Arlington, Texas - The Texas Rangers recalled LMU's C.J. Wilson (2001) last Tuesday. The left-handed Wilson, who made his major league debut with the Rangers in 2005, made a pair of road appearances last week against the most recent two World Series Champions.
Wilson threw two-thirds of an inning last Thursday and Friday on the road. Thursday, he faced the Red Sox, holding Boston hitless in the seventh.
The next day in Chicago, Wilson held the White Sox to just one hit in the seventh, as Texas went on to the 10-3 win.
"We really need C.J. Wilson to come in and get left-handed people out, which he did Friday," Rangers' pitching coach Mark Connor said.
Combined with his major league statistics from April 15-May 31, Wilson has tallied a 1-2 record with two saves and a 4.79 ERA this season. His effort Friday night against the White Sox gave him his third hold of 2006.
