He signed a minor league contract without a spring training invite. The Matt Treanor signing pretty much ended his Detroit tenure, but hopefully this will be the start of Wilson's comeback from elbow problems.
As expected, Vance Wilson had surgery today to reconstruct the elbow ligament that was operated on last year but didn’t hold. Dr. Stephen Lemos performed the procedure this time at Detroit Medical Center.
I saw a couple of you asked about Vance Wilson while I was off this weekend. His arm is progressing well, Jim Leyland said today, but now he’s dealing with foot problems. He has a case of plantar fasciitis, though I’m not sure on which foot.
“The arm’s much better,” Leyland said. “He can throw. He just can’t walk.”
Head athletic trainer Kevin Rand said that Wilson is still ongoing with his rehab program, and should be able to catch bullpen sessions again in a couple days. They were ready to have him DH in some extended spring games when the foot problems came about, so that would be the next step.
