by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:13 pm ET) The Marlins have promoted left-handers Adam Conley and Chris Reed from Triple-A New Orleans and sent down catcher Tomas Telis to the same team.

The result is that Wilson has announced he is destined for surgery and could be out for the season, per the Orange County Register.

Wilson was placed on the disabled list Friday after a terrible performance Tuesday. If he is indeed done, he will finish the year 8-8 with a 3.89 ERA.
