Dodgers short man Brian Wilson to stick around in 2015
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/8/14) Short reliever Brian Wilson has informed the Dodgers that he will exercise his player option for the 2015 season, per MLBDailyDish.com.
The former lights-out San Francisco closer performed well after mid-August. He yielded earned runs just twice in his last 29 games, including his one playoff appearance. But he still finished the season with a disappointing 4.66 ERA and 29 walks in 48 1/3 innings.

|(9/20/14) Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson was hung with a loss Saturday, allowing two earned runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 8-7 defeat against the Cubs.
Tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the eighth inning, Wilson (2-4) surrendered a two-run home run with one out to put the Dodgers behind for good in a game they led 7-2 in the middle of the seventh. Wilson hadn't surrendered an earned run in more than a month heading into Saturday's game. He owns a 4.86 ERA and 54:28 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings.

Brian Wilson gets rare save with closer unavailable
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/14) With Kenley Jansen unavailable Wednesday against the Royals, the Dodgers turned to Brian Wilson to pick up his first save since April, 2012.
Wilson closed out a 5-4 win, but not before the Royals made it interesting. He allowed a one-out single, and nearly allowed the Royals to tie it, but first baseman Scott Van Slyke snared a line drive to induce a game-ending double play.
Wilson struck out one batter on 17 pitches for his first save of the season. He lowered his ERA to 5.13 with the outing, and has not allowed a run in his last six appearances.
Brian Wilson wants more repetitions to get back on track
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/14) Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson told reporters his arm feel strong and that he needs "more repetitions to get locked in," according to MLB.com on Friday.|
Wilson, coming back from nerve inflammation in his right elbow, allowed four runs in one-third of an inning Thursday against Philadelphia. He owns a whopping 15.75 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP over his first four innings pitched.
"I need to get to the point where everything is in sync," Wilson said. "I know what I'm capable of doing when everything's in sync. I just need to get there."
|Former Giants closer Brian Wilson resurfaced in the majors late last summer after spending a year recovering from Tommy John surgery. But he did the unthinkable and joined NL West rival Los Angeles in a setup role and not as the closer. Wilson pitched well for the most part, going 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 18 appearances. He struck out 13 batters in 13 2/3 innings and had three holds. While Wilson had strong numbers, he was no longer consistently throwing his fastball in the mid-90s. He was mostly pitching in the low 90s, which might have hurt his chances at landing a closer's role this offseason. Wilson opted to come back to Los Angeles on a one-year deal, where he will be a setup man for closer Kenley Jansen. Wilson is obviously a fallback option for saves, but since he will open the year as a setup man, leave him for Rotisserie leagues and formats that reward holds.
