by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Phillies send failed SP Jerome Williams to bullpen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2015) Four months of mostly poor performances are finally enough for the Phillies to send Jerome Williams from the rotation to the bullpen.

Williams could not maintain the momentum gained from three strong starts in early August. He allowed 12 runs on 13 hits over his last seven innings to raise his ERA to an awful 6.13.


Phillies SP Jerome Williams lets lead slip away in loss Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) Phillies starter Jerome Williams looked to be on his way towards a victory, but a late Mets rally led to a 6-5 Phillies loss on Tuesday. Williams allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out five.

Williams (4-10, 6.13 ERA) got off to a bad start, as he allowed a two-run home run to Yoenis Cespedes in the first inning. He gave up another run in the second, but the Phillies were able to grab the lead with a four-run third inning.

Williams, however, got into more trouble in the sixth, when the Mets plated three runs to regain the lead, which they would not give up. 

After three straight starts of allowing one earned run, Williams has given up a total of 12 earned runs over seven innings in his most recent two outings.


Phillies SP Jerome Williams blasted out in second inning


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2015) The Phillies had a right to be encouraged lately by the work of embattled starter Jerome Williams. He arrived on the mound Thursday in Miami with three consecutive strong starts under his belt.

Well, so much for encouragement. Williams was absolutely mashed by the Marlins. He barely survived the first inning before being bounced in the second. He finished having surrendered eight runs on eight hits and four walks in 1 2/3 innings in sending his ERA soaring to 6.10, the worst among qualifying starters in the majors.

The exclamation points came courtesy of Martin Prado and Marcell Ozuna, whose blasts drove in all four runs in the second.

Phillies' Jerome Williams struggles against Blue Jays on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Phillies right-hander Jerome Williams had a sub-par outing against the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Williams, making his second start since returning from the disabled list, allowed four runs on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings. He threw 49 of his 75 pitches for strikes in the 8-2 loss.

Williams (3-8, 6.36 ERA) allowed a two-run home run to new Blue Jay Troy Tulowitzki in the third inning. Two more runs would come across to score in the fifth before Williams was lifted from the game. 

The veteran hurler was better in his previous start, allowing three runs in six innings during a win against the Cubs. But overall, Williams has struggled for the better part of the season. He has allowed at least four earned runs in eight of his 16 starts in 2015. 


Phillies SP Jerome Williams has encouraging start Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2015) When you're Phillies starter Jerome Williams, mediocrity is encouraging. And he was at least mediocre Friday against the host Cubs.

Williams managed arguably his finest performance since late April, which isn't saying much. He yielded three runs on six hits in six innings with one walk and four strikeouts to keep his team in a game it eventually won.

The right-hander fell behind on a solo homer by Kris Bryant in the third and again in the fifth on a Chris Coghlan two-run double. He would have taken the loss if his team had not rallied in the ninth.

Williams had not started since June 16, when he gave up six earned runs and could not survive the first inning, then went on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. His ERA now rests at a still-miserable 6.28.
