Scott Miller of CBSSports.com said over the weekend (via Twitter). There’s lots of interest in Brian Wilson. Wilson isn’t close to signing but has narrowed his list from nine or ten teams to five or so.
The San Francisco Giants are letting Wilson sort through all of his options, and have the door open for discussions with Wilson. It’s looking more, and more likely that Wilson will not return to San Francisco. However, I still wouldn’t mind seeing him come back. He brings a fun/loose energy to this team, and it sure will be hard to see him in another uniform.
Outfielder Endy Chavez has signed a minor league deal with the Royals. The Giants were interested in Chavez, reports Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com (via Twitter).
I’m doubtful that there was much interest there for Chavez. He’s a left-handed hitter and the only playing time he would get would be left field. The Giants already have Gregor Blanco and Andres Torres fighting for playing time over there.
