October throwing targeted for Wilson

October throwing targeted for Wilson

LOS ANGELES -- Giants closer Brian Wilson, recovering from Tommy John elbow surgery, will resume throwing in October.

This was among the subjects Wilson discussed with manager Bruce Bochy when the right-hander visited Dodger Stadium on Tuesday.

"I talked to Willie quite a bit yesterday," Bochy said. "It seems like he's in a good place mentally."

Bochy added jokingly, "The beard did not took healthy."

Bochy indicated that Wilson, who underwent surgery April 19, won't be ready to participate fully in workouts when Spring Training begins. But, as Bochy said, "There's no need to get ready for Spring Training," suggesting that Wilson will approach his rehabilitation and recovery in gradual fashion.
