Angels' Jerome Williams to start Saturday

Jerome WilliamsAngels right-hander Jerome Williams is expected to start Saturday's game against the Yankees in New York, his first action since June 18 when he was taken to the hospital with what was reportedly a combination of an asthma and anxiety attack, according to the Orange County Register.

Williams made two rehab starts at Triple-A Salt Lake, giving up five earned runs in two innings in his first start and two in six innings in his second. Overall this season, he's 6-5 with a 4.46 ERA.

Williams left his June 18 start against the Giants after just 3 1/3 innings and was taken to a Southern California hospital, where he spent the night. Williams said he hadn't had an asthma attack since he was very young, nor had he ever had an anxiety attack before.
