Angels righthander Jerome Williams started Monday night against the San Francisco Giants in Anaheim. He got knocked out of the game in the fourth inning, and then things got worse; an inning later he passed out; outfielder Torii Hunter said all his teammates were concerned:
“I found out in the fifth inning when the trainers came down and told us that Jerome was on his way to the hospital,” Hunter said. “It was a tough thing to hear. We didn’t know what was going on. We knew he passed out in the locker room and had trouble breathing. At that point, all you could do was say a little prayer. Hopefully he’s doing all right. I hope all it was is that he was a little amped up for the game.”
Tuesday, Williams sent out this from his personal Twitter account:
Wanted to let everyone know that I’m feeling better. Gonna get some rest so I can be back on that mound competing again.

That’s good news; hopefully, Hunter is right, and Williams will be back on the mound soon.
