Williams was optioned to San Diego's alternate training site Monday. Williams has appeared in 15 games this season, 14 of which were with the Mariners, accruing a 6.14 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with a 20:7 K:BB over 14.2 innings of relief work. Joey Lucchesi was recalled in a corresponding move.
Williams was recalled from the alternate training site Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The 29-year-old was optioned to the alternate site Thursday, but he'll make a quick return to the team with Javy Guerra (personal) heading to the injured list. Williams has a 6.14 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 20:7 K:BB over 14.2 innings this season, though he's made only one appearance since being acquired by the Friars at the trade deadline.
Williams was optioned to the Padres' alternate training site Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Williams went from being the Mariners closer to a roster casualty with his new team after the trade deadline. He wasn't close to the saves mix in San Diego anyway, but now he can be cut loose in all redraft leagues.
Williams tossed one inning Tuesday against Colorado, allowing a run on two hits while striking out one. Williams' first appearance since joining San Diego came in the sixth inning of a game that the Padres led by seven runs. The right-hander yielded a run on a double and a single while throwing 22 pitches (14 strikes). Williams notched six saves while serving as Seattle's primary closer prior to the trade that moved him down the coast, but he appears to be slated for a low-leverage bullpen role with the Padres.
Williams was recalled from the Padres' alternate training site Sunday. It's not often you see a pitcher go from closing for one team to serving as minor-league depth with another, but that's what happened with Williams. He took over as the Mariners' primary closer early on this season, racking up six saves before he was dealt Monday, but he was optioned by the Padres after the transaction was completed. He will have to work his way back up the ladder in San Diego.
