  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Picks up win

    Williams (2-0) earned the win Saturday against the Marlins after throwing a scoreless inning with two strikeouts.

    Williams was tasked with preserving a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the eighth and accomplished his task easily, sandwiching a flyout between a pair of strikeouts. The Brewers then scored the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning on a bases-loaded walk by Jace Peterson. The outing lowered Williams' season ERA to 5.25 while raising his strikeout rate to 36.8 percent.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Steps in for Hader

    Williams closed out the Reds on Tuesday to earn his second save of the season. He struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning.

    Manager Craig Counsell revealed after the game that Josh Hader was unavailable due to mid-back spasms. Fortunately for the Brewers, they have another one of the best relievers in baseball in Williams, who can step in for saves while Hader is ailing, though it doesn't sound like the lefty will be out more than a few additional days as a result of this particular issue.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Registers first save

    Williams tossed a scoreless ninth earning to earn his first save of the season during Thursday's 3-2 win over the Pirates. He struck out three and didn't allow a baserunner.

    Williams got his first save opportunity of the season with Josh Hader, who pitched five times over the last seven days, unavailable for Thursday's contest. The Brewers scored two runs in the top of the ninth to take a 3-2 lead, and Williams shut the door quickly by striking out the side in the bottom half of the inning. The 27-year-old righty surrendered four runs across his first four outings of the year, but he's settled in as Milwaukee's setup man with six straight scoreless outings.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Registers first win

    Williams (1-0) picked up the win in a 1-0 victory over the Phillies on Sunday, walking one with one strikeout in one inning.

    Williams pitched the eighth inning of a 0-0 tie and fell in line for the victory when Milwaukee took the lead in the top of the ninth. The 27-year-old now has seven holds and a win in eight appearances this season -- all Milwaukee wins -- despite a 5.68 ERA due to a pair of poor outings.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Escapes self-inflicted jam

    Williams tossed a scoreless eighth inning and picked up his second hold of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Orioles.

    Williams did not make things easy on himself, allowing the first three batters he faced to reach base, but he punched out the next three hitters that came to the plate and maintained the one-run lead the Brewers held when he entered the contest. Williams has tossed just two innings thus far, but five of the six outs he has recorded have come via strikeout.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Throws new cutter

    Williams threw a new cutter about eight times, all of which were to left-handed hitters, during Friday's spring training game, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Williams' changeup remained extremely effective with .161 BA, .232 SLG and .211 wOBA in 2021. With above-average horizontal and vertical movement, it would benefit Williams to add a pitch that breaks towards lefties. Williams hopes to use the cutter against lefties to "get them off of the other side of the plate a little bit." Although Williams isn't sure how effective the cutter will be, it's something to monitor during the season.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Working on new pitch

    Williams is working on a slider or cutter this spring, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Williams threw a slider in the minors but hasn't used it much in the majors. His elite changeup is the pitch that carries his profile, but an additional secondary could give him an unexpected additional weapon and could make his changeup even better if hitters aren't able to sit on it quite as much.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Plans to be ready for spring

    Williams said Wednesday in an interview with Will Sammon of The Athletic that he expects to be fully healthy for the start of spring training after undergoing right hand surgery in early October.

    Williams' interview marked the first time he spoke to the media since he fractured his hand Sept. 26 after punching a wall while celebrating the Brewers' division title. The untimely incident kept Williams from pitching in the second straight postseason, after he was sidelined late in 2020 due to a shoulder injury. The shoulder issue lingered into this past spring and had a hand in Williams' early-season struggles, but before fracturing his hand, the right-handed setup man looked to have rediscovered the form that made him the National League's Rookie of the Year. Over his final 25.2 innings, Williams posted a 1.40 ERA and 41 strikeouts, offering hope that he'll be able to enter 2022 with some confidence, provided he continues to progress well in his recovery from hand surgery. Williams resumed throwing and lifting weights just before Thanksgiving, and he should gradually ramp up the intensity of his workouts as spring training approaches.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Undergoes hand surgery

    Williams underwent successful surgery to repair his fractured right hand over the weekend, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    President of baseball operations David Stearns previously said Williams may be healthy in time for the World Series if the Brewers make it that far, and that timeline apparently remains unchanged. The 27-year-old posted a 2.50 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 87:28 K:BB over 54 innings with three saves and 23 holds while operating as the setup man for closer Josh Hader, so it's a significant blow for Milwaukee in the playoffs. Game 1 of the World Series is Oct. 26, so the right-hander has exactly three weeks to get healthy and build up his arm. He'll head to the spring training facility in Arizona to go through his rehab work.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Fractures hand, needs surgery

    The Brewers will place Wililams on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a fractured right hand, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Williams had been dealing with a calf injury recently, but he'll require surgery on his right hand after he punched a wall Sunday while the Brewers were celebrating their division title. President of baseball operations David Stearns said Wednesday that the right-hander could return for the World Series if the Brewers advance that far, but he's expected to miss significant time. He had recorded three saves and eight holds with a 1.74 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 20.2 innings since the All-Star break, but Brad Boxberger and Brent Suter will likely handle more setup duties late in the regular season and during the postseason.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Calf feeling better

    Williams' calf is feeling better, but it's not yet clear when he'll return to action, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    A calf issue has kept Williams off the mound since Saturday. He played catch prior to Friday's game against the Mets, but the Brewers have yet to officially say that he's ready for game action.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Managing calf injury

    Williams has been unavailable recently due to a calf injury, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Williams hasn't pitched since Sept. 18, and manager Craig Counsell revealed after Thursday's loss to the Cardinals that the right-hander recently sustained a calf injury while running in the outfield. The team is hopeful that the 27-year-old will be able to avoid a trip to the injured list, but it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Picks up eighth win

    Williams fired a scoreless eighth inning and picked up his eighth win of the season Saturday against the Cubs.

    Williams issued his fifth walk in five appearances Saturday, but he also struck out the side for the ninth time this season and wound up with the win when Manny Pina hit a go-ahead homer in the home half of the eighth. Williams was tagged for four earned runs by the Giants in his first September outing, but those are the only runs he has allowed in 26 appearances since June 23.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Snags third save

    Williams tossed a scoreless 10th inning and picked up his third save of the season in Wednesday's victory over the Cardinals.

    Closer Josh Hader pitched the bottom of the ninth inning after the Brewers tied the game in the top of the frame, so Williams got a shot to close it out after the offense put up three runs in the 10th inning. Although he allowed the courtesy runner to score, that was the extent of the damage. Williams has allowed just one earned run since June 5, and since that stretch began he has recorded five wins, three saves, a 0.38 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP while posting a 38:9 K:BB over 24 innings.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Notches second save

    Williams gave up three hits and struck out two in a scoreless seventh inning Tuesday to record his second save of the season in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cubs.

    The right-hander loaded the bases on three singles, but Williams rebounded to fan Patrick Wisdom and Greg Deichmann to end the matinee. Both of Williams' saves have come in his last three appearances as he extended his scoreless streak to 12 innings and 13 games, and he should remain the Brewers' top closing option while Josh Hader (COVID-19) is sidelined.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Earns first big-league save

    Williams struck out two and walked one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

    The 26-year-old successfully protected a two-run lead to earn his first major-league save. Williams has stepped into the closing role temporarily while Josh Hader is on the COVID-19 injured list. In his last 11 outings, Williams has pitched 10 scoreless innings with just four hits and five walks allowed while striking out 16. He owns a 2.58 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 17 holds through 38.1 innings overall while primarily serving as the setup man for Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Closing opportunity opens up

    Williams is likely to fill in as Milwaukee's closer after Josh Hader (illness) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

    Hader is the fourth reliever, and fifth player overall, on the COVID IL for the Brewers, and Williams should now have the chance to work as the closer for a brief period. The right-hander has yet to record a save in 75 big-league appearances, but he's been a key bullpen piece for manager Craig Counsell over the past two years as a setup man. Williams struggled over the first few weeks of the season, but over his past 33 outings he has a 1.82 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 48:15 K:BB in 29.2 innings.
