• Whos Hot: Minor League June Edition

    It was another good month for Yankee prospects, as evidenced by the recent promotions. Injuries continue to be a problem throughout the system, but some strong performances are making up for those holes in the lineups.

    Mason Williams (OF, Charleston A):
    Williams was one of the big names given a promotion to start July, and he definitely earned it. In his last month in Charleston, the young outfielder hit .351/.381/.617, finally finding some power. He hit five homers in June, along with eight doubles and a triple. The knock on Williams has always been his lack of power, but at the same time, there has always been the possibility of it developing (given his youth and the fact that his father was an NFL wide receiver). Perhaps we are starting to see that progress, in which case we are in for some exciting prospect watching.
