Marcus Wilson: Cut loose by Boston
The Red Sox released Wilson on Tuesday, Katie Morrison-O'Day of The Springfield Republican reports.
Wilson was getting scant playing time at Triple-A Worcester and was batting just .153 with a 47.1 percent strikeout rate over 68 plate appearances for the affiliate this season, so Boston opted to cut ties with the 26-year-old outfielder. He'll look to catch on elsewhere on a minor-league deal.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Signs on with Boston
Wilson signed a minor-league contract with Boston on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
It's a return to the Boston organization for Wilson, as he was acquired for Blake Swihart back in 2019. The outfielder spent last year in the Seattle organization, getting first big-league call-up in late June before being pushed off the 40-man roster just over a month later. The 26-year-old outfielder is likely to serve merely as organization depth for Boston at Triple-A Worcester.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Marcus Wilson: Clears waivers
The Mariners outrighted Wilson to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.
Wilson will remain in the Seattle organization after he went unclaimed by MLB's other 29 teams upon being exposed to waivers over the weekend. The 25-year-old got a brief cup of coffee in the majors earlier this season but has otherwise spent the entire campaign at Tacoma, with whom he's produced a .771 OPS over 282 plate appearances....

Mariners' Marcus Wilson: Designated for assignment
Wilson was designated for assignment on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The Mariners needed to add a lefty reliever to the 40-man roster, and with Mitch Haniger's return right around the corner, Wilson was expendable. He could remain in the organization as outfield depth if he clears waivers.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Marcus Wilson: Returns to minors
The Mariners optioned Wilson to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.
Wilson's week-long stint in the big leagues came to an end with first baseman Ty France (elbow) being activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. During his time with Seattle, Wilson appeared in three games and went 1-for-5 with a walk and a run scored.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Marcus Wilson: Gets first big-league call-up
The Mariners selected Wilson's contract from Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.
Wilson will receive his first MLB call-up of the season in the wake of fellow outfielder Taylor Trammell straining his right hamstring in Tuesday's win over the Orioles and subsequently landing on the 10-day injured list. The 25-year-old slashed .209/.336/.469 with 12 home runs and eight stolen bases across 238 plate appearances with Tacoma. He has the ability to play all three outfield spots and is expected to serve as a bench piece for Seattle.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Marcus Wilson: Outrighted off roster
Wilson was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
Wilson was claimed off waivers from the Red Sox in early August but didn't see the field at the big-league level in either Boston or Seattle. He hit a respectable .240/.364/.421 at the Triple-A level with the two organizations, good for a 110 wRC+, but he struck out in 33.4 percent of his plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Marcus Wilson: Claimed by Seattle
Wilson was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Wilson spent the start of the season at Triple-A Worcester, but he was cast off Boston's 40-man roster at the end of July. The 24-year-old hit .244 with 10 homers, 34 runs, 30 RBI and 10 stolen bases to begin the year, and he'll now report to Triple-A Tacoma.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: In Tuesday's lineup
Wilson (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Tuesday's spring game against the Rays, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.

Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Banged up after collision
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wilson won't be available for Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles after being involved in a collision in the outfield during a recent workout, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Cora didn't specify what exact injury Wilson might be dealing with, but the 24-year-old is expected to make his return to action within the next few days. Wilson will likely begin the 2021 campaign at Triple-A Worcester or Double-A Portland.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Added to 60-man pool
Wilson has been added to Boston's 60-man player pool, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Wilson was added to the 40-man roster last November but was not initially included in the 60-man pool. He has some speed and flashed plenty of pop last year, hitting 18 homers between High-A and Double-A while slashing .269/.357/.492 between the two levels.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Opening year at Double-A
The Red Sox optioned Wilson to Double-A Portland on March 8.
Wilson, whom the Red Sox acquired from the Diamondbacks last April in the Blake Swihart trade, was added to the 40-man roster in November. Though his presence on the roster might improve his chances of reaching the majors in 2020, Wilson probably won't be at the top of the list for a callup if the Red Sox need another outfielder as the season unfolds. Wilson slashed .269/.357/.492 with 18 home runs and 13 stolen bases while splitting time between three affiliates in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Contract selected by Boston
Wilson's contract was purchased by the Red Sox on Wednesday.
The move prevents Wilson from being selected in the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The 23-year-old hit .269/.357/.492 at the High-A and Double-A levels last season, first in the Diamondbacks' organization and then in the Red Sox's system after he was traded for Blake Swihart.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Earns move back to Double-A
The Red Sox promoted Wilson from High-A Salem to Double-A Portland on Sunday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Acquired from the Red Sox in April in the deal that sent Blake Swihart to Arizona, Wilson slashed just .161/.307/.226 over 75 plate appearances at Portland before being demoted to Salem. Wilson found his form at the plate at the lower level, batting .342 with eight home runs in 45 games. That performance was enough for the Red Sox to give Wilson another look in the Eastern League....

Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Demoted to High-A
Wilson was demoted to High-A Salem on Saturday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
Wilson failed to impress since coming over in a trade for Blake Swihart in mid-May, hitting .161/.307/.226 with a 44.0 percent strikeout rate. He'll look to figure things out at an easier level before resuming his climb up the organizational ladder.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marcus Wilson: Sent to Boston
Wilson was traded from Arizona to Boston in exchange for Blake Swihart and international bonus pool money Friday.
Wilson began the 2019 season at Double-A Jackson but struggled to a .235 average with two homers, seven RBI and three stolen bases over 12 games. Perhaps a change in scenery will be just what he needs to turn things around at the dish.... See More ... See Less
