Scouting Report / Bio: Has a large, athletic frame. Wilson has a well-balanced approach and can drive ball into gaps or hit the occasional home run.  He is somewhat raw as a catcher, but has the tools to be a plus defender.  He battled a recurring staph infection under his left armpit during the 2006 season which may have hindered his offensive production.

Future Outlook: Backup catcher at higher levels.  Could be Chris Iannetta's backup in 2009.
