Brian WilsonThis weekend the reports from Scottsdale, Ariz., were that Brian Wilson's status for opening day was in doubt. On Monday, Wilson said there's no doubt he'll be ready to pitch once the games count.

"If it's a regular-season game, I'm throwing," Wilson told's Chris Haft. "There's really no point in risking anything by going out and pitching the sixth inning of a spring training game on March 21."

Wilson had his strained oblique muscle in his left side re-examined on Monday and may start throwing as soon as Wednesday.

"That's a credit to the type of shape he's in and his response to the treatment," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

The Giants start the season on March 31 at Dodger Stadium.
