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.
The #Dodgers have released Brian Wilson, whom they recently DFA'd.
