Things have not been going well for the Texas Rangers this season. They earned a rare win Friday night with a 4-1 win over the division leading Oakland A's, and in the process showed one of the many reasons why the team has struggled--pitching. Jerome Williams (Friday night's starter) was the 31st pitcher to play for the Rangers (yes--that's a record).Nate Adcock will...

ANAHEIM, Calif. Last June, Jerome Williams was ready to give up baseball. Players have those kinds of thoughts when their careers fall into a tailspin, as Williams' had in 2011. All the promise he showed as a 21-year-old kid dissolved into one last chance with an independent league team, the Lancaster Barnstormers. "I was basically one game away from calling it quits...

Jerome Williams makes most of second shot

TEMPE, AZ -- When Jerome Williams pulled his left hamstring ten days ago, he took it seriously even though he's pretty much been assured that he'll be the Angels' fifth starter when the season begins. Now, it shouldn't be a big deal that an athlete is very concerned about a leg injury, but the former first round pick has a different story to tell. There was a time...

Jerome Williams is 16-2 in 2011

The 2011 Major League Baseball season was a season of comebacks. Ryan Vogelsong made a magical comeback for the San Francisco Giants after not pitching in the majors since 2006. A few hours south of San Francisco, Jerome Williams came out of nowhere to post a 4-0 record for the Angels in six starts and ten total appearances after not pitching in the majors since 2007.
