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.
Wilson allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out a batter across four innings Wednesday as he picked up the save over the Marlins.
This was not any ordinary save opportunity for Wilson as he came into the game in the sixth with the Braves already leading 22-8. He gave up his only run on a Jorge Alfaro single in the seventh and got Jazz Chisholm to pop out out the very next at-bat to escape a bases-loaded jam. Wilson has now made two appearances since being recalled Sept. 6 and has given up three runs on eight hits and two walks while only managing two strikeouts in five innings.
Wilson was recalled from the Braves' alternate training site Sunday.
He will take the roster spot of Chad Sobotka, who was sent down following Saturday's game. This marks Wilson's second stint with the big-league team this year; he gave up two runs and walked four over 1.2 innings in his lone appearance back on Aug. 11. There's still some hope for Wilson as a starter long term, but he will likely work out of the bullpen again this time around, pitching mostly unimportant innings.
Wilson was optioned to the Braves' alternate training site Wednesday.
The 22-year-old was recalled by the Braves last week and made one appearance during his time with the team, allowing two runs on one hit and four walks over 1.2 innings. Wilson could still rejoin the Braves later in the year, but for now he'll head back to the alternate training site.
Wilson worked 1.2 innings in relief during Tuesday's 9-6 loss to the Yankees, giving up two runs on one hit and four walks while striking out two.
After starter Touki Toussaint needed 86 pitches to record 12 outs, Wilson was called upon to provide some length out of the bullpen in his season debut. The right-hander struggled to locate his offerings, pumping in only 25 of his 52 pitches for strikes while giving up a solo home run to Aaron Judge. The Braves will have a need for a fifth starter during next week's series with the Nationals, but Wilson's wretched showing Tuesday may have temporarily taken him out of the mix for a spot in the rotation.
Wilson was recalled by the Braves on Tuesday.
Wilson will take Sean Newcomb's spot on the roster after the lefty was optioned following an awful outing against the Phillies on Monday, though it's not yet clear if he'll be taking Newcomb's spot in the rotation. Wilson has some prospect pedigree but has yet to put things together in a small sample of 27 big-league innings, posting a 7.00 ERA while striking out 17.5 percent of opposing batters and walking 12.7 percent.
Wilson is one of the top candidates to start Saturday in Philadelphia, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
O'Brien is only guessing here, as Atlanta is still undecided. He also notes that the team could go with an opener and make it a bullpen game. While Wilson is a fine prospect, he has not had much success as a big-league starter (5.56 ERA in 22.2 innings). Ian Anderson, who is not on the 40-man roster, and Tucker Davidson, who is on the 40-man roster, are probably more intriguing options for fantasy purposes.
Wilson could see consistent usage on the Atlanta staff this season if rosters are expanded beyond 26 players, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 22-year-old right-hander failed to win a rotation spot during training camp and had already been optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett when baseball was put on pause, but Wilson would be one of the top candidates to handle a long relief or sixth starter role for the team, along with Kyle Wright and Touki Toussaint. Wilson has struggled in his brief tastes of the majors so far, but he posted a solid 3.42 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 118:26 K:BB in 121 innings for Gwinnett last year.
Wilson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
The 22-year-old was attempting to earn a spot in Atlanta's starting rotation for Opening Day, but he'll instead begin his 2020 campaign in Gwinnett. Wilson struggled with a 7.20 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB in four starts (20 innings) in the majors last season, and he figures to receive the call at some point again this year.
Wilson worked two innings in his spring debut Sunday against the Tigers, giving up two runs on four hits and recording no strikeouts.
Along with Kyle Wright, Sean Newcomb and non-roster invitee Felix Hernandez, Wilson will be a candidate for one of the two openings in the Atlanta rotation heading into the season. The 22-year-old righty didn't make a strong early case for a rotation spot, as he surrendered four consecutive one-out singles in the first inning to put Atlanta in early hole. Wilson recovered with a perfect second frame, but he'll need to find more consistency in his future spring starts if he hopes to break camp with the big club.
Wilson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
Wilson was sent back to Triple-A in early September to pitch in the International League playoffs and now rejoins the Braves for the stretch run. The 21-year-old has a 7.20 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB through 20 major-league innings this season.
Wilson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett following Tuesday's game against Toronto.
It's a bit of an odd move, as the Braves have no reason to clear a spot due to the expanded September rosters. Perhaps the team simply felt they weren't going to use him the rest of the way. He got knocked around for a pair of runs in 1.1 innings in Tuesday's contest and owns a poor 7.20 ERA in 20 total innings on the season.
Wilson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Wilson owns a 6.75 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over 18.2 innings with the big-league club this season, and he'll get another chance to pitch for Atlanta after rosters expanded to 40 on Sunday.
