Buzz: Mason now Yanks top prospect over Manny

By Andrew Marchand

A recurring feature of the blog, Buzz, will follow Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances, as well as other top Yankee prospects, all season long.

Keith Law, ESPN Insider, says that Mason Williams, the 20-year-old phenom, has moved past Banuelos has the Yankees' top prospect. Law spent some time at Single-A Charleston and left impressed. Law writes.
" Charleston center fielder Mason Williams, the top prospect in the Yankees' organization right now (given Manny Banuelos' severe control problems in Triple-A), showed his broad base of skills Friday night, including excellent range in center field and good reads on balls hit into the gaps. At the plate, he glided on to his front side when I saw him last year, but is now keeping his weight back much better and has more time to recognize and react to changes in speed.
