"The likelihood is, yeah the season's over with," said Wilson. "I'll be getting a couple more opinions but we all know what structural damage is. The likelihood of me throwing again this year is minimal."
Baggarly noted that Wilson was in good spirits Sunday morning, which was clear from the choice Wilson quotes Baggarly tweeted earlier, compiled below:
"It’s a year. No big deal. If I plan on playing forever, then this is a small percentage of my career. ... I don’t think (bullpen is) going to falter. I think we’re going to take the West no matter what, whether I’m here or not. ... By no stretch of the [imagination] is my journey over. This is a mild bump in my road. Nothing has been easy when I’ve pitched or lived."
Wilson has been the Giants full-time closer since 2008, and saved 48 games for San Francisco in 2010. With Wilson out, manager Bruce Bochy will rely on a closer-by-committee system with relievers Sergio Romo, Santiago Casilla, and Javier Lopez.
