Paul Wilson working his way back

Reds right-hander Paul Wilson is a hard worker, almost to a fault. You won't find a better conditioned athlete in baseball. That's what has made the past several months most difficult for the 32-year old pitcher.

Wilson, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in June after going 1-5 with a 7.77 ERA, was in town Thursday to discuss his re-hab.

"Every week, I'm getting stronger," Wilson told "I can see and feel my arm getting stronger every week. I'm really encouraged."

Any hopes the Reds have of being competitive in the NL Central Division may rely heavily on Wilson's full recovery.
