Williams Rewarded

Jerome Williams played for three teams in 2014, the last of which being the Philadelphia Phillies. It was in Philly that Williams managed to finally stick.

The 6’3” right handed hurler earned a ticket back to Philadelphia for 2015 on Tuesday, signing a one year deal worth $2.5 million.

Williams was easily the team’s most consistent starter in the second half of the season, finishing with a 4-2 record as a member of the Phillies.

Williams did allow more than four runs in a game during his final nine starts of the season, including five quality starts.

He managed to consistently keep the Phillies in games, which was not easy given the inconsistency of the often anemic offense.

Williams could contend in spring training for the third spot in the rotation, but depending on whether or not A.J. Burnett retires, he’s more likely to be penciled in at four or five.
