Williams Building Up The Shoulder

Mason Williams was in the midst of another stellar season, hitting a combined .298 with a career-high eleven home runs between low-A Charleston and high-A Tampa, when a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder cut his year short. He is down at the minor league complex rehabbing the shoulder and he says he's set to resume baseball activities soon.

"I feel like I did well this season," Williams said. "It's definitely heart breaking getting hurt late in the season and I definitely wanted to stay and complete my first full season, but that didn't happen. I'm here though trying to fix my shoulder and get it stronger for next season."

He was blistering hot in the Florida State League too when he went down with the injury, hitting .389 with a pair of home runs in his previous ten games.

"I was very disappointed," he admitted. "At the time we were making a playoff run and there was only three or four weeks left in the season so it was definitely crunch time in the season so I was definitely disappointed that I had to get this thing done. I wanted to get it out of the way now so I don't have to think about it in the future."

Known for his aggressive style of play as much as his outstanding defensive abilities in centerfield, the constant diving attempts that kept him in and out of the lineup finally took its toll on his shoulder.

"It's been bothering me," he said. "I've had this problem, the torn labrum, since high school actually.

"It was something that occurred over numerous times. It happened in Charleston when I was playing with the RiverDogs [and] it happened in Tampa.

"I tore the labrum in my left shoulder but I'm almost three months [out] now so I feel good now. It was about time that I got it fixed because I don't want to be somewhere down the road later on in life and have to get it done. I think the earlier the better."

Nearly three months out of surgery, Williams says he's feeling good at this point in time but he still doesn't have the green light to resume baseball activities just yet.

"I don't have full range of motion yet but there's no pain, no soreness," he revealed. "It's just basically kind of weak right now.

"I start swinging again in November. I'll be ready for Spring Training and hopefully feel good by then."

Perhaps the most frustrating part of the injury is his inability to do any upper-body lifting, especially considering last offseason he put on nearly 30 pounds of some much needed weight.

"It's annoying actually. I see all of my friends in here getting after it but things happen like this and I have to overcome it. I just have to get better from this.

"No upper body, just lower body lifting at this point. I start swinging and throwing next month -- I'll definitely be swinging the bat next month. I want to say November 20th."

While the shoulder was a nagging problem for some time now, Williams does feel physically different after such a strong offseason last year putting on the weight and he feels it will be beneficial for him in his rehab.

"I felt more confident with it. The power and the home runs, I don't know where that came from actually. I'm still trying to gain weight and get better but right now my main priority is getting my shoulder stronger," he concluded.
