Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams struggles again Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams gave up six runs on nine hits in four innings of work Saturday against the Twins. Williams, however, isn't concerned at all with his spring issues on the mound, reports MLB.com.

"I think I'll be fine. Everything is fine," Williams said. "I need to attack, attack."

Williams is now 0-3 with a 6.60 ERA this spring and has given up a total of 11 runs in his last two outings.

"Some of the hits were pretty decent," conceded Williams. "Some others just found holes. I felt good, I felt fine. Physically, everything is fine. There's a couple of pitches I need to work on. I was trying to be too fine."

Manager Ryne Sandberg is taking his struggles into consideration.

"He's a little off with his command," said Sandberg. "He's a not as sharp as he wants to be. He's usually sharper than this in his last couple of outings."

Phillies' Jerome Williams (hamstring) struggles in return Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams returned from a hamstring injury Sunday, allowing five runs (four earned) on 10 hits in three innings while striking out two in his team's spring game against the Red Sox.

Williams was scratched from Tuesday's scheduled start due to the hamstring issue. He surrendered a pair of home runs in Sunday's outing.

"It was a good lineup out there," Williams said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I just wanted to get my work in, get back on that mound and see how everything feels. It was rough. The quality of the pitches wasn't quite there, [everything] pretty much up in the zone. But overall, I think it was a good test for my hamstring and my body to be out there pitching."

Despite owning a 5.73 ERA in 11 spring innings, Williams is expected to open the season in the Phillies' rotation.

"I just wanted to come in [on Smoak] and got too far in," Williams said, per MLB.com. "And the base hit through the hole, I just didn't locate it. So, it's back to the drawing board. Go out there and practice it."
