SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - The Texas Rangers have no plans to put Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson at the plate.

Manager Ron Washington says it’s not a good idea to let Wilson hit in an exhibition game. Washington says Wilson hasn’t seen any pitches and that it’s too risky to have him bat.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback is set to be at spring training on Monday and the former minor league second baseman might take part in infield drills. Washington says he wants Wilson to just enjoy his day at the ballpark.

Wilson is expected to participate in a team workout and then be in uniform for the game against Cleveland.

The quarterback played 93 games over two seasons in Colorado’s minor leagues. He didn’t play above the Class A level in 2010 and 2011.

Texas selected Wilson from the Rockies in the Triple-A portion of baseball’s draft at the winter meetings in December.
