Jerome Williams not helping case to join Astros' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) Prior to Sunday's start against the Cardinals, Astros manager Bo Porter said pitcher Jerome Williams was going to make the team as a starter or reliever. Well, Sunday he didn't help his cause to land a spot in the rotation.

Williams gave up an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the second inning before St. Louis broke out for four runs in the third inning.

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) As long as Jerome Williams passes his physical Wednesday, then he will join the mix this spring among pitchers vying for a spot on the Astros' roster. Williams will get the chance to compete for a rotation spot, but he's fine if he lands a bullpen role, according to MLB.com.

"In my eyes, all I want to do is go to camp and compete," he said. "That's the No. 1 thing with me. I want to go out there and compete. For me, I would love to start, but for the past three years, I've been doing both. It doesn't matter what the role is, as long as I go out there and help out the team. It doesn't matter if I'm in the bullpen or the rotation. I'm going to give it my all and go out there and do my best."
