Mariners' Taylor Williams: Reassigned to minors camp
Williams was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Mariners on Tuesday, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.
Williams re-signed with the Mariners at the end of January after impressing with Tacoma over 23.2 innings last season, finishing with a 1.14 ERA and 23 strikeouts against seven walks. He could help the Seattle bullpen in 2023, but he would need to be added to the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Taylor Williams: Re-signs with Seattle
Williams has re-signed with the Mariners on a minor-league contract with an invitation to major-league spring training.
Williams joined the Mariners organization last July after being cut loose by the Giants, and he went on to post a 1.14 ERA with 23 strikeouts and only seven walks across 23.2 innings at Triple-A Tacoma. The 31-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in a big-league game since 2021, but that could very well change in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Taylor Williams: Minor-league deal with Mariners
The Mariners signed Williams to a minor-league contract Friday, Paul Braverman of the Tacoma Rainiers reports.
After being cut by the Giants on July 17, Williams will report to Triple-A Tacoma after striking a deal with the Mariners on Friday.

Taylor Williams: Time over in San Francisco
The Giants released Williams from his minor-league deal Sunday.
Williams had some fleeting fantasy relevance in 2020 when he picked up six saves for the Mariners, but he's struggled just to maintain a spot in a big-league bullpen in the two seasons since. He was unable to earn a look with the Giants at any point in 2022 before the organization elected to cut ties with him after he submitted a 6.81 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 45:17 K:BB in 39.2 innings with Triple-A Sacramento....

Giants' Taylor Williams: Inks MiLB deal with Giants
Williams was signed to a minor-league contract with the Giants on Sunday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. He is at their training camp as a non-roster invitee.
Williams split time between the Padres and the Marlins last season, posting a 4.63 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB across 11.2 innings. The right-hander will compete for a job in the major-league bullpen this season, but he'll likely start the year with Triple-A Sacramento.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Taylor Williams: Stays in orgnization
The Marlins outrighted Williams to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday.
Williams will finish the season as a member of the Miami organization after none of baseball's other 29 teams were willing to put in a waiver claim for the reliever when he was designated for assignment last week. Before losing his spot on the 40-man roster, Williams made six appearances out of the Miami bullpen, giving up six runs (five earned) in 6.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Taylor Williams: DFA'd by Miami
Williams was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Williams was claimed off waivers by the Marlins in early September, and he was removed from the 40-man roster after surrendering five runs on nine hits with a 3:5 K:BB over 6.1 innings. The 30-year-old could head to Triple-A Jacksonville if he passes through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Taylor Williams: Claimed by Marlins
Williams was claimed off waivers by the Marlins on Monday.
Williams was cast off the Padres' 40-man roster Friday, but he'll presumably join Miami's major-league bullpen after infielder Deven Marrero was designated for assignment Monday. The right-hander has pitched well in a limited sample in the big leagues this year, as he's recorded a 1.69 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 5.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Taylor Williams: Designated for assignment
Williams was designated for assignment by the Padres on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Williams was reinstated from the 60-day IL on Wednesday, but he didn't make an appearance following his activation. He was effective across five relief appearances in the majors this year and posted a 1.69 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 5.1 innings, but he'll be cast off the 40-man roster after right-hander Jake Arrieta (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day IL on Friday....

Padres' Taylor Williams: Reinstated from 60-day IL
Williams (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
Williams had been on the injured list since mid-April due to knee inflammation, but he joined Triple-A El Paso on a rehab assignment in early August. Across nine rehab appearances, the right-hander posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 13.1 innings. He was used in a versatile role out of the bullpen during his limited sample early in the year and will be available in some setup situations if needed.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Taylor Williams: Heading out on rehab assignment
Williams (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.
He has been sidelined since mid-April, so Williams may need a week or more to build up to the point that he can rejoin the big-league bullpen. Once he completes his rehab assignment, Williams will occupy a low-leverage relief role.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Taylor Williams: Transferred to 60-day IL
Williams (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.
Williams had been on the 10-day injured list with right knee inflammation since April 14, and he hasn't yet resumed throwing off a mound. It's not very surprising to see him land on the 60-day injured list, and he won't be eligible to return until mid-June at the earliest. However, a better idea of his return timetable could come into focus once he begins mound work. Right-hander Sam McWilliams was claimed off waivers from the Mets in a corresponding move....

Padres' Taylor Williams: Yet to throw off mound
Williams (knee) is playing catch but has not begun throwing off a mound, Bernie Wilson of the Associated Press reports.
Manager Jayce Tingler indicated that Williams recently underwent "I guess you would say like a scope in the meniscus in the knee," helping to explain the reliever's prolonged absence. Williams remains without a timeframe for a return but appears to be progressing.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Taylor Williams: Not close to return
Williams (knee) is not slated to begin a rehab stint any time soon, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Williams was placed on the 10-day injured list in mid April, so he is technically eligible to rejoin the club. However, the right-hander is still recovering and doesn't appear to be close to ramping up his activity. The organization has not provided a timeframe for Williams' return.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Taylor Williams: To IL with knee inflammation
Williams was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with right knee inflammation.
He has allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings (five appearances). Dan Altavilla (calf) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Taylor Williams: Gets spot on roster
The Padres informed Williams on Monday that he would be included on the Opening Day roster, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Due to a slew of injuries to other relievers along with the fact that he had no minor-league options remaining, Williams was able to nail down a spot in the San Diego bullpen. Williams saved six games for the Mariners in 2020 before coming over to San Diego in a deal at the trade deadline, but he's not expected to be much of a factor for the Friars in the late innings in 2021. Mark Melancon, Emilio Pagan and Drew Pomeranz look like the clear top three candidates for saves to begin the season, and Williams will probably be pushed further down the pecking order once Austin Adams (elbow) is cleared to return from the injured list....

Padres' Taylor Williams: Overcomes shoulder injury
Williams (shoulder) is listed among the Padres' available relievers for Monday's Cactus League finale versus the Rockies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Williams battled a left shoulder injury earlier this month, but he re-entered San Diego's pitching schedule over the weekend, tossing a scoreless inning in Friday's game against the Mariners. His inclusion on the pitching schedule three days later suggests he's feeling fine physically, leaving the door open for him to secure a spot on the Padres' 26-man Opening Day roster.... See More ...
