My Scouting History: Austin Wilson, OF, Stanford (2013 Draft)

By
February 25, 2013

Austin Wilson is a guy I have seen quite a bit of over the past few seasons. Here’s a look at some Spring 2012 and Summer 2012 video and my thoughts after. I should preface this by saying that I wrote this before he got hurt this season — so we’ll see what impact that medical has on his draft year.

Updated Scouting Report: Austin Wilson, OF, Harvard-Westlake (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

By
May 3, 2010

I’ve seen Austin Wilson from the summer to the fall and back to the spring. The raw power is there, and this guy will not be one-dimensional. The most common comparison is Andre Dawson, but let me tell you something: Wilson isn’t going to have to wait until the 11th round and then feel completely low-balled and screwed when he gets drafted the way Dawson did. No, Wilson will be lucky to get to the 11th pick.

Austin Wilson has been on this site so much we should call it Austin Wilson Beginnings. Hey, I can’t help it. Put a guy like this in my backyard and I’ll do what I have to do every time. I have seen him several times in the high school season, hitting with those toy metal bats. We’ll have more on him from the spring coming soon.

Q&A with Austin Wilson, OF, Harvard-Westlake (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

By
March 29, 2010

Articulate, Intelligent, Ambitious, Educated and Talented. Talk about a five-tool guy.

In a strong man’s game populated with one-dimensional sluggers, Austin Wilson is too smart to fall into the trap of being what baseball expects him to be. He could sit back and try to pole everything and not worry about the strikeouts or the batting average, but that wouldn’t be an efficient use of his talent. Baseball Beginnings caught up with Wilson for this Q&A, touching on topics ranging from what kind of player he really believes he is going to be, to how he is going to achieve that goal.
