GIF: Dodgers’ Brian Wilson Throws Knuckleball Versus Mariners

Due to Zack Greinke’s right calf strain, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly deemed today’s game against the Seattle Mariners as a “relievers game”. Setup man Brian Wilson got the start against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez and was followed by Kenley Jansen, J.P. Howell, Jamey Wright and so on.

Wilson re-signed with the Dodgers after there was interest from other teams this off-season, but decided to return to LA. In today’s game, the 31-year-old veteran mowed down the only three hitters he saw, but it was the first pitch that has people buzzing.

Facing Mariners shortstop Brad Miller, Wilson uncorked a knuckleball for a strike. Many were taken back by the news tweeted by Dodgers beat writer Ken Gurnick, but Josh Tucker of DodgerInsider.com posted a Vine of Wilson working on the pitch last October.

Here’s the knuckleball from Wilson this afternoon and one has to wonder if we’ll see it again during the regular season:
