Having pitched 7.0 scoreless innings yielding only 2 hits and no walks while striking out 8, Fabian Williamson has run away with SoxProspects.com Pitcher of the Week honors for May 18 - 24. The 20-year-old lefthander limited South Atlantic League hitters to a microscopic .167 OPSA over his 2 appearances for Greenville. He is now 3-1 with a 2.55 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 35.2 innings for the Drive and has earned his way into the starting rotation. Williamson was originally drafted in the 22nd round by Seattle in 2006 and was acquired by the Red Sox this January for relief pitcher David Aardsma. He is currently the 41st ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
