    Dodgers Sign Brian Wilson

    By Tim Dierkes [July 30 at 1:26pm CST]
    The Dodgers signed free agent reliever Brian Wilson to a minor league deal, tweetsYahoo's Tim Brown. The Beard had a long road to recovery from April 2012 Tommy John surgery. He spent his entire career in the Giants organization, racking up 171 saves in the process. The Giants non-tendered him after last season, and the fully-recovered Wilson auditioned for many teams Thursday. Wilson had three offers, notes Brown.
    The Dodgers' bullpen struggled at the outset of the season, partially due to the decision to anoint Brandon League the closer. Kenley Jansen officially usurped that role in mid-June. The Dodgers have also gotten good work from lefties J.P. Howell and Paco Rodriguez.
    The tentative plan for Wilson is to begin at the Dodgers' complex in Arizona, then go to Rancho Cucamonga, and then report to the Dodgers in two weeks, tweets Brown.

    Man I hate this fucker, but minor league deal and we have Marmol on our roster so there's room for him if he's solid

    Only some of you people could find a way to complain about signing a guy to a minor league deal, this is a no risk/potentially high reward move.

    We dont really have a true setup man so hopefully he could eventually assume that role. Him and Paco combo could make a great bridge to Kenley.

    I LOVE this move. He lives in LA, obviously wants to be here if he signed a minor league contract. Yeah the beard shit is stupid, but I'm sure he will have no trouble fitting in the clubhouse. Everybody already hates us, might as well add another douche to troll the rest of the league even harder.

    He's a Dodger, now. Front of the jersey, not the back.

    And too, doesn't require any prospects. We can use that "bait" to catch bigger fish.

    Great, great fucking deal. Extremely low risk and very high upside.

    Great move Ned.
