2015 Fantasy Outlook
At 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, Wilson is a five-tool prospect with good power who could be the right-fielder of the future in Seattle. A strained Achilles' tendon in June interrupted an excellent first full professional season last year at Low-A Clinton. It also likely prevented him from getting an expected promotion to High-A. That's where he is likely to start this season as he continues to develop his raw power (32 XBH at Low-A Clinton). The organization's 2013 second-round pick, Wilson, 23, is at least a couple years away.
