Brian Wilson was the most noteworthy name among those who were non-tendered Friday night. Theres still a chance he could return to the Giants at a discounted rate, but Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that his tenure in San Francisco is almost certainly over."The Giants technically can negotiate a lower-priced, incentive-rich deal with Wilson now that he is a free agent, but multiple sources said the 30-year-old right-hander is upset about the Giants stance and has told people he will sign elsewhere."RELATED: Brian Wilson becomes free agent
Wilson made an 8.5 million salary this past season and the Giants werent willing to offer him the minimum guarantee of 6.8 million through arbitration coming off his second Tommy John surgery. While Wilson apparently took issue with that, it was an understandable decision from a business perspective, as the Giants bullpen is already pretty expensive and 6.8 million is a lot to guarantee to a reliever, especially one who is still rehabbing from surgery.
