This one is going to be difficult for Giants fans to take:

Closer Brian Wilson who played such an integral role in San Francisco's 2010 World Series win has chosen to sign with the Dodgers according to sources.

No word yet on terms. And the Dodgers' plans for him at the moment are also unclear – how long say he would take to get ready in the minor leagues before joining the big club.

The Dodgers have been seeking bullpen help specifically an eighth-inning man who can work as a bridge to closer Kenley Jansen. Wilson described by one scout who watched him work out last week at UCLA as “getting close” to major-league ready has plenty of late-inning experience.

Wilson 31 underwent Tommy John ligament transfer surgery in April 2012. He last threw a major-league pitch on April 12 2012.
