C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Reds have signed outfielder Mason Williams to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 26-year-old outfielder has gotten brief cups of coffee with the Yankees each of the last three seasons. He has a career .281/.313/.391 slash line with one homer in 68 plate appearances. The former top 100 prospect will compete for a backup outfielder job when camp opens.

Yankees sent OF Mason Williams outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Williams was designated for assignment by the Yanks at the end of June and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 25-year-old former top prospect is a .281/.313/.391 career hitter in the majors.

Yankees designated OF Mason Williams for assignment.

That clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Chris Carter, who was just called up to New York. Williams owns a .281 average with one homer over 64 big-league at-bats. The 25-year-old will return to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre if he clears waivers.

Yankees optioned OF Mason Williams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The move was made after Sunday's game. Williams went 4-for-16 (.250) during his brief stay in the majors.

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

The prevailing thought was that Aaron Hicks would be heading to the disabled list with an Achilles tendon injury he suffered on Thursday, but that isn't the case. Williams will provide depth in the outfield for at least a couple of games while the club decides how they'd like to proceed on Hicks.

Mason Williams is on his way to Oakland to join up with the Yankees.

That's a pretty good indication that Aaron Hicks will be placed on the disabled list after suffering an Achilles tendon injury on Thursday night. Williams, a former top-100 prospect, has batted just .243/.289/.275 in 59 games this season at the Triple-A level and probably won't hold any fantasy relevance with New York.

Yankees optioned OF Mason Williams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Williams returned to action this week after missing time with a knee injury early on in camp. He collected one hit in five Grapefruit League at-bats this spring. Williams appeared in 12 games for the Bombers last year and should make more cameos in New York this summer.

Mason Williams will be sidelined for two weeks due to inflammation of his left patella tendon.

It will push back his Grapefruit League debut but shouldn't be a huge problem as long as he can avoid a setback. However, it could affect Williams' chances of winning an Opening Day bench job.

Mason Williams is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

Aaron Hicks was activated off the disabled list on Tuesday, but he will sit for Williams against right-hander Alex Cobb. Since being called up on September 14, the 25-year-old Williams is 5-for-13 with a double and three runs scored. He will bat eighth on Wednesday.

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

Williams will give the Yankees additional outfield depth with Aaron Judge likely to miss the remainder of the season because of an oblique strain. Williams, 25, batted .296/.313/.376 with zero homers and one stolen base in 138 plate appearances this year at the Triple-A level after returning in July from right shoulder surgery. He was considered a top prospect not long ago, but there's not much fantasy appeal here. Rob Refsnyder figures to pick up most of the playing time left by Judge's absence.

Yankees activated OF Mason Williams from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Williams is finally back to 100 percent after undergoing shoulder surgery last August. He hit .304 during a 12-game rehab assignment for the GCL Yankees and High-A Tampa. The 24-year-old appeared in eight games for the Yankees last season, hitting .286 with one homer and three RBI.
Mon, Jul 18, 2016 02:15:00 PM

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

Williams underwent surgery last August to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, and his recovery is still progressing. It's unclear where he's at in that recovery, but the team obviously isn't holding its breath for a return in the very near future.

Yankees placed OF Mason Williams on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Williams is still recovering from last season's labrum surgery. It's unclear how much longer he'll be sidelined.

Yankees activated OF Mason Williams from the 60-day disabled list.

Williams jammed his right shoulder back in June and eventually underwent season-ending surgery. The 24-year-old will hope for better luck in 2016.
