I love this pick. Prior to the year, Wilson was in the running for Seattle’s first round selection. Instead, we got him in the second round. Wilson has the potential to be a true right fielder on the defensive side of the ball, and his bat profiles well there. In a Mariner organization that doesn’t have many promising outfielders, Wilson could move quickly and be an impact player on both offense and defense in a hurry. Assuming that his minor injury is not a long-term concern, I would say that Seattle got a steal with Wilson.
There is much more to come on Wilson and the following Mariner selections here at Sodo Mojo.
