Williams (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Williams has been able to throw off flat ground since early in the week, but he's now close to resuming mound work as he continues to make good progress in his recovery. The right-hander has been sidelined due to elbow discomfort since July 17, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action.
Williams (elbow) said Tuesday that he's hopeful his stay on the injured list will end after the minimum 10 days, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Williams played catch Tuesday for the first time since landing on the IL with right elbow discomfort last Friday. While nothing is set in stone, the right-hander appears to be on track for a short stay on the injured list, even if it ends up being slightly longer than the 10 days. If he is indeed ready to be activated when first eligible, the 26-year-old would return to the Brewers' bullpen Saturday against the White Sox.
Williams (elbow) played catch Tuesday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. Williams hit the injured list Friday with right elbow discomfort. While it's never good to see a pitcher dealing with an elbow injury, the fact that he's throwing again just a few days later certainly seems to be a positive sign. However, the Brewers have yet to specify exactly when they expect him to return.
Williams was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow discomfort Saturday. Williams showed no signs of injury late in the first half, allowing just a single earned run in his last 15 appearances. Per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, president of baseball operations David Stearns said that a Saturday MRI revealed no structural damage, and that the right-hander is not expected to require a lengthy absence. The Brewers can backdate the transaction by three days, leaving Williams eligible to return next Saturday, but it's not yet clear if he'll be in contention to do so.
Williams (6-1) struck out two in a perfect inning, earning the win in Thursday's victory over Cincinnati.

He's added 15 holds and three blown saves in 36 appearances.
