This fall, Wilson was among seven Cardinals farmhands invited to participate in the Arizona Fall League. He was the least-experienced of the group, with just 32 games at the A-Advanced level under his belt.
Though not a regular starter, when called upon in the desert, Wilson responded. The right-handed hitter put up a solid line of .304/.373/.413/.786 line in 46 at-bats over 13 games.
For Salt River, Wilson plated an average of one runner per game. The production was not surprising, given his 72 RBI in 97 Midwest League contests earlier this summer.
In this exclusive interview, Wilson discusses his Cardinals career to date, including his recent time in the AFL.
