The Giants would need a minor miracle to make the playoffs at this point, but Brian Wilson may at least be able to go into the offseason with some peace of mind.
Wilson, who has been sidelined since August 15 due to right elbow inflammation, threw around 30 pitches in a successful simulated game yesterday. It was his second session against live hitters since being placed on the disabled list.
According to Nick Kosmider of MLB.com, Wilson is expected to meet with Giants manager Bruce Bochy and the training staff to discuss the next step, which could include activation before tonight’s game against the Rockies.
Wilson, 29, has a 3.19 ERA, 35 saves and a 52/31 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings this season.
