• June Prospect of the Month: Mason Williams

    Our Prospect of the Month award for June goes to (former) Charleston outfielder Mason Williams. Williams, the fastest rising star in the system over the offseason, had a tremendous output last month, breaking out of a slump that plagued him in much of May by hitting an impressive .351/.381/.617 in June. The most impressive, and encouraging, part of his performance was the explosion in power production. In addition to the eight doubles and one triple he hit last month, Williams added five home runs, including a stretch of hitting four home runs in five games from June 21st to June 25th.

    Much like his hot start to the season, Williams didnít show much interest in taking his walks, drawing a total of just three all month, but unlike that early season contact-fest, the strikeouts were there for him this month, 15 of them to be exact. A 15-3 strikeout to walk ratio isnít exactly a good thing, but given the combination of average and power, and the five bases he stole while being caught just once, itís definitely something everyone can live with if itís sustainable.

    If you accept the fact that by "rich man's John Olerud", he'd have had at least as good of a career slash as Olerud did, and that Johnson's

    Not more than borderline. Remember all the super-powerful guys who were playing 1b during his career, especially in the AL. He would have had a tough
