Confirmed: Season over for Mason Williams


Via Josh Norris, top prospect Mason Williams will have surgery to repair damage to his left (non-throwing) labrum today. He is done for the season and hopefully will be 100% for Spring Training. There were some hints yesterday that he was going to miss the rest of the year with a shoulder problem, but now we have confirmation. The Curse of the RAB Prospect Watchâ„¢ strikes again, eh?

    Bummer. At least it’s his non-throwing shoulder I guess.

  2. Bryan L says:

    New prospect watch?

  3. kenthadley says:

    I think we should prospect watch someone from Boston’s system.

  4. Mike says:

    New prospect watch, my vote Matt Barnes!

  5. A.D. says:

    Hopefully doesn’t impact his offense going forward.

    Thoughts on where he starts next year? Continue at High A with a quick promotion possible?

    Let’s bend the rules and watch Jurickson Profa for the rest of the season… :D

    Is this the same level of surgery that Pineda had? I know he’s not a pitcher, non-throwing shoulder, etc., but I wonder to what degree the shoulder was damaged.
