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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Williams, 21, has a 3.67 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 54 innings with Low-A Wisconsin.
These numbers are right in line with what Williams accomplished over 89 innings with Wisconsin last year. A shoulder injury kept him sidelined until May 12, and it could be a contributing factor in him only logging five-plus innings in four of his 13 appearances. Williams still has the repertoire of a future mid-rotation starter, with the upside to be a tad better than that, but given his age, it would be nice to see him get a taste of High-A before the end of the season.
Williams (shoulder) will report to Low-A Wisconsin this week, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Williams was brought along slowly this spring after dealing with a shoulder injury, but he is ready to go after spending a few weeks pitching at the Brewers' extended spring training complex. Williams appeared in 22 games with Wisconsin last season and posted a 3.44 ERA and 89:36 K:BB ratio over 89 innings.
Williams (shoulder) is getting closer to pitching in extended spring training games.
Williams, one of the Brewers' top pitching prospects, has been brought along slowly this spring while he recovers from a shoulder injury. Things appear to be moving in the right direction for him, and he may have a chance to get into a game at some point in May.
Williams remained in extended spring training to work through a minor shoulder issue, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Williams is not expected to begin the season on the disabled list, so it appears that this issue is not very serious. He should be able to rejoin one of the lower-level members of the Brewers organization pretty early in the season and continue developing.
