Dodgers could activate Brian Wilson on Sunday

Reliever Brian Wilson, recently signed as a free agent by the Dodgers, could be activated tomorrow, reports Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. Wilson threw a simulated game yesterday and everything went according to plan.

Manager Don Mattingly thinks Wilson has passed all of the requisite tests:

“I don’t think there will be another simulated game,” Mattingly said when asked. “I think we’re kind of ‘gamed’ out. He has pretty much crossed off everything we wanted him to do.”

Wilson last pitched on April 12, 2012. He then underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Tomorrow’s game will be the Dodgers’ 124th of the season, meaning the injury has cost Wilson 284 games.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
