Dodgers Not Expected To Pursue Brian Wilson

The Dodgers are not expected pursue closer Brian Wilson, reports Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. Wilson was non-tendered by the Giants on Friday.

Wilson, who lives in Los Angeles, has expressed interest in playing for the Dodgers, Angels, and Red Sox. Wilson pitched in only two games last season, as he underwent his second Tommy John surgery in April. Hernandez believes Wilson could sign an incentive-laden deal similar to the one Ryan Madson signed with the Angels.

The back end of the Dodgers' bullpen appears to be set with the recently-signed Brandon League plus Kenley Jansen and Ronald Belisario under team control. Hernandez reports the Dodgers have talked to the Pirates about Joel Hanrahan, but a trade appears unlikely, according to a person familiar with the situation.
