|Mac Williamson could need Tommy John surgery |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/28/14) Giants outfielder Mac Williamson has an apparent injury to his right ulner collateral ligament and could potentially need Tommy John surgery, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Williamson flashed some power with high Class A San Jose last season, hitting .292/.375/.504 with 25 home runs in 520 at-bats. He has posted a .318/.420/.506 line with San Jose this season. Tommy John surgery would knock him out for the remainder of 2014, though he could be ready for the beginning of the 2015 season.
|Giants hand out 26 non-roster spring invites |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/13/14) The Giants announced Monday they extended non-roster invitations to 26 players. They were 16 pitchers, four catchers, four infielders and two outfielders.
The pitchers included prospects Clayton Blackburn, Tyson Blach and Kyle Crick. The remaining non-roster pitchers include Jason Berken, Brett Bochy, Jose Casilla, Rafael Dolis, J.C. Gutierrez, Chris Heston, Derek Law, Mitch Lively, Kameron Loe, Adam Reifer, Sandy Rosario, Dan Runzler and Mason Tobin.
The position players included prospects Joe Panik and Mac Williamson. The other non-roster position players include Jeff Arnold, Guillermo Quiroz, Andrew Susac, Ben Turner, Chris Dominguez, Brandon Hicks, Mark Minicozzi and Javier Herrera.
|Giants outfield prospect Mac Williamson was a standout performer in the hitter-friendly California League (high Class A) in 2013. He finished tied for third in home runs (25), eighth in RBI (89) and 11th in slugging percentage (.504). Williamson also finished with a .292 average, .375 on-base percentage, 31 doubles, 94 runs, 51 walks and 10 stolen bases in 136 games for Class A San Jose. Williamson has been nothing short of outstanding offensively since being selected in the third round of the 2012 draft. He has .298/.375/.521/.896 slash line through 169 games. His power is his best tool, and the Giants hope he will one day develop into a middle-of-the-order hitter. However, the 2014 season will be a good test as Williamson moves up to face advanced pitching. Though he led his team in walks last season, his pitch-recognition skills have been spotty at times, especially against breaking balls. Williamson might be another year or two away from making a Fantasy impact, but his upside makes him worth holding onto in long-term keeper formats.
