Nick Williams: August 12
Originally, I was advocating for Williams to stay in Triple-A for the remainder of the season, and get called up next spring. The buzz around him however has forced his arrival date up a couple of months, especially with Peter Bourjos being a trade chip.
Williams is hitting an impressive .310 over his last 10 games. His strikeouts and hustle are a concern, but Pete MacKanin and Larry Bowa have worked with players such as Odubel Herrera and helped make adjustments.
I expect Bourjos to be traded during the August waiver period, resulting in Williams getting a few more weeks in the minors before his promotion.
