What's This?

The Los Angeles Dodgers and free agent reliever Brian Wilson are reportedly close to a contract agreement according to Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown on Twitter.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports first reported (on Twitter) that the two sides were having conversations and that the Detroit Tigers’ signing of Joe Nathan might have accelerated talks between Wilson and the Dodgers.

Wilson pitched fantastically coming off of Tommy John surgery, signing a $1 million contract with the Dodgers and returning in August, posting a 0.66 ERA, allowing just one run in 13.2 innings, and threw three scoreless innings in the postseason as well.

His fastball topped out at 93.2 miles/hour following the surgery.

The news comes a day after the Dodgers cut ties with reliever Ronald Belisario.
