By on 9/26/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Colorado Rockies enter the final weekend of the 2014 season against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a record of 66-93, fourth in the National League West. The Rockies have been excellent offensively, ranked third in the Major Leagues in runs scored. But the pitching staff is ranked 30th in ERA at 4.80 and has contributed a lot to the dismal season. On the injury front, rookie catcher Jackson Williams has undergone knee surgery.

As reported by Thomas Harding of,  Williams suffered the injury on September 19 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was a supplemental first-round pick of the San Francisco Giants in 2007. He played his entire professional career up until 2014 in the Giants organization.  Williams signed a contract with the Rockies this season and played fairly well at Colorado Springs, batting .256 with four home runs and 34 RBI when the Rockies called him up.

Williams, a 28-year old catcher from Tulsa, Oklahoma, made his Major League debut this season. He's batting .214 with a home run and three RBI in 14 at bats.  In 663 Minor League games over the course of eight seasons, Jackson has a batting average of .223 with 41 home runs and 229 RBI.
