Report: Alderson Watches Brian Wilson In Private Workout

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – USA Today’s Bob Nightengale tweeted that New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson watched former San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson in a private workout on Saturday.

Wilson played in only two games last season and is trying to return from Tommy John surgery. Nightengale said he is expected to be ready for the start of the season.

From 2008-2011, Wilson appeared in 258 games and saved 163 games with a 3.07 ERA and 297 strikeouts.

The Mets have not signed a big name free agent this offseason and Alderson told earlier this month that he does expect to add someone to the bullpen.
