With the win, Williams improved to 2-4 on the year. If he gets another start, it would likely come against the Yankees.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jerome Williams allows four unearned runs vs. Nationals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Astros pitcher Jerome Williams gave up four runs -- all unearned -- while surrendering six hits in 3 2/3 innings and striking out three in his team's 10-9 win over the Nationals Wednesday.

Williams was signed this offseason and could slot into the rotation or bullpen this season after making 25 starts and 12 relief appearances with the Angels in 2013. He's given up just two earned runs in 8 1/3 innings this spring while striking out nine and walking none. It makes sense for the Astros to stick him in the rotation to start the season, and it's possible Williams could build trade value with a strong first half as a starting pitcher.
