Steven Christopher Wilson (born August 24, 1994) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut in 2022.
After signing with the Padres, Wilson made his professional debut with the Lake Elsinore Storm of the Class A-Advanced California League, but after two games were reassigned to the Tri-City Dust Devils of the Class-A Short Season Northwest League.
Over eight innings pitched between the two clubs, he compiled a 7.88 ERA. In 2019, Wilson returned to Lake Elsinore to begin the year before being promoted to the El Paso Chihuahuas of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League, with whom he finished the season.
He did not play a minor league game in 2020 due to the cancellation of the minor league season caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. That winter, he played in the Dominican Professional Baseball League (LIDOM). To begin the 2021 season, Wilson returned to El Paso.
He was placed on the injured list in mid-May and was activated in early July. Over thirty relief appearances, Wilson went 4–0 with a 3.21 ERA and 71 strikeouts over 42 innings. He returned to LIDOM after the season.
On November 19, 2021, the Padres selected Wilson’s contract and added him to the 40-man roster. He was named to the team’s Opening Day roster to start the 2022 season. He made his MLB debut on April 9, throwing one scoreless inning of relief.
