Yankees purchased the contract of OF Mason Williams from Double-A Trenton.

Williams is now protected from the Rule-5 draft. Williams was a high-ish profile prospect back in 2012, but his bat has fallen off in the years since. He batted just .223/.290/.304 at Double-A in 2014.

Yankees outfield prospect Mason Williams went 2-for-4 with a double for Double-A Trenton on Saturday, raising his season line to .218/.304/.291.

Williams has seen his prospect status dim significantly since he hit .298/.346/.474 across two levels in 2012. He has 33 strikeouts (13.2%) and 27 walks (10.8%) in 250 plate appearances, but has yet to have a real hot streak to help revive his prospect status.

Yankees prospect OF Mason Williams went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Tuesday for Double-A Trenton.

Williams batted .153 in 17 games at Trenton last season after an August promotion, and the 22-year-old appears to be headed down a similar unproductive path this season with a .539 OPS through 35 games. That being said, Williams’ .217 BABIP and respectable 23/19 strikeout-to-walk ratio this season suggests his batting average should improve (at least to an extent).

Yankees outfield prospect Mason Williams was arrested early Thursday in Tampa, Florida on a DUI charge.

An officer spotted the 21-year-old Williams weaving in and out of lanes and pulled him over. Williams submitted to a breathalyzer and passed with a 0.06 blood-alcohol reading (under the Florida limit of 0.08), but he did not pass the field sobriety test. He was booked into the Hillsborough County jail and later released on $500 bail.

Yankees prospect outfielder Mason Williams said Wednesday that said his left shoulder is close to 100 percent that he should be back to "full practice" in two weeks.

Williams required season-ending surgery last August to repair a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, but he expects to be ready to start 2013 with High-A Tampa. Regarded as the Yankees' top prospect, the 21-year-old outfielder batted .298/.346/.474 with 11 homers, 20 stolen bases and an .820 OPS last season between Class A and High-A.
