Texas general manager Jon Daniels received a text from Wilson’s agent confirming that Wilson plans to show up March 3. The Rangers are unsure how long Wilson will be in camp.
The Super Bowl-winning quarterback was selected by the Rangers in the Rule 5 draft and hoped he’d make an appearance at spring training, if for nothing else than to talk to the younger players about leadership qualities.
Wilson played collegiate baseball at North Carolina State and was drafted by Colorado in the fourth round of the 2010 draft.
