In the wake of Aaron Judge’s right oblique injury, the New York Yankees have called up Mason Williams fill the void.
Williams was called upon in 2015 but would only play in eight games before being shut down by the afore mentioned injury.
In those eight games, the speedster slashed .286/.318/.571 with a home run and a perfect fielding percentage in centerfield.
This season he spent 31 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in which he slashed .296/.313/.376 with 23 RBI in 125 at-bats.
The 25-year old was taken in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft from West Orange HS (Winter Garden, FL) and the Yankees will be hoping his injuries are a thing of the past so he could help the team continue to push towards the postseason.
