Brian Wilson pitches scoreless inning in first minor league rehab game

Stephen Dunn

The 31-year-old veteran closer was signed on July 30, and is currently on the disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Brian Wilson made his professional debut for the Dodgers on Wednesday night as he pitched a scoreless inning for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga in the first game of his minor league rehab assignment.

Wilson allowed two ground outs in the inning and also had a strikeout against the Lake Elsinore Storm, a Padres affiliate, which took all of eight pitches. Kyle Glaser of Riverside Press-Enterprise was at the game:

Wilson said after the game he would likely go to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, per Ryan Walton of Valley Bay News.

The Dodgers signed the former Giants closer as a free agent on July 30. Wilson last pitched in a major league game on April 12, 2012, for San Francisco. He underwent Tommy John surgery later that month and missed the remainder of the season.

Wilson, 31, was placed on the disabled list on July 30, the day he was signed, so the earliest he could possibly be activated by the Dodgers is Aug. 14.

Before the game, Michael Martinez of Fox Sports West captured a shot of Wilson in Dodger blue.
