Report: Dodgers Not Interested In Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson's presumed plan to gain leverage on the San Francisco Giants during free agency may have hit a speed bump on Sunday.

The L.A. Times' Dylan Hernandez is reporting that the Los Angeles Dodgers have never had interest in the bearded closer of two Tommy John surgeries. In fact, the
main reason is that the team is stocked with relievers, none of which they would let go for a sideshow like Wilson.
"Though the Dodgers won't publicly comment on free agents, people familiar with team officials' thinking say they aren't looking to sign Wilson." 

"With Brandon League, Kenley Jansen and Ronald Belisario under club control, the back of the Dodgers' bullpen appears to be close to set. The Dodgers continue to look for bullpen help, but are primarily focused on adding a left-hander. They have also talked to the Pittsburgh Pirates about Joel Hanrahan, but a trade appears unlikely, according to a person familiar with the situation."
Wilson reportedly wants to sign with the Dodgers because of the location close to his home in L.A.
