Brian Wilson: A Free Agent

Tonight at nine o’clock Pacific rime, Brian Wilson was non-tendered and officially a free agent. Proven closers are becoming a hot commodity so the bearded bullpen man could be headed out of town. Wilson’s offseason home is in Los Angeles and he has expressed interest in remaining there. Possibly a fresh start? But does this include the beard. There are reports stating that Wilson will shave off the famous facial hair in order to have a fresh start if he does sign with a new club.

Coming off his second Tommy John surgery, Wilson was a financial risk the San Francisco Giants couldn’t afford to take.
