Agent: Russell Wilson plans to appear at spring training with Rangers
The Rangers start spring training in Surprise, AZ on Feb. 16 when the pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report.
Wilson played baseball in high school and was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 41st round of the 2007 MLB draft before going to North Carolina State to play quarterback.
Wilson was drafted again by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB draft and played second base in Single-A ball for two seasons with Tri-City and Asheville.
The Rangers acquired Wilson from the Rockies in December in the MLB Rule 5 draft. Wilson led the Seahawks to a Super Bowl title over the Denver Broncos last night, completing 18 of 25 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns.
