Kenny Wilson has elected free agency.

The 24-year-old outfielder spent the 2014 season bouncing around between three different organizations and five minor league teams, compiling a .246/.307/.331 slash line with two homers, 35 RBI, 31 stolen bases and a 111/31 K/BB mark over 447 at-bats. He's talented enough to generate interest on the open market, but isn't likely to make an impact at the major league level anytime soon.

Athletics claimed OF Kenny Wilson off waivers from the Blue Jays; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

It's the third new organization that Wilson has joined since April. The 24-year-old outfielder has good speed but he's a weak .239/.333/.338 hitter at Triple-A.

Blue Jays designated OF Kenny Wilson for assignment.

Wilson was plucked off waivers from the Twins back in May. He has struggled to the tune of .234/.312/.333 with two homers and 22 RBI across three minor league stops this season. He's unlikely to generate much interest on waivers, and is likely to return as minor league depth for the Jays.

Blue Jays claimed OF Kenny Wilson off waivers from the Twins; assigned him to Double-A New Hampshire.

Twins designated OF Kenny Wilson for assignment.

Twins claimed OF Kenny Wilson off waivers from the Blue Jays; optioned him to Double-A New Britain.
