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.
