Don't let Mac Williamson's 25 years of age fool you. Unlike Jarrett Parker, who also finally got the call late last year at age 26, he's an actual prospect. He's just a little behind because he lost the 2014 season to Tommy John surgery. He showed good power and plate discipline -- the stuff studs are made of -- throughout his minor-league career, and his strikeout rate shouldn't preclude him from hitting for average. Now, it's just a matter of him finding playing time on a veteran ballclub. Because he's already in his prime and no help defensively, he'll need to capitalize on whatever opportunity he's given, and he'll probably get one given the injury histories of Denard Span and Angel Pagan. For now, though, Williamson is just a low-end NL-only choice.
Giants OF Mac Williamson was called up from Triple-A on Wednesday, Hank Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle reports. With the Triple-A season now over, Williamson will join the Giants after hitting .249/.370/.439 in 54 games for Sacramento. He'll simply provide outfield depth over the final few weeks.
The Giants re-assigned 11 players to minor-league camp Tuesday: catchers Aramis Garcia and Ty Ross, second baseman Kelby Tomlinson, shortstops Carlos Triunfel and Christian Arroyo, outfielder Mac Williamson and pitchers Cory Gearrin, Chris Stratton, Ty Blach, Kyle Crick and Adalberto Mejia.
Giants outfield prospect Mac Williamson will in fact undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The procedure will be performed by Dr. James Andrews, and Williamson will likely be sidelined for the remainder of the 2014 season.
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.
The Giants re-assigned right-handers Kyle Crick, Clayton Blackburn, Chris Heston, Jose Casilla, Sandy Rosario and Rafael Dolis, catchers Jeff Arnold and Ben Turner, outfielders Mac Williamson and Javier Herrera, left-handers Ty Blach and infielder Joe Panik to minor-league camp on Thursday.
