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.

Rays' Justin Williams: Joins 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was added to the Rays' 40-man roster Monday.

Williams will be ineligible to be selected in the Rule 5 draft now that he's on the 40-man roster. He slashed .301/.364/.489 over 96 games at Double-A Montgomery last season, while he hit 14 home runs and logged 72 RBI.

Rays' Justin Williams: Surging late in season at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams, 22, is batting .400 with four home runs and 13 RBI over his last 10 games for Double-A Montgomery.

The recent power surge gives Williams a career-best 14 home runs in 2017. Perhaps most importantly, after showing extremely poor patience at the plate over the last two seasons, Williams has completely reversed course, drawing a career-high 35 walks while fanning just 66 times in 91 games. He is slashing .303/.367/.500 on the year. His stock is trending upward heading into the 2018 campaign.
