Angels starter Jerome Williams spent a night in the hospital after collapsing in the Angels’ clubhouse Monday following a rough three-inning outing against the Giants. He was released Tuesday evening and was doing fine on Wednesday, but the Halos have placed him on the 15-day disabled list to be safe.

Doctors told Williams that the collapse was caused by a combination of “asthma¬†and anxiety,” writes Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

Williams uses an inhaler to ease the side effects of his asthma. He has never been treated for anxiety.

The 30-year-old will leave behind a 4.46 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. He’s fanned 56 batters in 82 2/3 innings.
