      Reds' Nick Williams: Clears waivers

      Nick Williams cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to the Cincinnati Reds' alternate site.Williams produced an above-average batting line in both of his first two seasons in the league but has fallen far since then. After posting a wRC+ of 12 in 67 games last season, he failed to make a big-league appearance for both the Phillies and Reds this year, and now he wasn't even claimed by another team for free. His chances of making an impact at the highest level next season appear slim.

      Reds' Nick Williams: Claimed by Reds

      Nick Williams was claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.Williams was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday after failing to live up to his potential over the past three seasons. The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors in 2020, but he'll claim a spot on the Reds' 40-man roster going forward at the team's alternate training site. While spending parts of the last three seasons in the majors, Williams slashed .254/.313/.420 with 31 home runs and 110 RBI over 903 plate appearances.

      Phillies' Nick Williams: Designated for assignment

      Nick Williams was designated for assignment for the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.Once considered a rather interesting prospect, good enough to co-headline a trade for Cole Hamels back in 2015, Williams failed to make good on his potential through parts of three big-league seasons, hitting a modest .254/.313/.420 over 903 plate appearances, good for just a 94 wRC+. That's hardly a terrible mark, and he's still just 26 years old, so there's a chance another team takes a flier on him on the waiver wire. He hasn't been a part of the Phillies' active roster this season.

      Phillies' Nick Williams: Not impressing in camp

      Nick Williams hit a poor .087/.241/.130 in 10 Grapefruit League games before play was suspended.Williams came to camp battling for a bench spot but didn't do much to help his case following a season in which he hit a miserable .151/.196/.245 in 112 big-league plate appearances. Roman Quinn, Mikie Mahtook and Kyle Garlick are among those competing with Williams for either one or two bench outfield spots, depending on how Andrew McCutchen's recovery from knee surgery lines up with the eventual resumption of play.

      Phillies' Nick Williams: Receives callup

      The Philadelphia Phillies recalled Nick Williams from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.The offseason pickup of Bryce Harper plus the midseason additions of Corey Dickerson and Jay Bruce have pushed Williams down the corner outfield depth chart in 2019, and the 25-year-old's outlook isn't expected to change much in September. Williams has predictably dominated at the Triple-A level this season with a .955 OPS in 210 plate appearances, but he struggled mightily across various stints in the big leagues, contributing a .158/.206/.257 slash line over 60 games with Philadelphia.

      Phillies' Nick Williams: Slugs second homer

      Nick Williams went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Tigers.It's only his second big-league homer of the year, with the last coming in late April. Williams has gone 2-for-16 with seven strikeouts since being recalled from Triple-A last week, so he'll likely be headed right back to the minors as soon as another Philadelphia Phillies hitter gets healthy.
