Mets Are Not Certain They Will Offer Contract to Brian Wilson

After watching him pitch and showing some interest, the New York Mets are not sure they will offer Brian Wilson a contract.  There is clearly some trepidation over the former San Francisco Giants' closer's elbow.

CBS New York says that the team is certainly interested as previously reported, but they are not ready to jump in and make a contract offer.  Wilson underwent the second Tommy John procedure of his career in April of last season.  He will not likely be ready for the 2013 season until May at the earliest.

The Mets' closer last season was Frank Francisco.  He underwent surgery to remove a bone chip in his elbow.  The team expects him to be ready for the start of the season, but they may want to have some options at closer.

If New York were to pursue Wilson, they would at least know what he is capable of.  Whether he can get back to the dominance he showed in San Francisco is another question altogether.  In seven seasons with the Giants, Wilson posted a 3.21 ERA and has racked up 171 saves.
