Report: Dodgers' Brian Wilson will exercise player option

Wednesday October 8th, 2014

Los Angles Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson will exercise his $9.5 million player option for the 2015 season, MLB Daily Dish's Chris Cotillo reports.

Wilson, 32, struggled in his second season with the Dodgers, going 2-4 with a 4.66 ERA, 54 strikeouts and 29 walks in 48.1 innings. He joined the Dodgers in July 2013 and had a 0.66 ERA in 18 games with the team last season.

The 32-year-old made just one appearance during the Dodgers' National League Division Series loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. He gave up one hit and one walk while recording one out in Los Angeles's Game 3 loss.

Wilson spent the first seven seasons of his career with the San Francisco Giants and made three All-Star teams. He also won the 2010 World Series with the club.
