STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Former Pawtucket resident Mason Williams is finishing up an excellent first season in the New York Yankees’ farm system.

A fourth-round draft pick in 2010, Williams just turned 20 years old on Sunday. He has been ranked the No. 6 prospect in New York’s farm system by the River Avenue Blues website.
