FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING HOT STOVE NEWS: TIGERS TO SIGN BRIAN WILSON TO CLOSE

                                                               

According to a team source close to the front office, the Detroit Tigers will sign free agent RP Brian Wilson with the idea of making him their closer.  The Tigers have zeroed in on deciding Wilson will be their closer and in the process have pretty much ended talks with fellow free agent Joe Nathan.    The fact Wilson pitched so dominantly in his return from Tommy John surgery with the Los Angeles Dodgers last season eased the Tigers' fears about his ability after the procedure.

Analysis:  Wilson was one of the best closer in the game before he came down with arm trouble that led to his Tommy John surgery.  We have seen countless cases of guys coming back stronger from the procedure, especially with relievers so we will sign off on Wilson as a fantasy baseball closer who could excel.  In fact Wilson would represent potentially solid value at an always volatile spot.
