Miami uses 15th-round pick on outfielder Williams

The Marlins used their 15th-round selection on outfielder Miles Williams, making the Cal State, Northridge product the 442nd overall pick of the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft.

Miami sees power potential in Williams, who led the Matadors and tied for third in the Big West Conference with eight home runs as a junior. He accomplished the feat in only 93 at-bats due to a foot injury that sidelined him for 32 games.

Williams, who hit six home runs in 182 at-bats as a sophomore, is a .250 career hitter and has struck out 122 times in 340 career at-bats.

He was the fourth outfielder selected by Miami in this year's Draft.
