The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to call up reliever Brian Wilson this weekend, according to the Los Angeles Times. The team has not announced exactly when that will happen, however. "When we bring him up, we'll let you know," manager Don Mattingly said. "I didn't say he wasn't ready ... All the reports are good. There's really nothing negative about Brian at this point." Wilson, 31, signed a one-year contract with the Dodgers in July. He has been out the past two seasons while recovering from a second Tommy John surgery. He was the San Francisco Giants closer before he was injured. Wilson has appeared in four minor league games since signing with the Dodgers. He has allowed one baserunner and struck out three in 4 1/3 innings. The Dodgers bullpen is already stacked, including two other former closers setting up Kenley Jansen with Carlos Marmol and Brandon League. The red-hot Dodgers start a three-game series at the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
