Dodgers manager Don Mattingly avoided giving any sort of definitive answer regarding the team’s plans for Brian Wilson, but Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times writes that the former Giants closer will likely be called up at some point this weekend.
Wilson has appeared in four minor-league games since signing with the Dodgers, tossing 4.1 scoreless innings while holding opponents to a .071 batting average.
Wilson’s velocity reportedly hasn’t been at quite his pre-Tommy John surgery levels, but he’s said to be throwing in the low-90s. Initially when asked how long he expected to be in the minors Wilson guessed a half-dozen appearances, but it sounds like the Dodgers don’t want to wait that long.
