Dodgers announce Wilson's signing
December 7, 2013
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Beard is staying in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers on Saturday announced they have signed free-agent reliever Brian Wilson to a $10 million, one-year deal to stay with the team. The deal includes an $8.5 million player option for 2015.
General manager Ned Colletti says that considering how well Wilson pitched down the stretch and in the postseason the team is glad to have him return.
Wilson, a right-hander and the 2010 major league saves leader while with San Francisco, joined the NL West champion Dodgers last season after a second Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery. He missed almost the entire 2012 season when the Giants won their second World Series in three years.
Wilson tossed scoreless relief in 17 of 18 regular season games, going 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA. The 31-year-old reliever was 1-0 and pitched six scoreless innings in six postseason appearances.
