Brian Wilson pitches scoreless seventh inning for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Brian WilsonBrian Wilson made sure his second rehabilitation assignment didn’t last much longer than his first.

Wilson pitched a 1-2-3 seventh inning for Triple-A Albquerque on Friday night, using a groundout, a line-drive out to left field, and another groundout to retire the side on seven pitches.

In his first rehab assignment Wednesday, Wilson needed eight pitches to record three outs for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.

The right-hander is expected to pitch in a couple more games for Albuquerque before joining the Dodgers next week. Don Mattingly said he already has a setup role in mind for Wilson.

“Kenley (Jansen) is our guy and everybody else is there to get the ball to Kenley,” the manager said.
