Brian Wilson Has Pitched In San Francisco?


The last time Brian Wilson pitched in a regular season game in San Francisco was on August 7, 2011 against the Philadelphia Phillies. He pitched in just two games in 2012 (both in Colorado) before undergoing his second career Tommy John surgery.

Well, Wilson was back on the mound in San Francisco on Friday, according to Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News. No, not at AT&T Park, but at the University of San Francisco.

As Pavlovic notes in his report, Wilson has been “hard to find” during his rehab. The New York Mets weren’t impressed with Wilson when the right-hander pitched in front of them at UCLA in January, and he’s essentially been silent since, rehabbing in Hawaii.

Buster Olney reported on July 9 that Wilson could “audition” for scouts in August. If he impresses, he will put himself in a perfect position to sign on with a contender for the stretch run.

A league source told Pavlovic that the Giants have “kept tabs” on Wilson through his rehab. I wouldn’t look too far into that, though, because the team that brought him up is naturally going to keep tabs on him. This isn’t to say that the Giants have completely ruled out the possibility bringing him back, but it’s far too early to tell.
