Brian Wilson, the eccentric former closer for the San Francisco Giants and LSU Tiger alum, will reportedly sign a contract with the Giants arch enemy, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The 31 year old All-Star hasn’t pitched since April 12, 2012. He had Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm, the second time he needed the surgery during his career (underwent same surgery in 2003 while at LSU).

Wilson was one of the best closers in baseball from 2008 to 2011 when he saved 41, 38, 48 and 36 games.

Los Angeles is hoping Wilson can return to his All-Star form. He’ll begin his pitching assignments in the minor leagues, and without any injury setbacks, should join the Dodgers roster in about two and a half weeks.

Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports first reported the story.
