Mariners outfield prospect Austin Wilson hit a home run and a double as part of a 2-for-5 night for Low-A Clinton.
Wilson knocked in six runs as part of the 16-13 slug fest, and sits at .309/.382/.495 with seven doubles, one triple, and three home runs for the season. He has the potential to be a force in the middle of the order, but he is surprisingly raw given the fact that he spent three years in college. He is a future corner outfielder, so he will have to hit in order to reach the major leagues. May 4 - 10:54 AM

Mariners prospect OF Austin Wilson hit his first home run of the season on Thursday for Low-A Clinton.

The 22-year-old was also 3-for-4 with two runs and a walk. The No. 49 overall selection in the 2013 draft, Wilson spent his professional debut last summer at Short-Season Everett, where he batted .241/.319/.414 with 11 doubles, six home runs and a 42/17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 56 games. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound outfielder is an impressive talent and loaded with upside, but he's also very raw for a player of his age and college background.

Mariners and second-rounder Austin Wilson reached an agreement on a $1.7 million bonus on June 21.

Wilson is receiving $590,000 more than the recommended slot value for the No. 49 overall selection. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound outfielder suffered a stress reaction in his right elbow during Stanford's opening series against Rice that limited him to only 31 games this spring. Overall, the junior batted .288/.387/.475 while trimming his once-concerning strikeout rate.
