The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to sign free agent closer Brian Wilson to a minor league contract.
The 31 year old Wilson has not pitched since undergoing Tommy John elbow reconstructive surgery in April 2012. He will be sent on a minor league rehab assignment before joining the Dodgers.
The right-hander was the closer for the San Francisco Giants in 2010 when they won the World Series. In seven seasons with the Giants, Wilson has 171 saves.
The Dodgers are a Major League best 25-6 since late June. They host the New York Yankees on Tuesday night. The first place Dodgers hold a 2.5 game lead over second place Arizona.
