Brian Wilson to begin season on disabled list

Brian Wilson

After what we heard last night, it was pretty easy to see this one coming.

According to Jaymee Sire of CSN Bay Area, Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed earlier tonight that closer Brian Wilson will begin the season on the disabled list with an oblique strain. John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that an official announcement is expected sometime tomorrow.

Wilson has felt better in recent days, but it makes sense for the Giants to be extra cautious here. Because Wilson’s DL-stint can be backdated, it’s possible that he could be back as soon as April 6, which is the fifth game of the season. In other words, no big deal.

Bochy told Shea that Sergio Romo, Jeremy Affeldt and Javier Lopez will be used to fill-in during Wilson’s absence. Romo also has a crazy beard, so he’s my pick. Hey, I like consistency.
