Yankees' prospect arrested for DUI
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/25/2013) Yankees center field prospect Mason Williams was arrested early Thursday morning by Tampa police and charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence (DUI), according to The Journal News and Tampa Police Department.
Williams is playing for the Yankees' Class A affiliate in Tampa. He's batting .271 with a .400 on-base percentage through 18 games. He has one triple, five doubles, five RBI, 12 runs and 15 walks.
(2/5/2013) Yankees senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman said on Tuesday that will be interesting to see if outfield prospects Slade Heathcott and Mason Williams can take the next step this season. Williams batted .298 with 11 homers, 35 RBI and 20 stolen bases between two Class A stops last season before suffering a torn left labrum in August. "At some point in the not too distant future, they will be [together]," Newman said. "We have two legitimate center fielders in Williams and Heathcott. That will be an interesting developmental issue -- how we allocate the center-field time -- but we're not there yet. They can both fly. They both hit left-handed. They both throw well. Slade's got more power, but Mason has hit for a better average to this point."
