Giants Non-Tender Brian Wilson

The San Francisco Giants have non-tendered former closer Brian Wilson, who missed most of the 2012 season due to injury, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Giants decided to tender contracts to all other players up for consideration, including Sergio Romo, Hunter Pence, Gregor Blanco and Buster Posey. However, the team opted to cut ties with Wilson as they determined his expected 2013 salary of at least $6.8 million was too much for a veteran player returning from a major injury.

Wilson damaged a ligament in his throwing arm during his second appearance of the 2012 season. He went on to collect the save, but he hasn’t returned to the mound for the Giants since sustaining the injury.
While teams can renegotiate with players even after non-tendering them, Schulman added that Wilson isn't expected to re-sign with San Francisco.

Over seven seasons with the Giants Wilson has posted an ERA of 3.21 while collecting 171 saves.
