SECOND RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY FOR BRIAN WILSON
Mon, 23 Apr 2012 11:51 PM EDT

All-Star SF Giants closer Brian Wilson will undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in Pensacola, Fla. NFL betting lines

Renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery after doing a similar process on Wilson when the right-hander was in college at LSU in 2003. San Francisco team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki was set to go to Florida to assist with the procedure.

Andrews examined Wilson and admitted the Giants’ diagnosis of a torn ulnar collateral ligament that may sideline him all season. While the time period can be longer than the standard 12-18 months following Tommy John surgery, the Giants hope Wilson is a quick healer and will likely be able to pitch in 2013. Football odds

“We’re all ready to have the surgery done and get that over with,” executive Bruce Bochy said last Wed. before the series finale with the Philadelphia Phillies. “On the rehabilitation side of it, they’re doing a better job of getting these guys back on the mound, throwing a bit earlier. From what I understand, when you have got the 2nd one it may take a little longer. It is not like there’s a large sample size to show that. Hopefully it all goes well and Brian will be pitching following year.”

The 30-year-old bearded closer led the majors with 48 saves in 2010 and recorded the final out in Game 5 of the World Series at Texas to clinch the franchise’s 1st championship since moving West in 1958.

The 3-time All-Star protested of discomfort in the elbow last week and was sent for an MRI examination. Wilson threw 32 pitches at Colorado while working on back-to-back days, and had to be checked on once. Groeschner claimed Wilson felt something in the elbow that day, but informed the team until Friday of last week.

Wilson finished 6-4 with a 3.11 ERA and 36 saves in 57 shows last season, held out down the stretch for safety reasons. He had taken all of the critical steps in his rehab this spring, so the injury caught everybody by surprise.

Bochy expects Wilson to re-join the team at home on the weekend after its upcoming trip East to New York and Cincinnati.

“He’ll return here and resume his rehab and I’m sure he’ll be here to assist his teammates,” Bochy related.

The Giants are assured in their present bullpen structure with Santiago Casilla in the closer place — he filled in for Wilson last year — and Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez are also able 9th-inning options to hold a late lead.

In fact, center fielder Angel Pagan asserted the bullpen will “protect it like an upside down cat.”

Casilla earned his 1st save last Tuesday’s 4-2 win, following up scoreless innings by Romo and Clay Hensley.

“Our staff is well-armed,” Romo announced. “We can pitch in any situation. Tonight we showed how we mesh and mix well. We complement each other. We are simply trying to get outs. There was actually no stress to get the 1st close game out of the way.”
