Dodgers reinstate Brian Wilson; Option Scott Van Slyke to Triple-A Albuquerque


The Los Angeles Dodgers today reinstated right-handed reliever Brian Wilson from the 15-day disabled list and optioned outfielder/first baseman Scott Van Slyke to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Wilson, who will wear jersey number 00, did not allow a run in four rehab appearances between Triple-A Albuquerque (3) and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga (1), striking out three, while allowing only one hit in 4.1 scoreless frames. The 31-year-old was signed by the Dodgers on July 30 and was placed on the 15-day disabled list as he continued his recovery from 2012 Tommy John surgery.

In 315 career games with the Giants from 2006-12, Wilson was 20-20 with 171 saves. The New Hampshire native has limited opposing hitters to a .238 batting average during the course of his career with 340 strikeouts in 320.0 innings. He last appeared in a Major League game on April 12, 2012.

Van Slyke, who appeared in his fourth stint with the club this season, is batting .252 (26-for-103) with six home runs, seven doubles and 16 RBI in 38 games for Los Angeles.
