Williams has been enjoying his time so far playing fall ball. He was recently asked about his time in Arizona.
"“I’ve been enjoying it on and off the field,” Williams said. “I’ve been with a great group of guys. Our team is awesome. And yeah, it feels a lot better actually, playing every day, playing top talent, because it’s a lot of learning.” (Mark Emery – MiLB.com)"
It doesn’t seem likely that the Texas Rangers will call up the young outfielder any time soon. But, Nick Williams is another great prospect the Texas Rangers have in their farm system. At some point Williams will get a chance with the Rangers, mainly because they could some more home grown talent in the outfield. By the time the Rangers need Williams to come up it should be expected the outfielder Shin-Soo Choo might be the team’s regular designated hitter.
During his last game on Saturday Williams went 2 for 3 and was hit by a pitch. Over the last 10 games Williams has a batting line of .297/.316/.514 with 3 doubles, 1 home run and 5 RBI. For the season he’s batting .267/.290/.417 with 4 doubles and 9 RBI over 15 games/60 at-bats.
