(Updated 7/5): 2016 has meant the graduation from rookie league baseball for Wilson which is where he has been since being drafted him 69th overall in the Competitive Balance Round B of the 2014 Draft. It is going to take time for the still teenager as he possess great raw tools but just needs the pro level experience to continue to climb up the system. This season, he has shown more confidence in his speed and skills on the base paths. He is already at six stolen bases on the season which is one shy of his mark for all of last year. He does a good job of drawing walks to get on base which is key for a potential leadoff hitter but hitting overall still needs to see more consistency.
