Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 55 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

A supplemental second-round pick by the Diamondbacks out of a California high school in 2014, Wilson spent two years in Rookie ball after signing for $1 million. He posted modest numbers during five seasons in the Arizona system, with the exception of a strong 2017 in low Class A. The Red Sox acquired him along with international bonus pool money when they traded Blake Swihart to the D-backs in April.

Wilson has solid raw power and speed but has yet to translate them into significant home run or stolen base totals. After making strides with his approach in 2017, he regressed last year, striking out at a career-high 28 percent rate and struggling mightily against right-handers (.209/.296/.319). He still has a quick right-handed bat and could be a 20-20 player if he figures things out at the plate.

With above-average speed, Wilson runs well enough to steal bases and cover plenty of ground in the outfield. He has the tools to play center, but physical development may force him to either right or left field, the latter being where he made a third of his starts last year.
