      White Sox's Nick Williams: Designated for assignment

      Nick Williams was designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.Williams had started three of the last five games ahead of highly touted prospect Andrew Vaughn in left field. That evidently didn't mean the White Sox thought too highly of him, however, as he's no longer deemed worthy of a 40-man roster spot. Williams has hit .138/.200/.224 in limited action over the last three years, so he seemingly has a good chance of passing through waivers unclaimed.

      White Sox's Nick Williams: Called up, starting Thursday

      Nick Williams' contract was selected by the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. He's starting in left field for Thursday's game against Kansas City.The White Sox placed Billy Hamilton (hamstring) on the injured list Thursday, and Williams will take his place on the major-league roster. While Andrew Vaughn should see most of the playing time in left field in Hamilton's absence, Williams is getting the first crack at it, perhaps because righty Brad Keller is starting for the Royals.

      White Sox's Nick Williams: Fails to win job

      Nick Williams was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.Williams and Billy Hamilton were competing for a bench outfield spot, with the Chicago White Sox needing an extra option in the wake of Eloy Jimenez's long-term pectoral injury and Adam Engel's short-term hamstring concern. For his part, Williams made a fairly strong case this spring, hitting .300/.364/.475, but it's Hamilton who will win the job. Williams isn't on the team's 40-man roster, so he's not necessarily the next man up in the event of another injury.
