Drafted in the 2nd round (59th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2019 (signed for $925,000)
After a solid season at Northern Iowa Area CC in 2018, Williamson fell to the Brewers in the 36th round because no team wanted to match his asking price. So instead of signing, Williamson moved on to Texas Christian, where he immediately stepped into the Horned Frogs’ weekend rotation. There’s a lot to like with Williamson, who pitches from an athletic, 6-foot-5 frame. He’s also shown steady improvement over the past two years, and he has a fluid delivery with a clean arm path. The one thing holding Williamson back is a lack of a clear plus pitch, although his 90-92 mph fastball will touch 94-95 mph at times and has the potential to be an above-average offering. He has both a curveball and a slider that are two distinct pitches, but both are fringe-average to average at best. He also has a fringe-average changeup. Williamson is relatively durable and has some projection remaining. As a reasonably productive lefthanded starter at a major college program, Williamson will likely be picked somewhere between the late second and early fourth round.
