Jerome Williams Hospitalized Overnight After Start For Angels Vs. Giants

An alarming note from tonight's game. Jerome Williams was taken to the hospital after his start on Monday night when the Los Angeles Angels lost 5-3 to the San Francisco Giants. Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times has more.

A team spokesman confirmed late in the game that Williams, who was tagged for four runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings, was taken by ambulance to UC Medical Center in Orange for precautionary reasons after experiencing shortness of breath. The Angels were awaiting word on his condition at game's end.

Williams was removed from the game after being tagged for four runs and seven hits after recording only ten outs, but it figures that you have to give him a pass for his performance if he was actually suffering from health issues that manifested themselves after he was taken out. Here's to hoping he gets better in a hurry, although it does appear all of this was precautionary.

Williams does appear to be recovering nicely and is better than he was at the ballpark, so that's good to know.

Talk about Williams with Angels fans by heading on over to Halos Haven.
