Nationals' Austen Williams: Moved to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals transferred Williams (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

The right-hander had already been ruled out for the season while on the mend from a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, so the transaction is merely a procedural one. Washington called up reliever Aaron Barrett from Double-A Harrisburg in a corresponding move.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Preparing for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) will return to Florida next week to resume his throwing program and is preparing for his return in 2020, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Williams has been on the shelf since mid-April with a sprained right AC joint and it appears he'll look toward next season rather than rejoining the Nationals for the stretch run. The 26-year-old started pitching in the Gulf Coast League in late July and made five appearances with Double-A Harrisburg, but he's taken a break over the last couple weeks before meeting with doctors Tuesday in Washington. Williams is fully recovered from the shoulder injury but is still working to find the timing in his mechanics, prompting the decision to avoid rushing back in September.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Meeting with doctors in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) is set to meet with team doctors in Washington on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Williams has been sidelined since April 19 due to a sprained right AC joint, and he doesn't appear all that close to returning. It's unclear if he'll pitch again this season.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Begins throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) is beginning a throwing program, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

He was throwing back in May but must have been shut down briefly at some point in the last month. Williams will provide organizational bullpen depth once healthy.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Shoulder healing well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Martinez said Williams (shoulder) threw 40 pitches at extended spring training earlier in the week, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Martinez also noted that Williams is recovering well from the sprained AC joint that forced him onto the injured list in mid-April. The 26-year-old Williams will continue to work his way back at extended spring training before ultimately being cleared to rejoin the big-league bullpen.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained right AC joint Friday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

It's unclear how much time Williams is expected to miss. His ERA sits at 162.00 after he allowed six runs over two appearances while recording just one out. Austin Adams was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was recalled from Triple-A Fresno prior to Saturday's game against the Pirates, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The Nationals needed a fresh arm for the bullpen, and Williams will get the opportunity, in large part due to his impressive spring training. He should operate in low-leverage spots. Justin Miller (back) hit the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Nationals' Austen Williams: Loses out in bullpen battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

WIlliams was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Williams threw 7.2 scoreless innings this spring, allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out seven batters. That kept him in the bullpen battle until the very end, but he'll now have to wait for his chance at the Triple-A level.

Nationals' Austen Williams: In running for final bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is competing with Wander Suero for the last spot in the Nationals' bullpen, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Williams has been lights-out this spring, giving up only two hits over 7.2 scoreless innings with a 7:0 K:BB to keep him in the hunt for a big-league job. There's also a scenario in which the club decides to keep both him and Suero on the Opening Day roster rather than replacing Howie Kendrick (hamstring) with another position player. If he does head north with the team, Williams would work in low-leverage situations.
