The news goes from bad to worse for the Angels, who already are having issues with Jered Weaver. Now, according to Mike DiGovanna of the LA Times, lefty C.J. Wilson has hit another setback in his return from a sore shoulder. The setback puts into question Wilson's status for the first month of the season.
Back in August, Wilson underwent season-ending surgery that removed bone-chips from his elbow. During his latest throwing session off of a bullpen mound on Saturday, Wilson felt more discomfort in his shoulder. The plan is for him to play catch for no, with no real timetable for him to return to throwing bullpen sessions.
