Bobby Wilson has been signed by the Detroit Tigers to a one-year Minor League contract for the 2019 season with an invitation to Spring Training. Wilson is an 11-year veteran who spent most of last season as a backup backstop in Minnesota.
Wilson never has and likely never will have any fantasy relevance, but he is a very solid veteran backup catcher. He's much more defensively-skilled than offensively-skilled, hence his .208 career batting average.
Bobby Wilson has been acquired in a trade of backup catchers in exchange for Chris Gimenez (and either a PTBNL or cash). He is batting .178 and is 35 years old but is known to be loved by the pitchers he catches.
Wilson will be the Cubs third catcher and has little offensive impact. He fits with the real-life team but doesn't belong on most fantasy rosters.
Bobby Wilson went 1-for-4 with an RBI double Saturday as the Twins topped the Royals 8-2.
Wilson is now squarely in the backup catching role behind Mitch Garver, so he isn't worth owning in standard formats.
Bobby Wilson went 1-for-3 Sunday with an RBI single as the Twins topped the White Sox 2-0.
The veteran Wilson is not worth a roster spot in most fantasy formats. His only current relevance is as a buy low DFS candidate, but make sure he will be behind the plate before you lock him in.
Bobby Wilson went 1-for-4 Wednesday with a double as the Twins fell to the Royals 8-11. Wilson also scored a run.
Wilson doesn't have much value in season-long formats but has enough offensive ability to be a budget DFS catcher when he's in the Twins' lineup.
