Steven Wilson names the only guitar he's “ever truly loved”

“I always thought of guitars as tools... until I got this one,” the Porcupine Tree leader says of the “Rolls-Royce” of his collection. Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson might be a guitarist at heart, but his approach to the six-string is that it's anything but sacred. “It's about thinking more of the guitar as a sound source, which is there to be processed,” he told Australian Guitar last year.

Padres option Steven Wilson to Triple-A to make room for Tim Hill

The San Diego Padres announced earlier today that they’re activating Tim Hill from the 15-day IL and optioning Steven Wilson to Triple-A El Paso. Have you ever seen a move the Padres have made that kind of come out of nowhere? This one fits under this category for me because I’d almost forgotten about Tim Hill.

Padres' Steven Wilson: Optioned to Triple-A

Wilson was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday. Wilson saw some high-leverage opportunities during his time with the major-league club, and he was rewarded with three wins and five holds. However, he converted just one of his three save chances and will head to the minors after Tim Hill (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Friday. If Wilson performs well in El Paso, it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the Padres at some point.

Padres' Steven Wilson: Secures fifth hold

Wilson earned a hold against Atlanta on Friday by allowing no runs over two-thirds of an inning. He surrendered one hit and struck out one. When Wilson came on in the eighth inning, the Padres were up by only one run. The right-hander retired the first two batters he faced before allowing a single and subsequently being replaced by closer Taylor Rogers, who wrapped up the frame. Wilson's scoreless outing was his fourth straight after he gave up two runs April 30 against Pittsburgh. The right-hander has compiled a 2.51 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB across 14.1 innings on the season. He has racked up three wins, five holds and one save through 14 outings.

Padres' Steven Wilson: Notches first save

Wilson saved Friday's 3-2 win against the Marlins, allowing one hit and one walk in the ninth inning. With Taylor Rogers unavailable, manager Bob Melvin turned to the rookie Wilson for the save and the 27-year-old delivered despite some traffic on the bases. He let the first two batters reach base in the ninth inning but proceeded to retire the next three to secure the victory. In 12 games, Wilson has recorded 15 strikeouts compared to five walks in 12 innings with a 3.00 ERA.

Steven Wilson is the best-kept secret in the Padres bullpen thus far

Steven Wilson has been one of the best surprises out of the Padres bullpen this season. A look behind what has led to his strong start. Not only one of the best stories within the San Diego Padres organization but the entire league – Steven Wilson‘s journey to the big leagues is nothing short of spectacular. The 27-year-old made his big league debut this season after being drafted in the eighth round of the 2018 MLB draft. Wilson lost two seasons at Santa Clara University, one to a shoulder injury and another to Tommy John surgery. He settled for a $5,000 signing bonus as a sixth-year senior.

Padres' Steven Wilson: Hurls two stellar relief innings

Wilson pitched two perfect innings against the Giants on Wednesday, striking out five of the six batters he faced. Sean Manaea was impressive in his six frames as a starter in the contest, and Wilson came on to relieve him in the seventh with San Francisco holding a one-run lead. Though the Padres were unable to muster a late-inning comeback, Wilson held the Giants at bay with two perfect frames during which he threw 21 of 26 pitches for strikes and fanned the final five batters to stand in against him. The impressive outing included nine swinging strikes and first-pitch strikes to five of the six hitters he faced. Wilson appears to be climbing up the bullpen pecking order thanks to a strong start to the campaign. Thus far he has racked up two wins, posted a 7:2 K:BB and allowed just one run over four innings.

Such is the case with San Diego Padres pitcher Steven Wilson.
