Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, it seems, isn't just going to stroll around in street clothes Monday when he visits the Texas Rangers' camp in Surprise, Ariz.
The Rangers put out a news release Wednesday afternoon that said:
"Wilson is expected to participate in the Rangers major-league team work out on Monday morning and be in uniform for the team’s game with Cleveland at 1:05 p.m. MT that day at Surprise Stadium."
The Rangers acquired Wilson in December from the Colorado Rockies in the Class AAA phase of Rule 5 draft at the Winter Meetings.
At the time, Rangers officials said they hoped to convince Wilson to make a camp appearance and address the organization's minor-league players.
Wilson was eligible for selection because he played in the Rockies' system in 2010-11. An infielder, he batted .229 with 5 home runs and 26 RBI over 93 career games at Short-A Tri-City and Lo-A Asheville.
Colorado selected Wilson in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. He played football and baseball at North Carolina State before transferring to Wisconsin, where he only played football.
