Well, if its a 'wild pitch' by definition the pitcher has thrown a pitch which in the scorer's judgment could NOT be fielded by the catcher. Nevertheless, when a catcher is trying to field a pitch he will always try to keep the ball in front of him to make it hit his chest protector. If its to his right, the next question is where the batter is standing. If its a right handed hitter, the catcher will just throw, but if its a left handed hitter, theoretically the catcher may not have a clear throwing line to third and will most likely step forward to make the throw.
