C.J. Wilson was smoked on Tuesday, surrendering six runs — three earned — on nine hits over five innings of work against the A’s.
Wilson punched out four and walked five in the game. Mixed league owners shouldn’t panic — especially if their trade deadlines have passed — but Wilson’s recent performance should give pause. Since July 18, he has allowed 27 runs — 24 earned — in five starts covering 29 2/3 innings. During that span, his ERA has ballooned from 2.43 to 3.34.
