SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Russell Wilson is getting on the diamond again.

The Texas Rangers expect Seattle's Super Bowl-winning quarterback to participate in a team workout and then be in uniform for a Cactus League game when Wilson visits camp Monday.

Wilson tweeted last week his plans to visit the camp.

The Rangers selected Wilson from the Colorado Rockies in the Triple-A portion of baseball's December draft at the winter meetings.

After playing football and baseball at North Carolina State, Wilson played parts of the 2010 and 2011 seasons in Colorado's organization The second baseman hit .229 with five homers in 93 professional games, none above the Class A level.

He then transferred to Wisconsin to play football. He just finished his second NFL season with the Seahawks, with a win earlier this month over Denver in the Super Bowl.
