Dodgers Rumors: Dodgers Emerge As Front Runner For Brian Wilson

Former Giants closer Brian Wilson is close to making a decision about where he’ll sign and the Dodgers have emerged as the front runners to land his services.

Wilson supposedly has offers form four NL teams and one AL team as the Pirates and Dodgers are the two teams known to still be vying for his services.

However, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Wilson is leaning towards signing with the Dodgers:

Wilson threw for scouts in LA last week and was reportedly impressive as the 31-year-old is trying to make it back from multiple Tommy John surgeries.

The Dodgers have been in the thick of the relief market leading up to the trade deadline as general manager Ned Colletti and president Stan Kasten look to add another power arm.

If he signs with the Dodgers, Wilson will be counted on as a late-inning reliever as the Dodger bullpen has significantly improved after imploding midway through the year.

It’s a low risk, high reward situation when it comes to signing Wilson, but if he gets back any form he had with the Giants, the Dodger bullpen will improve drastically.

  1. After Puig arrived in the dugout, the boys in blue have brought more attitude, more urgency, and more aggression to the game. PUIG IS THE DIFFERENCE MAKER! AZUL ALL DAY!!!!!

  2. Brian Wilson is a disgrace to the game. To now have him as a dodgers, I’m ashamed…I will never cheer for him even if he gets out… He’s disgusting on and off the field…he needs to clean up, and be a professional athlete that can be looked up to, and he’s non of these. I’m am a dodger fan always have been, but more teams need to take the Yankees as a professional classy organization on and off the field…they set a high example of professionalism that’s lacking in this game. Send Ned colletti back to San Fran with Wilson… That’s how I feel as a dodger fan…
