The Brian Wilson saga is likely nearing its final chapter.

During an event in New York on Saturday, Giants general manager Brian Sabean told the New York Post that he does not anticipate Brian Wilson returning to the Giants this season. The Giants non-tendered Wilson in November, making the three-time All-Star closer a free agent.

"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."
