Giants Willing to Offer Wilson Big League Contract, Mets Aren't

Brian Wilson should obtain a contract sometime in the near future. Whether the contract will be a big league contract or minor league contract is still up for question, though.

On Sunday, we heard that Wilson privately worked out for the New York Mets in Los Angeles. The two sides never came close to a deal, and still reportedly aren’t, but this could change.

However, the Mets aren’t interested in offering Wilson a big league contract, whereas the Giants are amendable to such an idea, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Wilson, who pitched in just two games for the Giants last season, has a lot to prove in terms of his healthy, as he has now had two Tommy John surgeries in his seven-year career. Ideally, he could be a nifty high-risk, high-reward add for a team, but any contract would be incentive loaded with a small guaranteed salary.
