RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2013

Wilson spent most of the 2012 season as the backup to Chris Iannetta in Anaheim and stumbled into some significant playing time after Iannetta suffered a broken wrist. Unfortunately for the Angels, Wilson was overmatched at the plate, producing a .211/.277/.292 batting line in 201 plate appearances. He's actually a pretty similar player to Jeff Mathis, and the Yankees will look at him during spring training as a non-roster invite.

2012

Wilson served as a reserve catcher for the Angels last season and appeared in 57 games. While the Angels kept three catchers on the roster for most of the season, a deeper roster may prevent them from doing the same in 2012. Chris Iannetta will be the Angels' regular catcher, so Wilson will either serve as his backup or head to Triple-A if the Angels want to keep Hank Conger with the big club for the part-time role.

2011

Wilson played in a career-high 40 games last year thanks to injuries to Jeff Mathis and Kendry Morales, but he still only managed to see 96 at-bats. With Mike Napoli back at catcher due to Morales' return, Mathis' ability to handle the pitching staff, and Hank Conger knocking on the door at Triple-A, Wilson is unlikely to see much major league time this season.

2010

Wilson is slightly better than Jeff Mathis, which is worth getting worked up about if you like the Angels a lot, but not useful information for fantasy players. Wilson is about to get lapped by Hank Conger, and will need a new organization to have any shot at, well, Jeff Mathis' career.

2009

Wilson batted .312 with four home runs and 45 RBI with Triple-A Salt Lake last season. He's currently the third catcher on the Angels' organizational depth chart, which means he will begin next season at Triple-A once again. However, starting catcher Mike Napoli has had trouble staying healthy in the past and Wilson could find himself in the majors if Napoli isn't able to stay on the field.

2008

Wilson showed last season that he has the potential to be a catcher at the major league level. He is very good defensively, and though his power numbers weren’t flashy, he still hit .295 at Triple-A Salt Lake. He doesn’t strike out much, but still could stand to do a better job of working the count after taking 30 walks all season. Wilson is behind several other catchers in the team's pipeline, so it will take a trade or an injury for him to see action with the Angels in 2008.

2007

Wilson doesn't hit as well as Mike Napoli or have the defensive tools to make you forget that he's a backup catcher just trying to get his card. As a backup, he might play ten years the way a guy like Todd Pratt has.

2005

A native of Dunedin, FL, Wilson was selected by the Angels in the 48th round of the 2002 free agent draft.
