Pirates' Trevor Williams: Saddled with eighth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (1-8) took the loss in the first game of Friday's doubleheader as the Pirates were downed 6-5 by the Cardinals, surrendering six runs (five earned) on seven hits over 4.1 innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

It was the first time all season Williams hasn't issued a free pass, but that was about the only bright spot in an otherwise poor outing. The 28-year-old served up multiple homers for the third straight start and the fourth time in five trips to the mound, and on the year he now carries a 6.70 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, 45:18 K:BB and 2.54 HR/9 through 49.2 innings while also leading the league in losses. He'll get one more start Wednesday, at home against the Cubs.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Roughed up by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (1-7) took the loss Saturday as the Pirates were downed 7-4 by the Royals, surrendering six runs on 10 hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out four.

Two of the 10 hits left the yard, and Williams struggled in almost every frame. The right-hander threw 65 of 101 pitches for strikes as he lost his fourth straight decision. Williams will carry a 6.35 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 42:18 K:BB through 45.1 innings into his next outing Thursday, at home against the Cardinals.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Can't keep ball in yard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (1-6) took the loss Saturday as the Pirates were downed 6-2 by the Reds, coughing up five runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks. He struck out six.

It's the second time this season the right-hander has served up three homers in a game, and his HR/9 now stands at a ghastly 2.23. Williams has struck out batters at a career-high 21.0 percent clip in 2020, but that's about the only silver lining to his performance so far. He'll carry a 5.80 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 40.1 innings into his next outing Saturday in Kansas City.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Struggles again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams gave up five runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks over four innings versus the Brewers on Monday. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

Williams' struggles were not his alone, as the Pirates made two errors that led to runs in the second and fourth innings. The 28-year-old didn't help his own cause much, allowing eight or more baseunners for the fourth straight start. Williams has a 5.50 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 32:12 K:BB through 34.1 innings this season. He'll look for better control Saturday versus the Reds.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Tagged for eight runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (1-5) took the loss Wednesday against the White Sox after giving up eight runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks over six innings.

The right-hander entered Wednesday with three homers allowed through his first five starts of the season, but Chicago doubled up that total. Williams has a 5.34 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 26:10 K:BB through 30.1 innings, and he'll look to get back on track Monday at Milwaukee.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Early exit in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (1-4) took the loss Thursday as the Pirates were downed 2-0 by Cleveland, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out five.

It was a solid, if inefficient, performance -- Williams needed 90 pitches (52 strikes) to record 12 outs -- but with Shane Bieber on the mound for the opposition, he had no margin for error. Despite his poor record, Williams has a respectable 3.70 ERA and 23:8 K:BB through 24.1 innings, and he'll look for more support from his offense in his next outing Wednesday, on the road against the White Sox.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will be making his fifth start of the season for the Pirates. Through four turns, Williams is 1-3 with a 3.98 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Next start against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is slated to start against the Indians on Thursday, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

He's increased his strikeout rate year-over-year from 7.0 K/9 to 8.0 K/9, but his xFIP of 4.99 shows he's outperformed his current 3.98 ERA. Williams' four-seam fastball velocity has dipped slightly to 91.8 mph, but the cerebral righty is throwing breaking pitches nearly 50 percent of the time, including a curve ball (5.2 percent) that's added a new wrinkle to his repertoire. Thursday will mark just his second start at PNC Park in five outings, where he holds a career 3.79 ERA (as compared to a 4.68 ERA on the road).

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Earns first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (1-3) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Thursday against the Reds.

The Pirates jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first two innings of the contest, allowing Williams to cruise to his first win of the season. The major damage against him came on a two-run home run by Nick Senzel in the fourth inning. Williams now maintains a 3.98 ERA across 20.1 innings this season, and he's worked a combined 12.2 frames across his last two starts while allowing four earned runs. He'll look to keep his success going in his next outing, currently projected to come Tuesday against Cleveland.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Locked in for Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is slated to start Thursday's game against the Reds.

Williams will be making his first start in more than a week after he was initially slated to start Monday against the Cardinals before the entire three-game series was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak among St. Louis players and staff. The right-hander has made three turns through the rotation this season, going 0-3 with a 3.52 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB across 15.1 innings.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Remainder of series postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams won't start until at least Thursday since the Pirates' upcoming series against the Cardinals was postponed due to COVID-19-related concerns, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

Williams was slated to take the mound for the series opener against St. Louis, but the Cardinals' season will remain on hold amid their COVID-19 outbreak. It's unclear what the Pirates' rotation will look like once the team returns to action, but Williams could be on track to start early in the team's upcoming series against the Reds.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Game versus Cards postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams won't start Monday as the Cardinals' COVID-19 outbreak will cause another postponement, Jeff Passan of reports.

St. Louis hasn't played a game in over a week, which will extend to Monday's series opener. The final two games of the series Tuesday and Wednesday remain on the schedule for now, but that could change in the coming days.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Holds Twins in check
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (0-3) allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out five across seven innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Twins.

Williams held one of the better lineups around the league in check, with the only extra-base hit he allowed coming off the bat of Luis Arraez in the seventh inning. Prior to that, he had allowed just one Twin into scoring position and had retired 11 straight batters. Williams now has a 3.52 ERA across 15.1 innings this season, racking up a 14:5 K:BB. He'll look to duplicate this effectiveness in his next start, currently scheduled early next week at St. Louis.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Takes loss against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (0-2) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Cubs. He gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks while fanning six across 4.2 innings.

Williams retired the first five batters he faced, but things went downhill from the third inning onward. It seems as if Williams' struggles during the 2019 season -- where he pitched to the tune of a 5.38 ERA -- remain in place for 2020 after two sub-par performances. His next start should come at home against the Twins on Aug. 5.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Dealt first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (0-1) took the loss Saturday against the Cardinals after allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over 3.2 innings. He had three strikeouts.

The right-hander ran into trouble during the fourth inning, surrendering two runs on four hits and a wild pitch, and he was pulled rather than being allowed to face Kolton Wong a third time. Williams was a strong rotation piece in 2018 with a 3.11 ERA, but he struggled last season with a 5.38 ERA and isn't off to a great start in 2020. He lines up for a tough matchup against the Cubs on the road Friday.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Starter for second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Derek Shelton said Sunday that Williams will start the Pirates' second game of the season, Adam Berry of reports.

Williams struggled during spring training, but he was able to impress during summer camp and will play a prominent role in Pittsburgh's rotation to begin the season. The right-hander struggled with a 5.38 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 145.2 innings last season, although he fared considerably better with current starting catcher Jacob Stallings behind the plate.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Hopeful despite poor spring numbers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams, who enters 2020 as the Pirates' No. 3 starter, struggled throughout spring training with a 9.00 ERA in nine innings.

He gave up 12 hits and six walks in nine frames, though the gusty Florida winds contributed to his ineffectiveness. On the bright side, Williams permitted only one homer. In 2019, the righty saw his home run rate jump to 1.64 HR/9 from 0.51 HR/9 in 2017 and 1.17 HR/9 in 2018. Last year, the righty registered an 8.87 ERA in 10 starts with the recently released Elias Diaz behind the plate. With Francisco Cervelli and current starter Jacob Stallings catching, his earned-run average dropped to 3.67 (in 16 starts). Williams makes for an interesting endgame fantasy pick, especially if he can rebound anywhere close to the pitcher he was before 2019, when he compiled a 3.56 ERA in his first two full major-league campaigns.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Poor results Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams allowed four runs on four hits and two walks in one-plus innings Friday against Baltimore. He struck out two batters.

He pitched better than his line suggests but was squeezed by the home plate ump and poorly supported by his fielders. Williams left the game in the top of the second inning after throwing 46 pitches. The righty has surrendered eight runs in three spring innings and is looking to rebound from a poor 2019 showing, when he compiled a 5.38 ERA and 1.41 WHIP.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Hits early road bump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams gave up four earned runs on four hits and a walk in two innings Sunday against the Phillies. He hit one batter, threw one wild pitch and finished with zero strikeouts.

Williams certainly didn't get off to a great Grapefruit League start, but he'll get plenty more chances as the team's third starter. The righty compiled an amazing second half in 2018 -- 1.29 ERA in 76.2 innings -- but he pitched closer to his expected numbers in 2019. His 5.38 ERA last summer nearly mirrored his xFIP of 5.25.
