Brian Wilson has been DFA'd

Holy Moly.  I didn't think they'd do this.

During this afternoons telephone press conference regarding the official signing of Brandon McCarthy, it was announced that the corresponding move to the 40-man roster would be to DFA Brian Wilson.

So, unless Wilson accepts a demotion to the minor leagues, he has likely already spent his last days within the Dodger organization.  There was no word of a possible trade for him, but if something comes along the Dodgers will consider it. 

Wilson is owed $9.5Mil for 2015, so that's quite a bit of change the Dodgers are walking away from.

UPDATE:  12/19/2014 According to Dylan Hernandez on twitter Wilson has been released by the Dodgers; meaning that the Dodger were unable to find a trade partner and are now on the hook for his $9.5Mil contract.
