Devin Williams to be backed away from high-leverage opportunities

Brewers manager Craig Counsell says the team is backing away from using Devin Williams in high-leverage situations for the time being.

Fantasy Impact

Williams got off to a late start this spring following his shoulder soreness at the end of 2020. Something hasn't seemed quite right with him through three appearances, and the Brewers are going to give him "semi-scheduled outings" for now. He entered 2021 as a fantasy asset who seemingly had value in saves-only leagues due to his ratios, but that's no longer the case.

Devin Williams allowed one run on a hit and a walk and struck out two in one inning in Wednesday's win over the Cubs. He was charged with the blown save.

Fantasy Impact

Williams entered the game with a 1-0 lead, but allowed a solo home run to Joc Pederson. Williams has allowed two runs and walked two in 1.2 innings in 2021. He's expected to remain in a setup role behind Josh Hader.

Devin Williams (shoulder) to make Cactus League debut on Saturday

Brewers RP Devin Williams (shoulder) will make his Cactus League debut on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The 26-year-old battled a shoulder injury down the stretch last year and has been eased into spring training thus far. There's no reason to worry about his availability come Opening Day as of now. Even though he might not get a single save this year, Williams is worthy of a roster spot in fantasy leagues due to his insanely productive ratios. Last year Williams put up a 0.33 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 27 innings.

Devin Williams (shoulder) pitched his first live BP in Brewers camp on Saturday. Williams threw 25 pitches in the outing.

Fantasy Impact

After the outing Williams said 'everything felt good and like he wanted.' Manager Craig Counsell previously said Williams wouldn't make his Cactus League debut before March 17th. Throwing live BP is a step in the right direction for Willams' rehab, as he inches toward making his spring debut.

Devin Williams won't pitch in a game for a couple of weeks

Brewers manager Craig Counsell says RHP Devin Williams won't appear in a Cactus League game before March 17th.

Fantasy Impact

It isn't time to panic as this is a mapped out plan by Milwaukee. Williams suffered a shoulder injury late last year but he hasn't experienced any setbacks. The reigning National League Rookie of the Year winner is one of the top setup men in baseball entering 2021. His elite ratios make him worthy of a roster spot in most fantasy leagues, despite the fact that he won't get many save opportunities.
