Brian Wilson Out With Inflamed Elbow

Closer Brian Wilson is the latest San Francisco Giant to be on the bench nursing an injury.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that Wilson will be out two to three days with an inflamed elbow.

Boch said Wilson felt something was wrong while he was pitching Monday night during his blown save against the Braves.

It was enough of a worry that Wilson flew to Pensacola, Florida to see the surgeon who performed Tommy John surgery on him earlier in his career.

There was a fear that he might have something more serious, but Bochy said the doctor only found inflammation.
