It may not be the splashy news Yankees fans are hoping for, but Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, has been confirmed to be in attendance for Yankees spring training for the second consecutive year.
Per Jon Morosi, Wilson’s agent, Mark Rodgers, confirmed on MLB Network Radio that the Seattle signal caller, fresh off his playoff elimination a week ago, will be in Tampa again this year.
Russell Wilson will attend spring training with the #Yankees this year, as he did in 2018, his @MLB agent, Mark Rodgers, just told us on @MLBNetworkRadio. @MLBNetwork @Seahawks

It remains to be seen exactly how much Wilson will participate in camp, and if he will get a chance to redeem his lone plate appearance in 2018 which ended in a strikeout.
