Free agent right-hander Brian Wilson, who was cut loose by the San Francisco Giants Friday, has interest in signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels, Boston Red Sox and his former team, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN. Brian Wilson has interest in Giants, Dodgers, Angels, Red Sox according to source — JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) December 1, 2012 When it was first reported that the Giants were likely to non-tender Wilson, it was also rumored that the right-hander wouldn’t have interest re-signing with the team if they decided to cut ties with him. However, according to Bowden’s report, Wilson would consider rejoining San Francisco. While Wilson may have interest in signing with the Giants, Dodgers, Red Sox and Angels, it’s not clear if any of the clubs are targeting the free agent. Wilson required season-ending surgery last season after appearing in two games with the Giants. Over his previous six years with the club the 30-year-old owns an ERA and WHIP of 3.17 and 1.327 with 170 saves.  Follow @mlbinjurynews !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.mlbinjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
