ARLINGTON -- The Rangers will get another shot at former teammate C.J. Wilson this coming weekend in Anaheim. The Angels are lined up to pitch Jerome Williams, Wilson and Jered Weaver during the three-game series that starts on Friday in Anaheim. That will be their rotation as long as manager Mike Scioscia doesn't use a day off on Thursday to skip Williams in their rotation. Williams is the Angels' fifth starter, but he is also 5-2 with a 3.81 ERA in eight starts and one relief appearance. He earned his fifth victory in a 5-3 win over Seattle on Saturday.
Wilson was scheduled to pitch on Sunday against the Mariners. The Angels then have a three-game series against the Yankees in Anaheim with Weaver, Dan Haren and Ervin Santana scheduled to pitch. Wilson pitched against the Rangers on May 12 and allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings. He was not involved in the decision in the Angels' 4-2 victory. He had started the night before as well, allowing four runs in one-third of an inning but did not return after a lengthy rain delay.
