07:09 AM ET 07.23 | It's baaccckkkk? The most famously bearded relief pitcher in Giants history threw another session off a mound on Monday, but that wasn't the most interesting part. It was the guests in attendance. Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti stood in the batter???s box for most of the session, held at the University of San Francisco, a source tells CSN Bay Area. Giants bullpen catcher Billy Hayes caught Wilson as well. Another source confirmed that both Giants coaches were in attendance to view Wilson, who looked impressive. ... Righetti declined comment. Wilson had terrific stuff, according to a source who saw him pitch. There wasn't a radar gun on him but was estimated to top out at 94 mph with movement on his cutter. He showed good feel for a changeup, too.

Incentive based contract would be a good idea or just about any team. He's a top closer if he regains form.

Can he replicate that same workout a day later without his arm falling off?

Not sure where he would fit in Giants bull pen, unless one of them is on last year of contract. problem is how will his arm respond tomorrow or hold up pithing every game or every other game? If Wilson responds well , their are teams out their that would be interested in Wilson

Im sure Detroit would be extremely interested in Wilson if arm is healthy

Trade bait, trade bait, trade bait. For a hitter, anyone who can drive in some runs...please.

Tigers should be very interested. Benoit and Smyly only reliable arms in their pen. Rondon, also somewhat reliable. They need two more solid bullpen arms.
