Arlington, Texas - The Texas Rangers recalled LMU's C.J. Wilson (2001) Tuesday, July 18. The left-handed Wilson, who made his major league debut with the Rangers in 2005, made four appearances against teams from the most recent three World Series.
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.
Wilson then made two appearances against the Yankees in Arlington. In the combined two innings of work, Wilson held the Yankees scoreless on just one hit, while striking out three.
Combined with his major league statistics from April 15-May 31, Wilson has tallied a 1-2 record with a 4.37 ERA this season. His effort Friday night against the White Sox gave him his third hold of 2006.
