The Mami Marlins brought their bats to the ball park Thursday night. Miami hitters managed to chase Jerome Williams after just 1.2 innings of work in which Williams allowed 8 earned runs. Those 8 earned runs were the product of 8 hits and 4 walks and 2 home runs. Williams never looked good Thursday and will look to rebound against the Mets in his next outing.
After consecutive quality starts Williams has once again turned in an ugly performance. While Williams may have had a little bit of success lately, his down side can be match-up ruining for fantasy owners. Unless you have no other options, continue to place your trust elsewhere.
Success seems to be contagious in Philadelphia as one of the hottest teams since the All Star Break continues to get contributions from everyone. Sunday saw Jerome Williams record his finest start of the season going 7 innings of 1 run baseball. In addition, Williams managed to allow just 5 base-runners including no walks, something he has struggled with all season.
Williams remains a last resort option in NL Only leagues, but this start was certainly encouraging. Keep an eye on his next start but for now, consider Sunday's win against the Padres as an exception and not an expectation.
Facing a possible sweep, the Phillies turned the ball over to Jerome Williams who promptly surrendered 4 runs in the 1st on his way to giving up 5 over 6 innings of work.
Williams actually pitched better then the stat line would suggest. He only gave up 1 run over his last 5 innings and did manage to go through 6 innings of work but that isn't enough to warrant much fantasy attention.
Jerome Williams' latest outing was less then successful. The Giants managed to knock Williams around for 4 runs in 4.1 innings on 9 hits. Of the 9 hits allowed, 2 left the park.
Williams has completed 6 innings just once since May 1. At this point, if the ERA and WHIP haven't scared you off, the fact that Williams is incapable of qualifying for a quality start and has earned just 1 win should be enough to keep you away.
Once again Jerome Williams was unable to get through 6 innings, lasting just 5 innings and surrendering 4 runs in the process to a relatively weak hitting Colorado Rockies offense.
This marked the 6th time in Williams' last 7 starts that he failed to get through 6 innings. Williams continues to be just ineffective enough not to be considered in any fantasy formats. With two months now complete, it is hard to see things improving too much for Williams at this point.
