Brian Wilson has started throwing again after missing nearly the entire season following Tommy John elbow surgery, but his days with the Giants could be numbered.

Friday is the deadline for teams to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players and Wilson seems all but certain to be non-tendered by the Giants after being paid 8.5 million in 2012.

Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement the least Wilson could make in 2013 if offered arbitration by the Giants is 6.8 million -- a 20 percent pay cut from 8.5 million -- but according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle the Giants have no interest in guaranteeing him that much money.

According to Schulman the Giants would still like to sign Wilson for a lesser salary, but the two sides are not exactly seeing eye to eye in negotiations and if they cant work something out by Friday hell become a free agent.
