    Player Outlook

    Jerome Williams' days as a starter seem to be in the past, as the 34-year-old was used sparingly as a reliever when with the big club last season. Unfortunately, even when used at a lesser capacity, his value was minimal. Over 11 games (17.1 innings) he allowed 11 runs, four home runs and walked four batters, giving him a 5.71 ERA and 1.62 WHIP. Williams' velocity fell for the fourth straight year, as he saw his fastball average just 89.8 mph. However, it wasn't all bad news, as Williams was effective when pitching to lefties, as they went just 3-for-29 (.120) against him. However, righties were an entirely different story. Right-handed hitters managed to go 19-for-52 (.404) with four home runs against him. Despite this one glimmer of hope for the righty, Williams will likely spend most of his 2017 season at Triple-A, if he finds a new home at all.

    Player News
    • Williams had his contract purchased by the Cardinals on Monday. Williams is 5-3 with a 4.89 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through nine starts with Triple-A Memphis. He has shown very good control over the course of the season, giving up just 2.37 BB/9, which has helped limit baserunners. However, the 34-year-old found very little success in the majors in 2015, owning a 5.80 ERA and 1.61 WHIP through 121 innings as both a starter and reliever for the Phillies.
