Jerome Williams Starting For Angels Saturday

Los Angeles Angels righthander Jerome Williams was placed on the 15-day disabled list in June after passing out in the clubhouse following a short (3⅓ innings) start against the San Francisco Giants.

He was officially diagnosed with anxiety, as well as having an asthma attack.

Williams will be returning to the Angels’ rotation Saturday as they face the New York Yankees in the Bronx, according to the Los Angeles Times:

Right-hander Jerome Williams (6-5, 4.46) will return from the disabled list to start Saturday, and All-Star and American League ERA leader [Jered] Weaver will start Sunday, [manager Mike] Scioscia said.

The Angels need Williams to be a solid rotation contributor to remain in postseason contention. C.J. Wilson will start for the Angels Friday, according to the Times, and after Williams and Weaver, Ervin Santana will begin the Angels’ series against the Tigers in Detroit Monday.
