Giants GM Brian Sabean all but confirmed that free agent Brian Wilson (elbow) won't be returning this season.

"I'm going to be brutally honest as I always am, I don't [think Wilson will return]," Sabean said. "In this case, where you are getting a second Tommy John.it's the type of rehab where he's still not further up along to judge exactly where he may be able to come back in major league fashion, let alone as a closer." Wilson is tentatively expected to be ready for Opening Day, but failed to impress the Mets in a workout last weekend, and has yet to receive any formal offers. While the Giants don't expect to bringing him back, Sabean did leave open the possibility that Wilson could return on an incentive-laden, one-year contract.
