LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Dodgers’ reliever Brian Wilson is back in the big leagues 16 months after a second Tommy John surgery ended his 2012 season with the San Francisco Giants.
The Giants went on to win a second World Series without their colorful closer, but Wilson was cut loose when his contract expired at the end of the season.
He rehabbed in Hawaii, and in July, auditioned for several contending teams before ultimately choosing to sign with the Dodgers for $1 million.
Gary Miller sat down with Wilson for his first extended interview since returning to the major league roster.
They discussed everything from Wilson’s trademark beard to what actually goes on during those conferences on the mound.
