The Dodgers have been in the market for a while in the relief market and it sounds like they’ve added another arm as they’ve agreed to terms with former Giants closer Brian Wilson.

Wilson will sign a minor league deal with the Dodgers and he’ll begin in the minor leagues, similar to former Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol.

According to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports, Wilson chose the Dodgers over several other teams:

As general manager Ned Colletti has stated on several occasions, the Dodgers weren’t looking to make a franchise-changing move at the deadline, but this definitely could be a precursor to more.

Colletti has made at least one deal at the trade deadline and he’s shown an affinity for former Giants as noted by the Juan Uribe, Jason Schmidt and Jonathan Sanchez signings.

Brown also discussed  what the Dodgers plan is for Wilson after he’s in the minors:

Wilson has a higher ceiling than Marmol as he’s coming off multiple Tommy John surgeries, but expect to see him and his beard on the mound at Dodger Stadium shortly.

    Don’t like having ex-Giants as Dodgers.. Journeymen ok but this guy is a career Giant. His heart has to be there in the bay.
    It should be mandatory to cut that beard though.
