New York Yankees 2012 Minor League Update, 06/04-06/10: Mason Williams Has Big Week

Adam Warren pitched his second consecutive gem, earning himself Pitcher of the Week honors. Also, a familiar face, and, arguably the Yankees top hitting prospect, Mason Williams, hit well enough to out-duel Cito Culver for this week's Hitter of the Week spotlight.

Pitcher Of The Week: Adam Warren (7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BBs, 4 Ks, Win)

Adam Warren followed up his best start of the 2012 season, with his second best start of the season. Over the last two weeks he's pitched 14 innings, allowed eight hits, no runs and two walks. He's also struck out 10.

Although he's on a bit of a hot streak, I'll say the same thing I said last week, regarding Warren: he's a fifth starter, at best, and most likely a career long reliever/bullpen guy, at the major league level.

Hitter Of The Week: Mason Williams (.429 average, 4 Doubles, 1 HR, 2 RBIs, 2 BBs, 3 Ks, 2 SBs)

With Dellin Betances and Manny Banuelos struggling big time, Mason Williams – along with Charleston teammate, Gary Sanchez – is probably the Yankees top prospect mid-way through the 2012 season.

The 20-year-old is having a very solid season in Low A. He's batting .306, with an on-base percentage of .362, four home runs and 16 stolen bases. To go along with his impressive batting line, he's striking out at an extremely low rate. Not to mention his overall athleticism and defense.

His upside is a borderline an All-Star centerfielder.
