Giants Injury News: San Francisco Expected to Non-Tender Brian Wilson

The San Francisco Giants and former closer Brian Wilson are “not exactly seeing eye to eye” when it comes to contract talks, and the club could non-tender the right-hander later this week, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

From what I hear, Wilson and the team are not exactly seeing eye to eye.

Wilson missed a majority of the 2012 season after undergoing his second Tommy John surgery of his career last spring. He’s said he expects to be ready to go when the Giants begin spring training 2013, and he’s yet to experience any setbacks in his rehab.

Still, the Giants and Wilson are not seeing eye to eye when it comes to his next contract. Because he earned $8.5 million last season, the least amount of money San Francisco can offer Wilson is $6.8 million. This isn’t a commitment they’re interested in making, which would lead to his being non-tendered by the club.

If he is let go, Wilson would become a free agent and could sign with whatever club he chooses. He would have the option of re-signing with the Giants, but if negotiations don’t go well he is likely to explore his market first.

  1. Would love to see BW back but not worth the cost. The G's proved they could win without him which lowered his stock. Besides, I don't think anyone "fears the beard" any longer!

    1. I think people may start fearing Sergio Romo's beard...and his ability.

    2. Talk about a shot to your ego. You go down to injury and your team just goes on to win the World Series.
