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

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
