Recently retired Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson hopes to throw a strike with his Beverly Hills mansion, after a 20 percent price drop.

The athlete — who is now focused on his auto racing team, C.J. Wilson Racing — first listed his Benedict Canyon Drive mansion for $25 million in September, The Real Deal has learned. He dropped the asking price to $19.9 million, or $2,000 a square foot, last month.

The 10,000-square-foot property has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a theater. It includes a private guest suite with its own entrance. Automated smart home technology controls the entire mansion, which also has an infinity pool and four-car garage, according to the listing.

Wilson purchased the site in 2012 for $2.8 million, according to property records.

Listing agent Shervin Rafii of Keller Williams Newport Beach said renovations on the home wrapped up last year.

It was not intended to be a spec mansion, he said, adding that Wilson renovated the property to make it more private and secluded.

Wilson recently listed another home, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He put his 3,400-square-foot home in the Spyglass Hill neighborhood of Corona del Mar on the market for $2.7 million this month.

Rafii also holds that listing.

The 36-year-old left-handed pitcher also recently purchased BMW, Audi and Porsche dealerships in Fresno.

Wilson announced his retirement earlier this month in media interviews and on his personal Twitter account. He had not pitched in the major leagues since 2015 due to nagging shoulder injuries.
