Baseball career

Amateur career

Wilson played college baseball for the Florida State University Seminoles under head coach Mike Martin.

Professional career

Wilson was selected with the first overall pick in the 1994 MLB Draft by the New York Mets. In his minor league career, he was billed alongside Jason Isringhausen and Bill Pulsipher as a future Mets star. The three were dubbed by sportswriters and fans as "Generation K".

On July 28, 2000, he was traded to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. In 2002, he was granted free agency, and then signed with the Cincinnati Reds. In 2004, he was a free agent again, but quickly re-signed with the Reds.

In 2004, Wilson had a career-high 11 wins and 6 losses in 29 games.

On March 21, 2007, Wilson was released by the Reds, another setback as he tried to come back from shoulder surgery.

Wilson played for the Reno Silver Sox of the Golden Baseball League in 2008, before his release on June 8.
