Yankees transferred OF Mason Williams to the 60-day disabled list.

Mason Williams will have right shoulder surgery on Friday.

Williams jammed his shoulder in June and continues to have discomfort. The surgery will end his season. It's too bad, as the 23-year-old was having a nice bounceback year prior to the injury.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Mason Williams (shoulder) isn't guaranteed to make it back this season.

Williams had labrum surgery on his right shoulder back in August of 2012, and he was placed on the disabled list last month after the shoulder popped out of its socket. "I can’t say,’’ Cashman said when asked if the center fielder will make it back from the DL this season. "He had surgery on the same shoulder. If the rehab doesn’t go well he might need surgery.’’

Yankees transferred OF Mason Williams to the 60-day disabled list.

Williams was placed on the DL last month with right shoulder inflammation. The Yankees don't need Williams now that Jacoby Ellsbury is back from his knee injury.

Mason Williams still feels discomfort in his right shoulder when throwing.

He'll get a few days off to see if rest helps. Williams has been on the disabled list since June 20 with inflammation in his right shoulder and the 23-year-old outfielder is obviously nowhere close to returning.

Yankees placed OF Mason Williams on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with right shoulder inflammation.

Williams' shoulder popped out of its socket when he dived back to first base on a pickoff attempt Friday. The ailment isn't considered serious, but the club didn't want to rush him back to action.

Mason Williams underwent a precautionary MRI on his injured shoulder.

The results of the exam aren't available yet, but Williams is only expected to miss a few days. The outfielder's shoulder popped out of its socket when he dived back to first base on a pickoff attempt Friday. "It feels fine. I just landed awkwardly on my shoulder. That’s it," Williams said.

Mason Williams was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with an apparent injury.

Fri, Jun 19, 2015 09:12:00 PM

Mason Williams homered for his first major league hit in Friday's loss to the Orioles.

It was a two-run shot off Ubaldo Jimenez in the fourth inning. The 23-year-old didn't have a home run through 235 plate appearances between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, but he managed to go deep in his first major league game. Go figure. With Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) still sidelined, the plan calls for Williams to start in center field against right-handed pitching. However, those in mixed fantasy leagues have can do better.

Yankees recalled OF Mason Williams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Williams was considered one of the top young outfield talents in the sport just a couple years ago, but he had a miserable 2013 and 2014. The 23-year-old has turned it around a bit this season, batting .318/.397/.398 in 54 games at Triple-A, but he shouldn't be counted on much from a fantasy perspective. Williams will serve as a utility outfielder for New York in his first taste of major league action.

Mason Williams will be called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of the Yankees' series opener Friday night against the Orioles.

Williams has hit .318/.397/.398 with 13 stolen bases in 54 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 23-year-old fell off most top-100 prospect lists after a disappointing 2013 campaign and probably won't play enough for the Yankees to carry fantasy relevance.
Thu, Jun 11, 2015 11:49:00 AM

Yankees prospect outfielder Mason Williams has been promoted from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

After back-to-back disappointing seasons, Williams batted .317/.407/.375 with seven doubles, 11 RBI, and 11 stolen bases over his first 34 games in Double-A this season. It's nice to see, but the 23-year-old still has some work to do to be taken seriously as a prospect again.
