Rangers select Seahawks’ Wilson in Rule 5 Draft

(Lake Buena Vista, FL)  –  Although he’s an established NFL star, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is still drawing attention from Major League Baseball.  The Texas Rangers selected Wilson in the minor league phase of Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft.  Wilson was available in the Rule 5 Draft after playing two seasons in the minor league system of the Colorado Rockies.  The Wisconsin Badgers product hit .229 with five homers and 26 RBI in 93 games of Class-A ball in 2010-11.
