homer from Edwin Rios. Wilson had a 4.02 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 15:9 K:BB over 15.2 innings during the regular season, but he may have earned the chance to start another playoff game, if Atlanta can complete the series win and advance to the World Series.
The Braves excluded Wilson from the 28-man roster for their NL Wild Card Series with the Reds that began Wednesday.
Atlanta only needs a three-man rotation for its three-game series, so Wilson found himself as the odd man out with the Braves expected to turn to Max Fried, Ian Anderson and Kyle Wright for starts. Wilson could be a candidate to rejoin the postseason roster in the divisional round, should the Braves win their series with the Reds.
Wilson went three innings as the starter in Sunday's game against the Red Sox. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out two in the no-decision.
Boston won with a final score of 9-1, but it was not Wilson who let the game get out of hand. He was adequate in his three frames and has made a case for the playoff roster with a 1.13 ERA in his final eight innings of the regular season. Look for Wilson to be a part of the rotation battle next spring.
Wilson is scheduled to start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Red Sox, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Wilson made his first start of 2020 earlier this week against the Marlins and gave an injury-plagued Atlanta rotation a much-needed shot in the arm, covering five scoreless frames while striking out seven. On the back of that performance, Wilson will unsurprisingly earn another start, and how he fares Sunday could dictate whether he's included on the postseason roster. Atlanta will likely attempt to get by with a three- or four-man rotation during the playoffs, leaving Wilson and fellow youngsters Kyle Wright and Tucker Davidson to battle for starting roles behind Max Fried and Ian Anderson.
Wilson (1-0) threw five scoreless innings on Tuesday, giving up three hits and a walk while striking out seven in an 11-1 win over the Marlins.
Making just his fifth appearance and his first start of the season, Wilson threw 50 of 77 pitches for strikes. It was his first outing without giving up a run in 2020. The 22-year-old is a fringe top-five prospect for the Braves and is still just 22 years old. He will have a chance to compete for a rotation spot in 2021. Wilson may draw the start Sunday against the Red Sox.
Wilson will start Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Wilson was recalled Monday afternoon, and he won't need to wait long before seeing big-league action. He's appeared in four games so far this season, posting a 7.04 ERA and 2.09 WHIP with six punchouts across 7.2 frames.
Wilson was recalled by Atlanta on Monday.
Wilson will rejoin the major-league pitching staff after Cole Hamels (shoulder) was placed on the injured list Monday. The right-hander has solely appeared out of the bullpen, but his past work as a starter could make him a strong candidate to start in Hamels' place Tuesday.
Wilson was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site Thursday.
Wilson served out of the bullpen while Max Fried (back) was sidelined, but he'll return to the alternate training site after Fried was reinstated from the injured list Thursday. Across three appearances during his most recent stint on the active roster, Wilson earned one save as he allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings.
