Brian Wilson officially began his Dodgers career last night with a scoreless inning at Single-A, retiring all three batters he faced in his first game action since Tommy John elbow surgery last year.
Wilson struck out one batter and threw eight total pitches, with Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reporting that he topped out at 91 miles per hour with his fastball. Prior to the elbow injury Wilson typically averaged 94-95 miles per hour with his fastball.
When asked about his timetable for getting back to the majors Wilson indicated that he expects to make at least a half-dozen more appearances in the minors.
