That’s a nice payday for Wilson, who looked great in 20 innings down the stretch and into the playoffs after missing all of 2012 following Tommy John elbow surgery. He’ll resume setting up for closer Kenley Jansen, giving the Dodgers’ an overpowering late-inning duo.
And given his recent injury history the player option is an interesting wrinkle to the deal. Bob Nightengale of USA Today says the option is for $9 million, so Wilson is guaranteed $19 million but could also decline it and hit the open market again for a bigger payday. Helluva job by his agent.
