Wilson signed a minor-league contract Wednesday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

The Nationals sold Wilson's rights to the Korea Baseball Organization in June, a development that involved a salary increase compared to his minor-league deal with Washington. The 29-year-old was having a very productive season with Triple-A Fresno before the transaction, slashing .310/.404/.609 with 15 home runs, 48 RBI and 40 runs in 232 plate appearances. With the recent departure of All-Star third baseman Anthony Rendon, Wilson will be competing throughout spring training for a major-league roster spot, although it's likely he'll begin the season back in the minors.
