The Angels are making C.J. Wilson available in trade, potentially aiming for bigger pitching talent like Jon Lester, Max Scherzer, and James Shields, who are available in free agency. (Source: CBC Sports' Jon Heyman)

Fantasy Impact: After a fantastic 2013 campaign, going 17-7 with a 3.39 ERA, Wilson struggled in 2014, going 13-10 with a 4.51 ERA. A fair projection for the 34 year-old is a 12-8 record, pitching about 180 innings with 3.95 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 2015. At this point Wilson is a third or fourth SP. although this could change if he gets traded to a less hitter-friendly division. Wilson's availability should stimulate the pitching market and is a storyline to watch.
