Giants rumors: Brian Wilson could return

While San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said general manager Brian Sabean decides which players the team signs, he wouldn’t call the “door’s closed” on free agent right-hander Brian Wilson, according to Chris Haft of

Emphasizing that Sabean decides which players to sign, Bochy said, "I can't say that [Wilson] will be back." But, Bochy added, "I can't say the door's closed on Brian Wilson. ... I don't think that's completely shut."

Last month, Sabean expressed doubt that San Francisco would re-sign Wilson, considering the “arduous rehabilitation” the team’s former closer is facing. Wilson continues to recover from his second Tommy John surgery.

However, Bochy said that he doesn’t think the door is completely shut when it comes to Wilson.
Still, it appears that it will take time for the Giants or any team to make a decision on Wilson, as his arm is still not back to full strength. Until this happens, the right-hander is likely to remain a free agent as he continues his rehab process.

Wilson has spent seven seasons with the Giants, five as the team’s closer. From 2008-11, the 30-year-old maintained a 3.00 ERA with a 2.65 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
