Mac Williamson Hits 511-foot Shot During Three Homer Night for River Cats


Once again, Mac Williamson is doing crazy things for the Sacramento River Cats.

The 28-year-old outfielder hit three home runs on Monday night to power the River Cats to a 12-6 win over the Reno Aces.

And one of those three homer traveled an eye-popping 511 feet.

Williamson is now up to nine home runs 23 games with Sacramento this season, and has pushed his OPS to a staggering 1.215.

Meanwhile, Mike Gerber is 1-for-15 with nine strikeouts since he was promoted to the big league club earlier this week.

Williamson wasn't the only former Giant to have a big night in Sacramento. First baseman Austin Slater hit two homers himself and is up to five on the season.

While Williamson is crushing the ball, and the Giants could surely use him, he's not on the 40-man roster right now. So in order for Farhan Zaidi to get him on the 25-man roster, he'd have the cut another player.

"With a guy like Mac being out of options, we have to make sure when we pull the trigger on that, we have a long period where we can take a look at him," Zaidi said on KNBR 680 on Thursday. "That's what's fair to him and as an organization, we don't want to risk exposing him to waivers. We're gonna have to figure out the right time to do that. He's certainly worked his way back into the picture."
