Wilson was selected by the Cardinals in the Triple-A phase of the Rule 5 draft Thursday. Wilson spent the last two seasons with High-A Bakersfield in the Mariners' organization. In 2016, he slashed just .226/.338/.375 in 435 plate appearances spread across 104 games. He did hit 13 home runs and add 49 RBI, but he had significant issues with strikeouts, striking out in 36.1 percent of his plate appearances last season. He'll likely begin next season in the lower levels of the minors.
