Jerome Williams hospitalized after passing out in clubhouse

Jerome Williams struggled Monday night versus the Giants, failing to make it out of the fourth inning  against his former team, and afterward the veteran right-hander had to be hospitalized for shortness of breath.

For now the Angels are saying the hospitalization was a precautionary measure, but Williams remained there overnight and is expected to undergo further testing to determine the problem.

Torii Hunter told reporters afterward that Williams “passed out in the locker room” and manager Mike Scioscia indicated that the shortness of breath didn’t occur until after he’d left the game.

Williams threw 75 pitches, allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks in 3.1 innings, and Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that he “started feeling dizzy when returning to the Angels clubhouse.”

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
