Free agent reliever Brian Wilson has agreed to a minor league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a source confirms. The deal was first reported Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports. Wilson, 31, hasn't pitched since being injured on April 12, 2012, while with the San Francisco Giants, and undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career. According to Brown, Wilson will report to the Dodgers complex in Arizona before pitching with the Rancho Cucamonga affiliate. The plan is for the right-hander to report to the Dodgers in two weeks. He received three offers. Wilson, most recently the closer for the Giants, would likely be a setup man for the Dodgers. Wilson became a free agent following the 2012 season. He saved at least 36 games in each season from 2008 to 2011 and led the majors with 48 saves in 2010. He went 6-4 with a 3.11 ERA and 36 saves in 2011, his last full season in the majors. He was drafted by the San Giants in 2003.
