Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will attend training camp with the New York Yankees for the second straight season, his agent, Mark Rodgers, said in an interview with the MLB Network on Thursday and later confirmed to the Seattle Times.
Wilson’s baseball rights were traded last year from the Texas Rangers to the Yankees and he then spent six days in spring training with the Yankees in Tampa, Fla. Wilson ended up getting one at-bat in a game, striking out against Atlanta’s Max Fried.
Wilson also attended training camp for one day with the Rangers in 2014 and 2015.
It’s unclear when Wilson will attend Yankees’ camp as his offseason schedule is still being set. He learned on Wednesday that he will take part in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 27 in Orlando, Fla. He was named to the game as an injury replacement for Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers.
