Reliever Brian Wilson activated by Dodgers

MIAMI (AP) - Former All-Star closer Brian Wilson was activated Monday from the disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers after being sidelined since April 2012 because of an elbow injury.
Wilson, mounting a comeback from Tommy John surgery, was available for the start of the Dodgers' series at Miami. Outfielder Scott Van Slyke was optioned back to Triple-A Albuquerque.
The Dodgers' bullpen has been the best in the majors since the All-Star break, and manager Don Mattingly said Wilson's role was yet to be determined.
``We're going to get him out there and see,'' Mattingly said. ``This guy hasn't pitched in a long time. We know what he has been able to do in the past. We know he's not going to be afraid. He has been there before. We want to get him in the mix and see what it looks like.''
Wilson made four scoreless appearances during a minor league rehab assignment. The Dodgers signed him after he was non-tendered by the San Francisco Giants last winter.
