Wilson was un-scored upon during a brief stay in the minors. Prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery after just two games last season the bearded wonder had been one of the games most reliable closers. He saved 36 or more games from 2008-2011.
Wilson is pitching not only for the Dodgers this season but for his next contract.
