Brian Wilson signs $10 million deal to stay with Dodgers

Brian Wilson will be wearing Dodger Blue for at least another season.

The free-agent reliever agreed to terms on a $10 million, one-year contract to stay with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations said Thursday. The deal is pending a physical, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an announcement regarding the quirky, bearded three-time All-Star. Wilson’s new contract includes an $8.5 million player option for the 2015 season.

Wilson, a right-hander and the 2010 majors saves leader while with the Giants, joined the NL West champion Dodgers last season after a second Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery. He missed almost the entire 2012 season when the Giants won their second World Series in three years.

Getting a fresh start with his former team’s archrival, he went 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA in 18 outings over 13²⁄³ innings this year for Los Angeles.

He became a reliable option out of the bullpen for manager Don Mattingly once the right-hander returned from the lengthy elbow rehab.

Wilson chose to join the Dodgers when the Giants declined to bring him back in December 2012.

Now, he is set to pitch his first full season since 2011.
