Outfield Prospects Mason Williams & Ben Gamel Promoted To Trenton
The Trenton Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced Thursday that outfielders Mason Williams and Ben Gamel along with LHP Rigoberto Arrebato have been promoted to the team from Class A-Advanced Tampa. Outfielder Cody Grice has been transferred to Tampa.
Williams, rated preseason as the #1 prospect in the Yankees organization by Baseball America, is in uniform but not expected to be in the lineup Thursday night at 7:05 at ARM & HAMMER Park against the Harrisburg Senators. In 100 games with Tampa this season, the 21-year-old batted .261 with three home runs, 24 RBI and 15 stolen bases.
Gamel, also 21 years old, played in 95 games for the T-Yanks this season and hit .272 with three home runs, 49 RBI and 21 steals. The Florida native was a 10th-round pick by the Yankees in 2010 from Bishop Kenny High School (Jacksonville, FL).
Arrebato returns for his second stint with the Thunder this season. In nine previous appearances with the club the lefty went 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA (15.1 IP, 13 H, 5 R, 20 K). With Tampa he has gone 2-2 with a 1.88 in 21 overall outings.
