Jerome Williams “feeling better” after being hospitalized

1 Comment

Hospitalized for shortness of breath after passing out in the clubhouse during Monday night’s game, Jerome Williams posted on Twitter yesterday that he’s “feeling better” and “going to get some rest so I can be back on that mound competing again.”

When that might be is unclear, but for now Williams remains on the Angels’ active roster and Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that he’s scheduled to undergo another round of tests today.

In responding to a question from an Angels fan last night, Williams tweeted: “I’m fine. Just couldn’t breathe.”

His next turn in the rotation would be Sunday at home versus the Dodgers

Update: The photographer was apparently in on the action, according to Topps. Still pretty funny. (Hat tip: Mike Ashmore)

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
