Wilson signed a contract to play on the LG Twins of the Korea Baseball Organization in 2018, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 28-year-old righty was recently outrighted off the Orioles' 40-man roster, which is a bad sign for any aspiring starting pitcher. Instead of laboring in the minors, he took the security of a guaranteed deal overseas. He has a career 5.02 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 145.1 MLB innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Wilson spent the 2015 season as a long reliever and occasional replacement starter for the Orioles. He entered 2016 in the same role, but was afforded more starting opportunities as the other pitchers in the rotation faced various injuries and struggled throughout the year. Wilson, who primarily pitches to contact and features a fastball that tops out around 91 mph, performed about as well as you would expect for a replacement starter in one of the league's worst starting rotations. Wilson posted a 5.27 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, 13.3 percent strikeout rate and 5.8 percent walk rate over 94 innings. He showed occasional signs of life, including an eight-inning shutout against the Red Sox, but was typically an unreliable option. He will likely serve in the same role again in 2017, offering very little for owners in the process.
After spending the last half of 2014 at Triple-A, Wilson spent the first half of 2015 at the same level before the Orioles called him up when injuries devastated the big league rotation. Wilson held his own and turned in quality performances in three of his five MLB starts. However, he had middling strikeout rates both in the majors and at Triple-A. Despite pitching to contact, Wilson allowed only one home run in 36 innings with the Orioles thanks to a 52 percent groundball rate. Wilson has to make some adjustments, but he has four pitches and may have an outside chance at a rotation spot or perhaps the swingman role in spring training.
It's easy to get lost in the shuffle in an organization with pitching prospects the likes of Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey and Tim Berry, but Wilson has been quietly making a name for himself over the past year and a half. The right-hander enjoyed success at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk as a 24-year-old in 2014, finishing with a combined 14 wins and 157 strikeouts, both tops among Orioles minor leaguers. Thus, it was only fitting that he received the club's Minor League Pitcher of the Year honors. His ERA, WHIP and strikeout percentage all improved with the move up to Norfolk in early July, making the relatively modest bump in his walk rate acceptable (from 2.0 BB/9 to 2.7 BB/9). Wilson figures open 2015 back at Norfolk, but he is now on the Orioles' 40-man roster and will be on the short list of spot-start/injury-replacement candidates during the season.
