The Philadelphia Phillies announced a flurry of roster moves on Tuesday, including designating outfielder Nick Williams for assignment. (Phillies on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Williams was acquired by the Phillies in the Cole Hamels trade back in 2015, and he batted .288 with 12 home runs in 83 games in 2017. However, he never developed into an everyday contributor at the big league level and may be done in Philadelphia. Williams is a former second-round pick who doesn't turn 27 years old for another month, though, so it wouldn't be a total surprise to see another team take a chance on him.
