Phillies' Nick Williams: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Williams entered camp battling for a bench spot but failed to take advantage of the opportunity, slashing .087/.241/.130 in 10 Grapefruit League games before play was suspended. This comes after the outfielder struggled to a .151/.196/.245 slash line in 112 big-league plate appearances in 2019.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Not impressing in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies recalled 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: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Williams was sent back to the minors following Thursday's win over the Giants in order to free up a roster spot for Friday's starter, Jason Vargas. The outfielder is hitting just .158 in 101 at-bats on the season after going 0-for-1 on Thursday.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Slugs second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Phillies hitter gets healthy.

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.

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.

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.

September 27, 2018 12:08 PM
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.
