The New York Mets were not impressed by free agent Brian Wilson during his workout on Saturday.
"Physically, he’s not ready," the source said. "He’s got a ways to go."
Puma adds that the Mets did not deem Wilson worthy of a major league contract at the point of his workout. The former San Francisco Giants’ closer continues to rehab from Tommy John surgery. At this point, Wilson isn’t interested in signing a minor league contract, according to Puma.
Puma’s source told him that while the Mets could hold another audition for Wilson if he remains unsigned into the spring, they "aren’t in a rush" to do so.
Wilson underwent his second Tommy John surgery last April, a procedure that generally carries with it a rehab process of 12 months. The 30-year-old has been San Francisco’s closer since 2008, and he maintained an ERA of 2.50 from 2009 through 2011.
