DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can we expect from Austin Wilson longterm? I know he's a little old for his league, but coming from Stanford, wouldn't he benefit from working on his swing at a lower level??
(ryan from montreal)
It would be really concerning if Wilson wasn't doing this in the Midwest League. That said, I'm a sucker for a big, physical athlete like Wilson. I'm highly skeptical that he puts it together enough to even develop into an average regular, but a guy can dream, can't he? (Mark Anderson)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hearing anything positive about Austin Wilson so far? The early numbers look good, but he's pretty old for Low-A ball. What are people's eyes seeing?
(James from Butte)
I wasn't impressed early on, but will reserve judgment until I either see him again or get an updated report. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mark. I was wondering if you could tell us anything about Austin Wilson and what people are saying about him this spring. What are the chances he's a top-100 (or better) guy by the end of the year? Thanks!
(Scott from Sacramento)
Wilson is a tough guy for me. I absolutely love the physicality and the potential of his raw tools, but I've never seen the feel for the game to project him for considerable MLB success. I'd love to be wrong because there's a lot to like physically and it could be fun to watch if it all comes together. (Mark Anderson)
2013-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)3 Years from now will people think Austin Wilson is a stud prospect? Also, can you talk about the Stanford swing in more detail?
(Alex from Tampa)
No. There are a couple of three-year alternatives for Wilson, but neither is stud prospect. Either he struggles in the minors which is perfectly reasonable or he's already a big leaguer in three years. Players from advanced colleges (or anybody) isn't a stud prospect at age 24 1/2.

And some indiscretion in executing the Stanford Swing was responsible for my last breakup, so I'd rather not. (Zachary Levine)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Austin Wilson prove all his doubters wrong next year?
(Reed from Seattle)
The physical package is certainly impressive, but I have never been a big believer in it all coming together for Wilson. The swing needs a lot of work and the pitch recognition would need to follow suit as well. I think he can get to the big leagues eventually, but I don't think it is going to be as an impactful everyday player. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)I know Austin Wilson stock has been falling but whats his upside?
(Jim from SoCal)
Wilson is going to have to overcome the Stanford stigma, but I still believe he can be an everyday regular. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-07 10:30:00 (link to chat)I was disappointed to see the O's pass on Austin Wilson at 37 in favor of Josh Hart, and Devin Williams or Jon Denney at 61 in favor of Chance Sisco (who various articles have described in the last couple of years as a P, 3B and SS). Did they really make the right moves in skipping over these talents for the players picked?
(David from Virginia)
Well, Williams came off the board to the Brewers six or seven picks before Baltimore had a shot in the second round. But I understand your general point. Wilson was a likely first rounder entering the spring and missed a bunch of time due to injury. He has already turned down a few million (when drafted out of high school) so I'd imagine he is angling for 1st round money regardless of where selected.

Denney, likewise, was set to go in the first round before high level decision makers started cooling on him as a sure fit behind the dish. I could see a team on the phone with him early this morning to try and work out a deal, but we are getting close to the point where he might be better off going to Arkansas.

Sisco won't command anywhere near the money Denney and Wilson would, so Baltimore has more financial flexibility entering Day 2. Let's see how they use it. (Nick Faleris on the MLB Draft)
