    N.C. State's top position player is Wilson, a switch-hitter and plus runner who set the school stolen-base record with 30 in 2009 but didn't hit enough to get drafted. He moved to center field this spring and hit .381 but had just 12 steals thanks to a hip injury. Initially diagnosed as a groin pull, it turned out to be a stress reaction in his pelvis. He won't need surgery, but he will need rest and may not be able to do more than DH after signing. He hadn't played in the field since April.
