I saw this in the print edition of Baseball America today -
Rated the No. 1 prospect in the short-season New York-Penn League last year, [Mason] Williams needed just three months in the SAL before earning a promotion to high Class A. His plus-plus speed and center-field defense are his loudest tools, and he also offers a quick bat and average power. His arm grades as average as well.
Williams lost some of his appeal to league managers and scouts alike because of questions regarding his makeup. He reportedly caused a few headaches for the Charleston staff and turned off observers with the way he carried himself on the field. “He’s got tools but needs to be humbled,” a National League scout said.
Well, I guess that’s the good news and bad news on Williams, all in one shot, eh?
Shame – considering he’s probably one of the Yankees top three position player prospects in their system right now.
