Wilson went 3-for-5 with a double, two home runs, six RBI and two runs scored against Triple-A Reno on Sunday.
The soon-to-be 30-year-old outfielder had been sitting in the Mariners' system since 2005 until they opted to cut ties with him during the offseason. He tried to pick up with the Mets during the spring, but that relationship didn't last long, and he ultimately ended up with the Padres back in mid-May. He showed some decent power potential a few years back but hasn't really done much in the last two seasons, so a night like this was welcomed by him and his manager. He doesn't figure to be anything more than organizational depth at this point, but given the health of the Padres' outfield, there always seems to be a chance.
