San Francisco Giants’ premier closer, Brian Wilson, promises to be ready for Opening Day

Brian Wilson is looking to make his mark in the remaining days of Spring Training in Scottsdale, Arizona. The player, who was suffering from mildly strained oblique muscle in his left side, has promised the fans and the club to be ready for the Opening Day challenge on the 31st of March. The San Francisco Giants closer has a lot of ambition dependent on him and he looks good to be in the mix when the call comes at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.

Manager of the club, Bruce Bochy, wants a lot for his team and Wilson, being the two times All Star Closer, knows that his role will be pivotal in getting the club through to the playoffs again this season. The manager recently had the chance to talk to the press and he conveyed his optimism in seeing the player back in the role with full fitness. The player had publicly unveiled his injury trouble on Saturday and compared to that time, Bochy claims the player is feeling a lot better.

"That's a credit to the type of shape he's in and his response to the treatment," Bochy said.

Wilson has been cleared by his doctors to pitch again and he believes that with the arm strength back, there’s nothing a week’s absence from workout can do to hinder his performance on the field.

"If it's a regular-season game, I'm throwing," Wilson said. But, he stated, "There's really no point in risking anything by going out and pitching the sixth inning of a Spring Training game on March 21."

The Giants closer had 48 saves last season and he’s not under pressure to start off with a bang, this year. He’s not going to exert much energy as his aim will rest on avoiding a tear on his muscle.

"It's more important that I'm ready in June or August or September than right now," he said. "The worst thing that could happen is you'd tear something if you tried to come back too early, which isn't worth risking an entire season."

If Wilson gets into right knock, the Giants can be more optimistic for this season.
