Wilson perfect in second rehab outing for Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- Brian Wilson pitched a perfect inning of relief with Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday in his second Minor League rehab appearance since signing with the Dodgers.

Wilson entered in the seventh inning, made seven pitches and induced two outs on the ground. The right-hander had tossed a 1-2-3 inning with Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wilson would make a few appearances in Triple-A before he's activated from the disabled list. The Dodgers want to see how his surgically repaired elbow responds to pitching three out of four days and on consecutive days.

"We want him to be ready and he wants to be ready," Mattingly said. "He doesn't want to come up here and not pitch well. We want him to be ready to pitch. We're trying to get him ready."

The Dodgers signed Wilson, 31, as a free agent on July 30. The former Giants closer has not pitched in the Major Leagues since he had Tommy John surgery in April 2012.
