      Phillies' Nick Williams: Receives invite to spring training

      Williams will join the Phillies in spring training this year, CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reports. It was debatable at the time who the best player the Phillies received in their haul for Cole Hamels was, but it seems clear now that Williams has the best chance to go down as the top returning piece in that deal. He has one of the best hit tools in the minors, and while he won't ever walk much, he managed to get his strikeouts under control last season. A toolshed, Williams should be able to go 20/20 with ease in his prime years, and there should be some .290 seasons mixed in if he can maintain the approach he showed in 2015. He has played 134 games at Double-A, so look for him to get assigned to Triple-A to start the year, with a chance for a callup sometime this summer.
