Wiltse played eleven of his twelve major league seasons as a member of the Giants. In those eleven years, his best season came in 1908 when he had a WAR of 5.9. Wiltse went 23-14 that year and had an ERA of 2.24. He never won any awards, but still had an impressive career to say the least.
He finished his career as a Giant with a 139-90 record, 2.47 ERA, and was a member of the 1905 World Series champion team. He also never allowed more than nine home runs in a season.
