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.
