This means he will be activated from the 15-day disabled list before tomorrow’s game. I’m going to predict once again that the corresponding move probably won’t be made until the last possible moment, but I have to believe they’re going to option Dee Gordon back to Triple-A and carry an extra reliever, at least for the next few days. Expect to see Gordon back when rosters expand in September, if not before.
Wilson, 31, last pitched in the majors on April 12, 2012. A week later, he underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time (the first time came during his collegiate career at Louisiana State University). The three-time All-Star had spent his entire major league career with the San Francisco Giants before being released last winter and signing a one-year, $1 million contract with the Dodgers on July 30, which will be paid on a prorated basis for the remainder of the season. The Dodgers placed him on the 15-day disabled list while he completed the final stages of his recovery. He made four minor league rehab appearances for the Dodgers, one at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and three at Triple-A Albuquerque, and gave up no runs on one hit over 4 1/3 innings.
