Brian Wilson will exercise his player option for 2015


Shocker here.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Brian Wilson has informed the Dodgers that he will exercise his player option for 2015. It’s worth $9.5 million. If his pitching does not improve, Wilson is not, but such is the way of contractual agreements.

Wilson put up a 4.66 ERA and 54/29 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 innings this season and Don Mattingly seemed pretty afraid of using him in the postseason. If it was a health thing hampering him this year, there’s still a chance for Wilson to profile as solid setup man next season.
