The Dodgers have agreed to terms with reliever Brian Wilson on a one-year deal worth $10 million. CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman has confirmed the original report of Tim Brown of Yahoo!. Heyman also adds that Wilson's deal includes a player option for 2015 that's worth a guaranteed $8.5 million.

This past season, Wilson logged an ERA of 0.66 in 18 appearances for the Dodgers. Wilson wasn't able to make his 2013 debut until late August because he spent most of the season recovering from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in April of 2012. After his return, Wilson showed improved velocity and a deeper repertoire.

Prior to signing with the Dodgers, Wilson was of course a three-time All-Star as closer for the rival Giants. For his career, he owns an ERA+ of 132, 353 strikeouts in 333 2/3 innings and 171 saves.

In the upcoming season, Wilson will work as the primary setup man to closer Kenley Jansen.
