Dodgers re-sign Brian Wilson

Los Angeles, CA ( - The Los Angeles Dodgers have re-signed three-time All-Star reliever Brian Wilson to a one-year deal, according to reports.

The pact reportedly is worth $10 million and contains a player option for a second season. The player option is worth at least $8.5 million, according to and the Los Angeles Times, and could reach $10 million based on number of appearances, the Times reported.

After missing almost all of the 2012 season with an elbow injury that eventually required surgery, Wilson signed with the Dodgers last year after spending his first seven major league seasons with the rival San Francisco Giants.

Wilson, 31, appeared in 18 games down the stretch for the Dodgers and was a valuable bullpen arm for the NL West champions, going 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA.

The right-hander led the NL with 48 in 2010 and closed out San Francisco's title-clinching victory in Game 5 of that year's World Series against the Texas Rangers. Wilson pitched in just two games with the Giants in 2012 before being diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

He has saved 171 games while posting a 3.10 ERA over 333 career appearances in the majors.
