Report: Alderson Intends To Watch Brian Wilson For A Second Time
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The New York Mets can’t seem to make up their mind on free-agent reliever Brian Wilson.
According to ESPN, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told the network’s Jim Bowden, that he intends to go watch Wilson for a second time.
Earlier this month, USA Today’s Bob Nightengale tweeted that Alderson watched the former San Francisco Giants closer in a private workout.
A day later Alderson told the New York Post that he was “not sure” if he would make an offer to Wilson.
Then two days later the newspaper said the Mets aren’t interested in offering Wilson a major league contract, and Wilson isn’t interested in signing a minor league deal.
Wilson played in only two games last season and is trying to return from Tommy John surgery.
From 2008-2011, Wilson appeared in 258 games and saved 163 games with a 3.07 ERA and 297 strikeouts.
