The Los Angeles Angels suffered a pitching setback in Spring Training on Sunday. Jerome Williams, the 1999 first round draft pick who bounced around independent and international baseball for years before making his comeback with the Angels last season, suffered an injury during defensive drills on Friday.
Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports that Williams has suffered a left hamstring strain. The Angels stated that the severity of the injury is unknown at this time. Williams will be re-examined on Saturday. Williams was expected to be competing for the fifth spot in the starting rotation and many were predicting he would win the job.
Hopefully the news is positive and Williams can continue being a feel-good story for the Angels. Certainly we here at SB Nation Los Angeles are wishing him a speedy recovery.
