N.C. State's Wilson struggles to hit in minors again

Russell Wilson has struggled to hit in his summer as a minor leaguer in the Colorado Rockies system.

Wilson, the N.C. State quarterback, was hitting just .207 through Sunday for the Tri-City Dust Devils. He was listed as a center fielder when drafted in the fourth round in June but has been playing second base in the minors. So
far, he has two homers and three steals but has been caught four times in 22 games. Wilson has 22 at-bats.

This is the second summer where Wilson has struggled to hit in the minors. He hit just .205 for Gastonia in 2009.

Wilson may make it in baseball, but he needs at-bats – and plenty of them – to adjust to wood bats and the pace of professional baseball.
