Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson has allowed 15 runs in 16 outings this season, and his manager expressed concern for the three-time Giants All-Star.
"You couldn’t see the velocity out there," Don Mattingly told the Los Angeles Times. "Some of those are 88-89, stuff like that, even less. It does concern us a little bit, but then toward the end of the inning, he’s dialing it up. The other day he comes out, it’s 88-90. By the end of the inning he’s throwing 96. But there are concerns."
Wilson, 32, went 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA in 18 appearances after joining the Dodgers last season and parlayed his performance into a one-year, $10 million contract with an $8.5 million player option for 2015.
Asked if Wilson, who has twice undergone Tommy John surgery, was dealing with any injuries, Mattingly replied: "He says he's healthy."
