Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Balanced stance, slight bat wrap, mild load, tries to get leverage, above-average bat speed; struggles to shorten up, will get off balance on off-speed and expands the zone high on velo, moderate swing-and-miss, struggles against LHPs.
Power 40 Fringe-average raw pull power generated by bat speed and leverage in swing; will generate extra bases with speed.
Baserunning/Speed 70 Average 3.97 home to first on multiple clocks, raw speed, quick to accelerate gets to second gear quickly, aggressive, still developing stolen base utility.
Glove 55 Average instincts and reads in center, speed allows for plus range and ability to close on fly balls in the gaps, should stick in center but has utility for corner spots
Arm 50 Average arm, accurate with moderate carry

The former fourth-rounder for the Cubs, Wilson lacks size but possesses above-average quickness and speed. Combine that with a solid arm and glove he profiles as a solid bench outfielder. However, without adjustments in the swing, advanced pitchers will continue to cause struggles giving an overall profile of fourth outfielder.
