Wilson showing Angels he's ready to return

ANAHEIM -- Bobby Wilson couldn't have done much more on Friday night to let the Angels know he's ready to resume his backup-catcher duties.

Wilson, who will remain with Triple-A Salt Lake through the weekend, had a perfect night in the batter's box against Round Rock and was impressive behind the plate, according to Angels manager Mike Scisocia.

"We got some video, and he was throwing the ball very well," Scioscia said before Saturday's game against the A's. "His ankle is fine. He's going to catch tonight and DH tomorrow. Then we'll evaluate where he is."

Wilson unloaded a two-run homer and also had two hits and a key sacrifice bunt in a 5-4 victory. He was injured in an April 23 home-plate collision with Yankees (and former Angels) first baseman Mark Teixeira, sustaining a concussion along with a left ankle sprain.

Wilson isn't the only familiar name who had a big game for the Bees on Friday night. Robb Quinlan went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, running his hitting streak to nine games.
