RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Williams started 15 games for the Angels last season and made another 17 appearances out of the bullpen, finishing the year with a 4.58 ERA and 1.26 WHIP while striking out 98 batters and walking 35 in 137.2 innings. He's now a 31-year-old journeyman who hasn't flashed much potential as either a starter or reliever, but Williams could end up winning the fifth spot in the Angels' rotation with a strong spring training. If that doesn't happen, he could also end up as the long reliever and spot starter in the bullpen, a role that he held down for a good chunk of the 2012 season.

2012

Williams went four years between major league appearances, but he was surprisingly effective after being called up by the Angels in August. Williams posted a 4-0 record and 3.68 ERA in 10 games, including six starts, for the big club. Those numbers make him a potential candidate for the fifth starter's spot in the Angels' rotation, but temper your expectations as his strikeout rate tumbled after he was promoted from Triple-A while his walk rate jumped as well.

2007

Williams was non-tendered by the A's after having been claimed off of waivers from the Cubs in September. The righthander still has the Former Prospect Tag™, is still just 25 years old and signed with the pitching thin Nationals this offseason.

2006

A former top prospect, Williams has been derailed by elbow problems and asthma. Williams' low strikeout rate, combined with spotty command, have made it difficult for him to find consistency. When he has his sinker and off-speed pitches working, he's been effective. Williams is still just 24 years old and now two years removed from elbow surgery, so there's still some hope he'll get back on track. He'll try to win a spot in the Cubs rotation this spring.

2005

Williams missed more than a month-and-a-half of 2004 because of elbow surgery. He has a powerful fastball, but his declining strikeout rate might have been an indicator that his elbow was bothering him. There's plenty of upside to Williams, but plenty of risk as well. If healthy, he should win a spot in the Giants rotation this spring.

2004

As good a pitcher as Williams is, his peripherals took a big hit in the jump to the majors last year, and he's thrown a lot of pitches at ages 20 and 21. Just based on talent, he's a keeper, but there are reasons to think 2004 will not be a good year for him. If you had to choose, you'd rather have the early part of his season, so draft him and trade him on June 1.

2003

Williams did well in a full-season at Triple-A before he turned 21, going 6-11, 3.59 in 28 starts; the won-loss is misleading, the ERA isn't. He struck out 130 against 50 walks in 161 innings (7.3 K's per 9 IP, with a WHIP of 1.18). If the Giants do deal Livan Hernandez and/or Russ Ortiz in the offseason, he'll contend for a job in the Giants' rotation, if he's not traded to get offensive help at any of several positions. Watch him in the spring and be prepared to nab him late in deep NL leagues, but don't overspend on him.
