Wilson, who missed almost the entirety of the 2012 season after suffering an injury in the seasons early weeks was offered a contract by the San Francisco Giants this past offseason, but turned down the incentive laden deal. Wilson suggested that he wanted a guaranteed offer and decided he would wait until he was healthy to sign a contract.
Now a year plus removed from the injury, Wilson threw for scouts from the Pittsburgh Pirates, Arizona Diamondbacks, Oakland A’s, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies, St. Louis Cardinals and of course, his former Giants.
Not all teams were impressed though as Yahoo’s Tim Brown reports that about four National League teams and one American League team are interested in signing the eccentric closer, who plans to be back in a Major League bullpen by the middle of August:
Brian Wilson, who expects to be on a big-league mound by mid-August, has interest from 4 NL teams, 1 AL.
