Cardinals' Justin Williams: Shipped to St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was traded to the Cardinals on Tuesday along with Genesis Cabrera and Roel Ramirez in exchange for Tommy Pham and international slot money, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Williams has primarily played right field for Triple-A Durham this season, a position at which he could fight for playing time with his new organization, with Cardinals right fielder Dexter Fowler struggling to a .179/.274/.301 line. Williams has knocked a bit of his own prospect shine off after hitting a mediocre .258/.313/.376 for Durham so far this year, though he's young for his level at just 22 years old.

Rays' Justin Williams: Headed back to Durham
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

Williams was just recalled by the Rays on Saturday, where he made his major league debut as a pinch hitter and grounded into a double play. He'll now return to the minors in favor of top prospect Willy Adames, who was recalled from Durham in a corresponding move. With Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) day-to-day, the team determined a reserve middle infielder was more important than a reserve corner outfielder at this moment in time, though look for Williams to be back with the team down the road.

Rays' Justin Williams: Called up for big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was called up by the Rays on Saturday.

Williams reaches the big leagues for the first time in his career. The 22-year-old has hit a mediocre .267/.323/.392 in 82 games for Triple-A Durham this season. He'll likely fill a backup role at the corner outfield positions while he remains with the club, though the Rays will likely give him a chance to show what he can do. Hoby Milner was optioned to Durham in a corresponding move.

Rays' Justin Williams: Still adjusting to Triple-A arms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is slashing .250/.324/.397 with 13 extra-base hits (eight doubles, five home runs) and 20 RBI over 174 plate appearances for Triple-A Durham thus far this season.

The promising outfielder hasn't quite been able to feast on Triple-A pitching the way he'd dominated with Double-A Montgomery last season. Williams slashed .301/.364/.489 with the Biscuits in 2017, a line partly comprised of 38 extra-base hits (21 doubles, three triples, 14 home runs) and 72 RBI over 409 plate appearances. Predictably, Williams is enduring an acclimation period akin to the one he went through with Double-A pitching in his first season at that level in 2016, when he hit just .250 over a 39-game sample before last season's aforementioned breakout. As was the case then, Williams is currently seeing a spike in strikeout rate, which currently sits at a career-high 24.1 percent. However, if his previous body of work is any indication, a correction is eventually in the cards, which would presumably lead to a much more impressive slash line overall.

Rays' Justin Williams: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned Williams to the minor leagues Sunday.

While the team press release doesn't specify where Williams will report to begin the 2018 campaign, there's a good chance the outfielder heads to Triple-A Durham after slashing an impressive .301/.364/.489 with Double-A Montgomery last season. The production is all the more impressive considering the 22-year-old was one of the youngest hitters in the Southern League in 2017.
