Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
The Giants, who were high on Wilson pre-draft in 2019, essentially bought him from the Angels for $12.7 million last offseason by taking on the final year of Zack Cozart's contract in the deal. He spent his first year in his new organization at the alternate training site and the fall instructional league. Wilson came out of North Carolina State known as a bat-first middle infielder who could hit for average and power but might have to move off shortstop, which remains an apt description. He didn't receive much pro instruction after getting drafted by the Angels, but the Giants quickly got to work developmentally after acquiring him. Adjusting Wilson's launch angle was the first order of business, as he logged a 54.7 GB% in the Pioneer League. Hitting lasers is still his bread and butter, but he has enough raw power to the pull side to hit 20-plus home runs some day to go with a potentially plus hit tool.
Wilson, the No. 15 overall pick, had a surprisingly middling debut (101 wRC+) in the hitter-friendly Pioneer League. He was then attached in an offseason deal to get the Giants to take the final year of Zack Cozart's contract. Seen as a bat-first shortstop who would inevitably end up at second base, Wilson is the type of hitter who should have laid waste to rookie-level pitching before earning a bump to Low-A. He hit .346/.435/.682 with 16 home runs and a 41:32 K:BB in 53 games as a junior at North Carolina State, and we don't have to look further than Alec Bohm in 2018 to find a high-end college hitter who struggled in his debut but followed it up with an excellent first full season. Wilson won't steal many bases and he will need to really hit to profile as an everyday player, but that is still a potential outcome. His underwhelming debut provides a nice buy-low opportunity in first-year-player drafts.
