The Angels have signed 31-year old lefty starting pitcher C.J. Wilson to a 5-year, $75 million dollar contract. Wilson pitched in 34 games (all starts) for the Rangers last year and he was 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. He whiffed 206 batters in 223 1/3 innings last year while giving up 191 hits and walking only 74 batters. He really tightened up his control in his second season as a starting pitcher. Wilson has pitched in 325 games (73 starts) in his first 7 years in the majors and he is 43-35 with 52 saves, a 3.60 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Wilson will probably be the Angels’ #3 starter between Dan Haren and Ervin Santana. The Angels’ rotation is stacked now! The Angels helped themselves while hurting the division rival Texas Rangers, so I love this move for them.
