Brewers' Justin Wilson: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Wilson (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.
The move has no impact on Wilson's return timeline, as he isn't expected to be back from Tommy John surgery until the second half of the season. The transaction clears space on Milwaukee's 40-man roster for the team to select Joey Wiemer's contract.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Justin Wilson: Placed on IL
The Brewers placed Wilson (elbow) on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Wilson required Tommy John surgery last June and won't be an option for the Milwaukee bullpen until the second half of the 2023 regular season. He signed with Milwaukee in February on a one-year, $1 million contract with a $2.5 million club option for 2024.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Justin Wilson: Progressing nicely in rehab
Wilson (elbow) began a flat-ground throwing program and has been "progressing nicely," Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Wilson signed with the Brewers in February while in the process of recovering from the Tommy John procedure he underwent in June. The team still expects the veteran reliever to return in July, at which point he will likely give the Brewers some bullpen depth and see most of his appearances during low-leverage scenarios....

Brewers' Justin Wilson: Lands with Milwaukee
Wilson (elbow) signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Brewers on Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. The contract includes a $2.5 million club option for 2024.
Brewers general manager Matt Arnold said that Wilson likely won't pitch until July while he recovers from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last June. Wilson threw only 3.2 innings at the MLB level last season prior to suffering the elbow injury and hasn't thrown more than 40 in a season since 2018, but he's been effective enough when available, posting a 3.74 ERA over the last four years....

Reds' Justin Wilson: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Wilson underwent Tommy John surgery Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Wilson had been sidelined with an elbow injury since late April, and he moved to the 60-day injured list in late May. Following Friday's procedure, the southpaw will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2022 season and most or all of the 2023 campaign. It's a discouraging development for the 34-year-old, who had been effective over a limited sample in 2022, allowing just one run on three hits and no walks while striking out seven in 3.2 relief innings....

Reds' Justin Wilson: Shifts to 60-day IL
Wilson (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

Reds' Justin Wilson: Placed on 10-day IL
Wilson was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to April 24.
Wilson pitched just once in the last week, and he's apparently dealing with an elbow issue that will force him to miss at least a week and a half. The severity of his injury isn't yet known, but the Reds selected the contract of Phillip Diehl to provide another left-handed arm in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Wilson: Potential closer candidate
Wilson is part of a large group of pitchers who could close games for the Reds this season according to manager David Bell, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Lucas Sims looked like the top candidate but will open the season on the injured list due to elbow troubles. Wilson has 18 career saves, but the 34-year-old doesn't look like the same guy he was at his peak. He stumbled to a career-high 5.29 ERA and a career-low 19.5 percent strikeout rate in 34 innings last season.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Wilson: Opts in for 2022
Wilson has exercised his player option and will remain with the Reds for next season.
Wilson will be owed $2.3 million next year. The lefty struggled to a 7.50 ERA in 18 innings for the Yankees to start the year but posted a 2.81 ERA in 16 frames after midseason trade to the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Wilson: Traded to Cincinnati
Wilson and Luis Cessa were acquired by the Reds from the Yankees on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later.
Wilson joined the Yankees on a one-year deal during the offseason, but he was unable to find much consistency in 21 outings with a 7.50 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. The veteran lefty, who hasn't had an ERA over 3.70 since 2016, will attempt to rediscover his old form with a new team.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Justin Wilson: Implodes versus Mets
Wilson allowed five runs on four hits and one walk without retiring a batter in Saturday's loss to the Mets.
The left-hander was called upon in the sixth inning with the Mets ahead by three runs. Wilson couldn't keep the game close, allowing three straight singles followed by a walk and a double before departing with the Yankees down 6-0. Both baserunners he passed on to Michael King soon came around to score, and Wilson was charged with five total runs in the outing. His season ERA jumped to an ugly 8.79 as a result, and he has given up at least one earned run in three of his past four appearances.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Justin Wilson: Returns with scoreless frame
Wilson pitched a perfect inning, notching one strikeout Wednesday against the Angels.
Following an extended rain delay, Wilson was brought in to relieve starter Domingo German in the fourth inning. The left-hander made easy work of the three batters he faced, needing only 10 pitches to set the side down in order. Wilson should settle back into the team's bullpen plans moving forward, though he may not receive frequent high-leverage opportunities -- through 16 appearances, he has logged just two holds and one save....

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Reinstated from injured list
Wilson (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Wilson made three rehab appearances at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he'll be available out of the big-league bullpen Wednesday.

Wilson (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Angels, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Wilson made his third rehab appearance Sunday at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he should rejoin the big-league club Tuesday.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Slated for another rehab outing
Wilson (hamstring) is expected to make his third minor-league rehab appearance Sunday, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports.

Yankees' Justin Wilson: Cleared for rehab assignment
The Yankees assigned Wilson (hamstring) to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.
Wilson has been on the shelf since late May with a right hamstring strain, so he'll presumably require at least one or two tune-up outings in the minors before being brought back from the 10-day injured list. Prior to being shut down, Wilson appeared in 15 games out of the Yankees bullpen, giving up nine earned runs on 13 hits and six walks over 13.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
