Williams went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers. The 24-year-old is now up to 11 homers through 74 big-league games, but he also struck out three times in this one, marking his fifth straight start with multiple strikeouts. Williams will have a tough time maintaining a high average with all those strikeouts, but his spot in the heart of the batting order is conducive to compiling counting stats.
Williams is out of the lineup against the Dodgers on Wednesday. Williams will get a breather for the first time this month following 21 straight starts. During that span, the outfielder's slashed .287/.315/.425 with two home runs and 18 RBI. In his place, Aaron Altherr slides over to right while Rhys Hoskins draws the assignment in left.
Williams went 4-for-5 with a three-run homer and two runs Friday against the Nationals. Williams blasted his 10th homer of the season to give the Phillies a 3-0 lead in the first inning of the game they'd go on to lose. Since joining the lineup just over two months ago, he's been a major boost to the lineups of fantasy managers, as he's slashing .285/.341/.498.
Williams went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's rain-abbreviated loss to the Mets. He made the most of his limited opportunities, bopping his first homer in 10 games and continuing to drive in runs aplenty; Williams has racked up four extra-base hits and 10 RBI over the course of his current five-game hitting streak. The rookie outfielder's been an underrated down-the-stretch fantasy asset.
Williams went 2-for-5 with a three-run double and a run scored in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Mets. He finished off the scoring in a game the Phillies appeared to have sewn up neatly even before Williams struck the final blow with his fourth-inning two-bagger. The rookie outfielder, who turns 24 on Friday, has looked good with the bat in his first taste of the majors; while his .274 average isn't terribly impressive and he could stand to lower his strikeout rate, Williams boasts an OPS north of .800 as well as 38 RBI in just 59 games. Crucially, the lefty-swinging Texan has more than held his own against southpaws, which bodes well for him holding onto an everyday role for the long haul.
