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
Former Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold has retired, Michael Pfaff — president of the Long Island Ducks — announced on Twitter on Sunday.
Reimold, 33, was hitting .238/.359/.397 in 78 plate appearances with the Ducks. He was coming off of a disappointing 2016 campaign as a reserve outfielder with the O’s, finishing with a .664 OPS.
Over parts of eight seasons in the majors, Reimold hit .246/.323/.422 with 56 home runs and 174 RBI.
Angels outfielder Mike Trout sprained his left thumb and had to leave Sunday’s game against the Marlins. He underwent an X-ray, which revealed no fracture, but he is set to have an MRI on Monday for further evaluation, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
Trout went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. The reigning AL MVP is batting .337/.461/.742 with 16 home runs, 36 RBI, 36 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 206 plate appearances this season. Needless to say, losing him for any amount of time would be a devastating loss for the Angels, who are 26-27 and tied for second place in the AL West.
