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.

He appeared to injure his shoulder while diving back into first base. He remained in the game to run the bases but was replaced by Chris Young defensively the following frame. The Yankees should have an update on his status shortly.

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.
Jun 11 - 11:49 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.
May 21 - 4:11 PM

Yankees optioned OF Mason Williams to Double-A Trenton.

Williams hit .357/.412/.714 in his 17 plate appearances this spring. The former top prospect is in need of a bounce-back season after producing two straight disappointing campaigns.
Mar 20 - 9:28 AM

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.
