Triple-A Memphis placed Williams on its 7-day injured list Monday due to a hamstring strain, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Williams hasn't appeared in game for Memphis since July 2, so he's presumably been nursing the injury for the past month before the affiliate decided to deactivate him. Memphis called up corner-outfield prospect Alec Burleson from Double-A Springfield to fill Williams' spot on the roster. Over 16 games with Memphis this season, Williams is slashing .250/.276/.446 with three home runs and one stolen base.
