Russell Wilson Makes Plate Appearance For Yankees

In a Grapefruit League game against the Atlanta Braves on Friday, Wilson - while donning No. 73 - pinch-hit for Yankees star Aaron Judge, marking the QB's first professional at bat since June 2011.

Left-handed reliever Max Fried worked against Wilson for a 2-2 count.

Frazier is reportedly only dealing with a slight headache now, and is expected to be a couple days away from being able to take batting practice.

Wilson never had an at-bat in a spring game with Texas.

That also puts Wilson ahead of Adam Lind, who showed up before the game, a duffel bag packed with bats slung over his shoulder, after Brian Cashman rescued him from "Camp Jobless" down I-75 in Bradenton. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said at the NFL Combine he didn't have a problem with his Super Bowl-winning quarterback working out with the Yankees. "Some guys are maybe traveling around the world, he's playing baseball".

The Rangers traded Wilson to the Yankees for future considerations earlier this month.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll gave a scouting report on Wilson on Thursday while at the National Football League scouting combine. "We're hoping that he's going to start putting the ball in the right field a little bit more and going with the pitch. Aside from that, curve ball is still giving him a problem, as it always did, you know, back in the day". "So we will see what happens". I went up there in attack mode. I think there's tremendous upside and I know he thinks that too.
