Brian Wilson Rumors: ‘Lots of Interest’ in Wilson

Though former closer Brian Wilson is not close to signing, there has been a lot of interest in the right-hander, reports Scott Miller of CBS Sports.

So far this offseason the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers have been tied to Wilson, who’s reportedly narrowed his list from nine or 10 teams to five or so.

Wilson appeared in two games for the Giants last season before requiring season-ending Tommy John surgery. Rather than pay his projected $8.5 million salary for 2013, San Francisco elected to non-tender the veteran right-hander.

Over seven seasons with the Giants, Wilson owns a career ERA and WHIP of 3.21 and 1.338 with 9.6 strikeouts and 4.0 walks per nine innings. The 30-year-old compiled 163 saves from 2008-11 with the Giants.

One Response to Brian Wilson Rumors: ‘Lots of Interest’ in Wilson

  1. I'm curious to see how he'll after the second surgery. From everything I read, the long-term prognosis after a second surgery is not nearly as good as after just one.
