ALEX WILSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wilson benefits from midseason rest

When Tigers general manager Al Avila praised manager Brad Ausmus on Saturday for his work this season, his key example was bullpen management. It wasn't simply about managing veteran closer Francisco Rodriguez or the setup men Avila signed to help him, but guys like Alex Wilson, last year's do-everything reliever who has struggled for much of this season.

FN's Under The Radar Wilson Thrives In Motown

Alex Wilson While In Carmine HoseLast year, we tabbed Red Sox reliever Alex Wilson as FenwayNation's "Under The Radar" performer of 2014. In an otherwise dismal year, Wilson posted impressive stats out of the 'pen—28.1 IP, 1.91 ERA, 0.882 WHIP, 19 Ks, 5 BB. Then, Boston traded the 28-year old to the Tigers (along with Yoenis Cespedes) for Rick Porcello. This year, Wilson has continued...

Biggest Sox Trade Loss Might Be Alex Wilson

(USAToday Sports)It has gone almost completely unnoticed that RHP Alex Wilson was included in the package that netted the Red Sox Rick Porcello. Yoenis Cespdes was obviously the big chip that was moved for the right-handed starter, but Wilson may end up being the guy we regret sending to Detroit. In fact, FenwayNation awarded Wilson our 2014 "Under The Radar Award". Why? Wilson hurled...

Alex Wilson Is FN's 2014 'Under The Radar' Pick

Alex Wilson: 1-0, 1.19 ERA, 0.88 WHIPHe only appeared in 18 games for the 2014 Carmine Hose, and so relief pitcher Alex Wilson's contributions may have been missed by a lot of fans. For that reason, the editors of FenwayNation have awarded Wilson with the 2014 'Under The Radar' Award. In 28 innings pitched, Wilson gave up just 20 hits and finished with a stellar WHIP of 0.88. He...

Alex Wilson On Robinson Cano Hit-By-Pitch: ‘It Was An Accident’ (Video)

It’s not news that MLB pitchers sometimes retaliate against teams or specific players by plunking them in the backside with a pitch. Boston Red Sox pitcher Alex Wilson may or may not have done that in the seventh inning of Saturday’s contest against the Seattle Mariners. Wilson hit second baseman Robinson Cano, after David Ortiz was hit in the elbow by Charlie Furbush in the...

Red Sox Notes: Alex Wilson Plays Role Of Unsung Hero With Huge Effort

BOSTON — In an interesting twist, the Red Sox’s offense bailed them out Saturday. The Red Sox have struggled offensively for much of 2014, but Boston’s bats broke through for 13 hits in a 10-7 win over the Houston Astros at Fenway Park. David Ortiz led the way with a monster performance in which he drilled two home runs and racked up six RBIs. The Red Sox guaranteed at least...

Boston Red Sox: 4 Potential Trades, Buyers Edition

You hear that far-off rumbling in the distance? That’s the MLB trade deadline, and all the nonsense that comes along with it. There’s nothing quite like it in any sport: because of the sheer depth of trade assets that every team has (because of their minor league systems, in which they have the rights to trade any player), pretty much anything can happen, and star players can...

RHP Alex Wilson Called Up From Pawtucket

(AP Photo/Winslow Townson)The Red Sox announced today that right-handed pitcher Alex Wilson has been called up to the big club from Pawtucket. Wilson will provide John Farrell with an extra relief option—at least until newly-acquired Stephen Drew finishes his minor-league stint. The 27-year old Wilson (who, interestingly, was born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia), pitched 27 2/3 innings...

Alex Wilson Excited To Rejoin Boston Red Sox: Call-Up ‘A Great Feeling’

BOSTON — Alex Wilson’s call up to the Red Sox will be brief, but the reliever still is cherishing the opportunity. Wilson was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket before Wednesday’s game to give the Red Sox an additional pitcher after back-to-back games in which Boston’s bullpen was taxed. Wilson might only be with the Red Sox for one day — outfielder Shane Victorino is expected...

Why 2014 could be difficult for Boston Red Sox Alex Wilson

The Boston Red Sox clearly made adding to their bullpen a top priority this offseason and now have compiled enough depth to have one of the strongest bullpens in baseball. Despite that, it leaves the question where does former second rounder and right handed relief pitcher Alex Wilson fit into the mix for a possible spot in the bullpen. Wilson, who made his major league debut last...
