Boston Red Sox Sign Speedy Outfielder

It's a return to the Boston Red Sox for him.

The Boston Red Sox have signed outfielder Marcus Wilson to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training. Wilson, a former second-round pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks, made his Major League debut last season with the Seattle Mariners, appearing in three games.

He then spent the rest of the season at Triple-A Tacoma, slashing a lackluster .218/.344/.464, with 16 home runs, 47 RBIs, 14 stolen bases and 50 runs scored over 91 games played.

The 26-year-old spent two seasons in Boston's minor league system after being acquired from the Diamondbacks in a trade that involved Blake Swihart. This marks a return to the Red Sox organization for Wilson, who will likely provide depth for Triple-A Worcester.

For his minor-league career, spanning 692 games, Wilson holds a .251/.353/.410 triple-slash line, with 70 home runs, 323 RBIs, 109 stolen bases and 382 runs scored. Photo Credit:  Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports
