Williams ranks 24th on Law’s midseason top 25 prospects list

By

It’s only late-May, but Keith Law posted an updated list of the top 25 prospects in the minors today (subs. req’d). RHP Dylan Bundy of the Orioles claims the top spot with OF Bryce Harper now in the big leagues, and Baltimore also owns the number three prospect in SS Manny Machado. SS Jurickson Profar of the Rangers is sandwiched between them at number two.

OF Mason Williams check in at #24, up ten spots from KLaw’s preseason ranking. “He’s not walking, but he’s also making a ton of contact, and he’s barely begun to fill out physically,” he wrote. “There’s a lot of projection involved in this ranking but he’s a favorite of many scouts (and of me) because of the substantial upside here.” LHP Manny Banuelos was ineligible for the list because he’s on the DL, but I confirmed with Law that he would have made the top 25 as well. He ranked 23rd on the preseason list.

    Go Mason! And Manny!

    Always nice to see a top prospect jump ten spots, even though it’s early.

    youre on a conversation based relationship with KLaw? impressive

  4. Smart Guy says:

    cant wait to see them up in the bigs for a couple of weeks then see them being traded in the offseason for questionmarks!

    If Campos hadn’t gotten hurt, I wonder if he would have been up there?

  6. Brian S. says:

    It would be great if he could get that wOBA back up. That .334 he has right now is weak.

    Obviously K-law had to put a Yankee in the top 25 list in order to have his largest market care about this list.
