Phillies' Nick Williams: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

With Jay Bruce (oblique) headed to the injured list, Williams will rejoin the Phillies following a 24-game stint in the minors during which he slashed .340/.402/.639 with six home runs and 14 RBI. The outfielder owns an unsightly .173/.221/.259 slash line through 50 games (86 plate appearances) with the big club this season.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.

Williams has failed to get going in sporadic at-bats this season, hitting a miserable .173/.221/.259 with a 34.9 percent strikeout rate in 86 plate appearances. His absence makes way for Roman Quinn, who returned from a groin injury in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The 25-year-old has shuffled between Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia this season, but the injury to Adam Haseley (hip) resulted in Williams being called back up to serve as outfield depth. He's struggled in his time in the majors this year, carrying a slash line of .159/.205/.232 with 24 strikeouts in 69 at-bats. Expect Scott Kingery to receive the bulk of the work in center field with Williams mostly appearing off the bench.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Williams appeared in just four games during his most recent stint with the big club, going hitless with six strikeouts in eight at-bats during that stretch. He's now hitting just .159 with a .437 OPS through 43 games with the Phillies this season, so he'll look to get back on track in the minors before likely returning to the majors later this summer. Jay Bruce, who was acquired from the Mariners over the weekend, will take Williams' spot on the active roster, serving as a left-handed bat off the bench.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and will start in left field and hit eighth Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Williams will take the place of Odubel Herrera, who was placed on administrative leave following his arrest. Through 38 games this season in the major leagues, Williams is slashing .180/.231/.262 with a homer and four RBI.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Williams to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Given his status as a lightly used reserve with minor-league options remaining, Williams ended up losing his spot on the active roster with Scott Kingery (hamstring) back from the 10-day injured list. Williams should get the chance to play on an everyday basis at Lehigh Valley after logging only 65 plate appearances through the Phillies' first 45 games.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Third start in four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will start in left field and bat ninth Sunday against the Royals, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Williams will stick in the lineup for the third time in four games, but it's worth noting that the last two of those starts have come on days in which the Phillies have had a designated hitter available. The Phillies will resume National League play Monday with a four-game series with the Brewers, so it's expected that Williams will transition back to a full-time bench role at that point. Before his recent spurt of extra playing time, Williams had made just five starts all season.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers.

Williams' first start of the season didn't come until Friday, but he remained in the lineup for four straight contests. Sean Rodriguez gets the call in left field for Wednesday's game.

April 26, 2019 04:00 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Makes first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will start for the first time this season Friday against the Marlins, batting fifth and playing left field.

Andrew McCutchen, Odubel Herrera and Bryce Harper started each of the Phillies' first 15 games in the outfield, but it's taken nine games since Herrera's hamstring injury for Williams to finally make his first start. He hasn't made much of a case for an expanded role while on the bench, going 3-for-22 at the plate.

April 17, 2019 12:12 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Still waiting on first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.

Skipper Gabe Kapler has deployed a fairly static lineup all season featuring Andrew McCutchen, Odubel Herrera and Bryce Harper as the team's regular outfield configuration, leaving few opportunities for Williams to see action. Williams still has yet to draw a start through the Phillies' first 17 contests and has received only 15 plate appearances off the bench this season.

April 3, 2019 11:36 AM
Phillies' Nick Williams: No starts through five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams isn't included in the Phillies' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Manager Gabe Kapler has rolled out the exact same starting nine and bating order in each of the Phillies' first five games, preventing Williams from seeing action as anything more than a pinch hitter or defensive replacement this season. Even with the Phillies playing a day game after a night game Wednesday, Kapler won't deviate from his usual lineup. Playing time looks like it may be hard to come by for Williams unless one of the outfielders ahead of him on the depth chart succumbs to an injury.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Decent start to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is hitting .297 with a homer and three doubles in 12 Grapefruit League games.

It's been a fairly good performance, though Williams' role this season is set to decrease regardless of what he does this spring with Andrew McCutchen and Bryce Harper unlikely to cede many at-bats in the outfield corners. Odubel Herrera's grip on the center-field job appears to be less firm, but none of Williams, Harper or McCutchen fits well there, so any at-bats lost by Herrera are unlikely to go to Williams.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Williams has been used as a pinch runner two of the last three games but hasn't been to the plate since striking out in a pinch-hit appearance Sept. 18. The 25-year-old is dealing with shoulder and hand injuries, and although the severity remains unclear, his usage as a pinch runner suggests it's not an overly serious issue. Williams is likely to finish the season with a .256/.324/.425 slash line with 17 home runs in 407 at-bats.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) is out of Thursday's starting nine against the Rockies, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Williams will be withheld from the lineup for the 10th consecutive game as Jose Bautista gets a start in right field. There remains no concrete timetable for Williams, so don't be surprised if his season has come to a close.

September 26, 2018 05:25 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Sits again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) is out of the lineup against Colorado on Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Williams will remain on the bench for the ninth straight contest while recovering from hand and shoulder injuries. There has been no word as to whether the outfielder has a chance to return to the field this season, but it's looking more and more likely that we've seen the last of Williams in 2018.

September 25, 2018 05:29 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Williams has now been on the bench for 11 of the last 12 games -- and eight straight -- as he continues to battle multiple injuries. It's unclear if Williams will be able to return before the end of the season, though it wouldn't be surprising if the Phillies opted to shut him down with the team out of playoff contention. Dylan Cozens, Roman Quinn and Odubel Herrera will man Philadelphia's outfield from left to right in this one.

September 24, 2018 04:37 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) is not in the lineup Monday against the Rockies, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Williams will sit for a seventh straight game and the 10th time in the last 11 contests as he continues to nurse shoulder and hand injuries. Aaron Altherr, Roman Quinn and Odubel Herrera will cover the outfield from left to right in his absence.

September 23, 2018 12:40 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) remains on the bench Sunday against the Braves.

Williams has now been on the bench for nine of the last 10 games while battling injuries. Aaron Altherr starts in right field in his absence.

September 22, 2018 11:00 AM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) is again out of the lineup Saturday against Atlanta.

Williams finds himself on the bench for the eighth time in nine games while battling a pair of lingering injuries. Odubel Herrera will make another start in right field, with Roman Quinn starting in center.

September 21, 2018 03:48 PM
Phillies' Nick Williams: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder, hand) remains on the bench Friday against the Braves.

Williams will sit for the seventh time in eight games. He's been battling a shoulder injury that dates back to early August and a hand issue that dates back to early September. Odubel Herrera will be the right fielder Friday, with Roman Quinn in center.
