Week Four Medical Report: Bad News For Everett Williams

It's not been a good week for some of baseball's better prospects. Twins' righthander David Bromberg was hit by a comebacker that broke his forearm; Giants outfielder Thomas Neal has a sore shoulder, and Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton and catcher Travis D'Arnaud are out with the effects of a concussion.

But the worst news came for Padres outfielder Everett Williams. Williams banged his knee in an outfield collision with fellow Padres prospect Donavan Tate. At the time, it was thought that Williams would be back in just a week or two, but further tests have found that Williams has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season. Tate isn't expected back on the field before June 1.
