Williams (elbow) was activated to the roster Thursday at Single-A Lake Elsinore, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.

Williams is set to make his professional debut with the Padres' affiliate in the California League. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2021 before being selected by San Diego in the third round of the 2022 MLB Draft. The young right-hander struck out 45 batters over 37 innings (seven starts, two relief appearances) in his final season at Duke.
