Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports listed the Dodgers, Giants, Indian, Mariners, Red Sox, Rockies and Tigers as major league teams "most interested" in free agent reliever Brian Wilson.

Wilson eliminated the Yankees from his list because he would not consider shaving off his signature beard to comply with the team's strick policy against facial hair, per Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.

Brown also reports the Reds could enter the chase for Wilson, depending on the status of closer Aroldis Chapman.

LEMIRE: Tigers shouldn't trade Max Scherzer

Wilson, the colorful 31-year-old right-hander impressed teams with his comeback from Tommy John surgery this season, allowing only one run in 19.2 innings of relief for the Dodgers.
