Brewers' Devin Williams: Scoreless streak continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams tossed a scoreless inning of relief and struck out two batters in the Brewers' victory over the Cardinals in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Williams allowed four runners to cross the plate -- just one of those runs were earned -- over his first four outings of the season, but he has been otherwordly since, giving up zero runs of any sort over his last 15 trips to the mound while striking out 35 batters in 16.2 innings (18.9 K/9) and allowing just eight runners to even reach base (0.48 WHIP). Williams' fantasy value at present is somewhat limited by his lack of saves, but should the Brewers move Josh Hader at any point and install Williams as the closer, few relievers would be as or more desirable in fantasy leagues.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Another dominant outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams struck out four batters over two scoreless innings in Saturday's loss to Cleveland.

Only a catcher's interference prevented Williams from being perfect Saturday, as he was otherwise dominant, which is becoming the norm for him. Williams' changeup has taken him to new heights, and over his last eight appearances -- all hitless -- he has struck out a whopping 20 batters and has walked just two in 9.1 innings.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Collects win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (3-1) allowed just one walk over 1.2 innings and struck out four to earn the win versus the Pirates on Monday.

Williams got the last two outs of the seventh inning and added a clean eighth to keep the game tied at five. The Brewers took the lead in the bottom of the eighth to make him the pitcher of record, and Josh Hader was able to lock down the save. Williams has been wonderful this season, with a 0.64 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 29 strikeouts across 14 innings. He's also added five holds, and with David Phelps no longer on the roster, he's now the clear-cut setup man in Milwaukee.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Dominating in August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Through six appearances in August, Williams has struck out 15 while giving up an unearned run on two hits and three walks over 6.1 innings.

Josh Hader has been dominant as usual at the back end of the Milwaukee bullpen and is locked in as the team's closer, but Williams has risen from relative obscurity to potentially emerge as the next man up for save chances. The key to Williams' success has been his mid-80s changeup, which ranks tops among all pitchers in horizontal movement and fourth in vertical movement, as measured by Statcast.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Getting the job done
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams tossed a scoreless seventh inning in Sunday's victory over the Reds.

Williams earned a spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster this season for the first time, and he has found himself working in key situations early on, with each of his five appearances coming when the Brewers have either been tied or ahead on the scoreboard. He has proven up to the task, allowing just one earned run (1.69 ERA) while punching out 10 batters over 5.1 innings of relief.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Breaks camp with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will open the season on the Brewers' 30-man roster.

Williams held his own in 13 games out of the Brewers' bullpen last season, and he showed enough this spring and summer to break camp with the big club for the first time. Williams will not open in a prominent role, but he could be part of the group of relievers manager Craig Counsell turns to when trying to hold a lead in the middle innings.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Could make 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams has impressed in camp and could make the Opening Day bullpen, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Williams and Bobby Wahl were mentioned by manager Craig Counsell as two relievers who have impressed in the battle for the team's final bullpen spots. Williams logged a 3.95 ERA and 14:6 K:BB in 13.2 innings out of the big-league bullpen in 2019.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Competing for relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams tossed a scoreless inning of relief in Saturday's spring game against the Cubs.

Williams kept the opponent off the scoreboard Saturday after allowing three earned runs over his first two appearances of the exhibition season. He pitched 13.2 innings with the big club last season and saw mixed success, striking out 14 batters but posting a 1.76 WHIP. With a few more quality outings over the remainder of the spring, he will have a chance to break camp with the Brewers for the first time.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Back with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was recalled from Double-A Biloxi on Tuesday.

Williams threw nine innings for the Brewers in August, posting a respectable 4.00 ERA but a poor 2.11 WHIP. He'll be a lower-leverage bullpen option down the stretch.

August 31, 2019 12:56 PM
Brewers' Devin Williams: Sent packing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday.

In what was his first big-league stint, Williams made eight appearances and compiled a 4.00 ERA, 2.11 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB across nine innings. Ben Gamel was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move, while Williams should be back up sometime in September when rosters expand.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Makes big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams threw 1.2 innings in his big-league debut Wednesday and allowed two runs -- neither earned -- on three hits while posting a 3:1 K:BB.

Williams had some trouble keeping runners off the bases, which resulted in a couple runs crossing the plate for the Pirates. However, due to an error, neither was charged to his stat line. Williams showed some good stuff in his first appearance at the top level, averaging 96 mph with his fastball and mixing in a couple quality offspeed pitches. He will get more opportunities with the big club, but with the Brewers acquiring several pitchers at the trade deadline, he is the most likely player to be sent down if a roster spot is needed for another pitcher.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Earns big-league promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Monday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Williams earned his first promotion to the majors by posting a combined 2.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 82:30 K:BB in 57 innings between San Antonio and Double-A Biloxi. He'll replace Aaron Wilkerson, who was sent to Triple-A on Monday, on the roster and in the bullpen.

July 26, 2019 09:08 PM
Brewers' Devin Williams: Moves up to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was promoted to Triple-A San Antonio on Friday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After posting an ugly 5.82 ERA over 34 innings with High-A Carolina a season ago, Williams has shown significant improvement in 2019, owning a 2.36 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with a 76:29 K:BB over 53.1 frames, resulting in a promotion to the next level.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (elbow) threw 2.1 innings in a game with High-A Carolina on Thursday in his first appearance since 2016.

Williams missed the entirety of the 2017 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he has recovered from the procedure and is again ready for game action. Williams was once one of the Brewers' top pitching prospects, so he could get back on track to the big leagues if he finds success the rest of this year.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Will report to High-A in near future
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (elbow) will make one more start at extended spring training before heading to High-A Carolina, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Williams won't be utilized as a full-fledged starter upon his arrival, and will be limited to around three innings or 45 pitches per outing. The 23-year-old has been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery in March 2017, and will continue working to rebuild his arm strength with the Mudcats.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Eying second half return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (elbow) is hoping to join a full-season minor-league affiliate sometime during the second half of the season, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Williams is currently at the team's spring training facility rehabbing from Tommy John surgery that he underwent in March of 2017. He's currently able to throw 15-20 pitches with no restrictions and figures to report to a minor-league affiliate once his arm strength is fully built back up.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Throws off flat mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (elbow) has been able to throw off a flattened mound in recent days, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Williams is coming off Tommy John surgery that he underwent in late March of 2017 and it's expected that he will be able to return to the field in game shape around the beginning of May. A clearer picture of his timetable will come into focus once he's able to progress to throwing off a regulation mound.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Will require Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will require Tommy John surgery on his injured elbow and will miss the entire 2017 season, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.

Williams underwent multiple examinations after injuring his elbow earlier in March, and the decision was ultimately made to send him under the knife. Williams is one of the Brewers' top pitching prospects, but he will need at least a year to recover from his procedure, so he will now be forced to turn his attention to 2018.

March 11, 2017 07:48 PM
Brewers' Devin Williams: Heading for second opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is heading for a second opinion on his elbow after he underwent an MRI earlier in the week, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The Brewers wouldn't say what the results of the first MRI showed, and the fact that Williams is headed for a second opinion suggests the first batch of tests didn't come back clean. His status will be updated when more information is made available.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Gets right elbow examined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams underwent tests on his right elbow Wednesday after experiencing some pain, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

General manager David Stearns said he "has no idea whether this is nothing at all, or something more than that," which certainly doesn't instill much confidence in any of Williams' dynasty league owners. The pitching prospect was examined by Brewers head physician William Raasch and could head in for an MRI if Raasch recommends it. For now, consider the right-hander day-to-day until a more firm diagnosis comes forth.
