Brian Wilson reportedly being called up by Dodgers
FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are going to activate Brian Wilson on Monday. Wilson has not pitched in the majors since injuring his elbow at the beginning of the 2012 season. He has been rehabbing since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year.
The Dodgers signed Wilson after watching him work out in July. They offered him $1 million, put him on their major-league roster, and then placed him on the disabled list. He was sent to the minors for rehab, where he threw 4.1 scoreless innings.
The Dodgers planned all along to bring Wilson up to the club in mid-August, so this fits in well with their timetable. Though Wilson may not be throwing as hard as he did when he was a star with the San Francisco Giants, he should be able to give the Dodgers another good option in the pen.
The Dodgers are tied for the second-best record in the NL at 72-51.
