Mason Williams optioned to Triple-A


Yankees outfielder Mason Williams has been reinstated from the 60-day Disabled List and option to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Williams, who was recovering from shoulder surgery he had in August, will look to make his return to the bigs later this year. After struggling for a couple years, Williams made head waves last season, putting himself back on the Yankees radar.

Once considered a top prospect in New York’s farm system, Williams is on the outside looking in. Last season, the 24-year-old hit .286 with four extra-base hits in eight games. With Double-A Trenton and Scranton last year, Williams hit .318/.397/.398 combined.

The way Ben Gamel has been playing this season, it seems as if Williams is the third or fourth best option for the Yankees come September.
