Is CJ done for the year?


Recommended Posts

Surprised there is little talk about this.

@pedromoura: C.J. Wilson’s MRI results are in, but the Angels are not announcing them. In an unusual practice, Wilson himself will announce them tomorrow

This was posted in the DL thread, but I'm surprised this hasn't led to any discussion.

Tommy John surgery? Something worse? Dude must be done for the season, right?

This is not like the usual Angels protocol.

If so, it reduces the starter dilemma by one.

CJ Wilson is a trippy dude, he seems pretty happy in his life away from MLB..   He's got outside interests -- it would not be shocking in the least that if injured he just wanted to hang them up....   He could race his cars, sell his Mazdas and do whatever he wanted whenever he wanted.

Isn't Skaggs on track to return in Sept?

 

Nope. Skaggs apparently wants to pitch this year and the Angels management has stood firm on the original recovery plan, which is to get him back in 2016. According to this Fletcher article they've said that if he pitches anywhere in 2015 it will only be Instructional League. Smart of the Angels not to rush him, IMHO.

He's already had TJS in the past and has battled bone spurs in his pitching elbow on various different occasions. Hasn't he had fluid drained from his elbow multiple times as well? Sounds like it finally gave out again

 

If he needs TJS again, that may signal the end of his career tbh. At his age + having undergone the surgery twice....odds aren't great that he regains his form.

 

Would have been nice to have been able to move him in the offseason and free up some money but if he's getting TJS then obviously the Angels will have to pay him that full $20 million to rest and rehab all of next season

My thoughts are if he needs Tommy John he may just decide to retire.

I think this is what it is. All the CJ bashing will be over, and he will be gone. He does have all the racing and hair projects. I wish him the best. He's a good guy. Signed an auto last week for my younger daughter. Couldn't have been a nicer dude.

as in the very few other cases where a player retires while owed big money, i'll believe it when i see it.

 

If any player actually tried to retire while leaving money on the table in this day and age the MLBPA would plant a severed horse head on their mattress.

If he does require TJ, he won't pitch at all next year. If I remember correctly, next year is his contract year. If it is indeed TJ, he's probably pitched his last game as an Angel. Very interesting that he's announcing his own MRI results, and I think that's a telling sign that he's done. I wish him the best, he seems like a really nice dude.

Gil Meche did it -- 2011 maybe?   He was going to miss the entire season with an injury and instead chose to retire.  I know everyone likes to bag on Wilson but he's always been a little different, it wouldn't shock me to see him walk away and leave money on the table if he didn't feel he would be earning it.

I remember that, Meche was a class act. I don't think CJ will retire if he has a second TJ, but I think he's pitched his last game as a Halo. I think he'll try and come back and sign a minor league contract to be a bullpen guy for someone willing to take a chance on him.

Then again, he did just buy a nice ass house in SoCal, so maybe he does retire and just focuses on racing and family.

Either way, he's a nice dude, and I wish him the best. I don't wish injury on anyone, and while he was frustrating to watch, he was a decent pitcher.
