RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Wilson had a relatively successful 2011 season, his third year removed from Tommy John surgery. Most notably he kept opponents off base, decreasing his walks and hits. He says some grip adjustments allowed him to pitch effectively deeper into the season, though he he really needs to improve his changeup. He relies a lot on his fastball/slider repertoire. With the back end of Boston's rotation unsettled and as the club's starting depth exposed as a weakness last year, Wilson may get a call up at some point. There's still some sense that he ends up as a reliever, but he'll work as a starter at Triple-A Pawtucket and see if the improvements he made on his secondary stuff will continue.

2011

Wilson had his first full-season of minor-league ball in 2010, starting with High-A Salem and moving onto Double-A Portland. He was effective at the lower level, but hitters in Double-A proved to be more selective and capable of mashing his fastball when it was left up in the zone. The organization will be looking for him to stay on top of the fastball and work on the lower half of the strike zone. He also needs to establish better separation between his changeup and fastball. He'll open the 2011 season in Portland.

2010

Wilson, rebounding from Tommy John surgery in 2008, was kept to strict pitch-count in 2009. As such, the starter didn't pitch deep into games (2-3 innings). The 2010 season will be all about getting comfortable in professional baseball, while developing secondary pitches. He relies heavily on his fastball (92-93 mph), which he commands well and it could hit the mid-90s as he develops as a pitcher. The slider shows good potential, but his changeup needs work. Those secondary pitches are necessary as he faces more advanced competition than he did last season in the New York-Penn League, where he could use his fastball almost exclusively.
