Last season he was limited to 83 games due to a pair of stints on the disabled list with lower back soreness.

Wilson, 32, posted a 3.36 ERA (61.2IP, 50H, 23ER, 43SO, .223 avg) in 59 games with Detroit last season, limiting right-handed hitters to a .191 (25/131) average against. He was named Detroit’s Pitcher of the Month in September and posted a 0.71 ERA (1ER/12.2IP) over his last 14 appearances to conclude the campaign. The Texas A&M alum began his professional career in 2009 in the Red Sox organization (77th overall pick, 2nd rd., First-Year Player Draft) and debuted with Boston in 2013. He is a veteran of six Major League seasons and over four campaigns with the Tigers he has posted a 3.20 ERA in 246 games (264.2IP, 246H, 94ER).
