Nationals' Trevor Williams: Back with club
Williams reported to the Nationals' camp Sunday following the birth of his daughter, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The veteran right-hander wasn't with the team for the start of spring training since his wife was due to give birth, but he's now joined the Nationals after spending some time with his family. Williams threw to high schoolers at home in San Diego, so he was still able to get some work in before reporting to camp and shouldn't be significantly behind the other pitchers.... See More ...

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Delayed arrival to camp
Williams hasn't yet reported to spring training as he awaits the birth of his child, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The right-hander will remain home in San Diego until the arrival of his family's newest addition. Williams is penciled in as the Nationals' No. 5 starter to begin the season despite stumbling to a 5.55 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 144.1 innings during 2023, but the eventual return of Cade Cavalli (elbow) could bump the veteran to the bullpen over the summer....

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Inefficient in final start
Williams came away with a no-decision Friday in the Nationals' 10-6 win over Atlanta, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out four.
The right-hander needed 75 pitches (43 strikes) to record 10 outs, falling well short of any chance to collect his seventh win of the season. Williams wound up making 30 starts for a Washington squad in dire needs of dependable rotation options, but his 5.55 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 111:53 K:BB through 144.1 innings kept him far from the fantasy radar. The 31-year-old is under contract for one more season at $7 million, but the Nats will hope their younger arms develop to the point that Williams can be shifted back into a swingman or long-relief role in 2024....

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Start getting skipped
Williams' next start is being skipped, but he will make a final start next week, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The weekend rotation for the Nationals in Atlanta will be Jake Irvin, Patrick Corbin, Joan Adon and another to be announced. Williams will either start in a two-game series early next week in Baltimore or next weekend in Atlanta. The 31-year-old has had a rough September. In his three starts, he has allowed 17 earned runs in 10.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Trevor Williams: Lasts just two frames Saturday
Williams allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one batter over two innings in a no-decision against Milwaukee on Saturday.
Williams was ambushed from the outset, allowing six of the first seven batters he faced in the contest to reach base, with the only out during that span coming by way of a sacrifice fly. That led to three runs, though it could have been much worse, as the Brewers finished the inning with the bases loaded. Williams was better in the second, facing the minimum three batters thanks to an inning-ending double play, but he didn't return to the mound for the third after tossing 70 pitches. It's been a rough go for the right-hander of late, as he's surrendered a whopping 18 runs (17 earned) over 10.1 frames across his past three starts.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Trevor Williams: Handed loss No. 10
Williams (6-10) suffered the loss Sunday against the Dodgers, allowing six runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings.
Williams allowed four runs to score through the first two frames, highlighted by a solo home run from James Outman in the second. He kept the Dodgers off the board in the third and fourth but exited the game in the fifth with the bases loaded following two walks and a single. He threw 101 pitches and just 55 strikes before departing the game and has now failed to reach five innings in five of his last seven starts while registering an 8.39 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and 29:16 K:BB over that span. Williams has just two wins since the start of July and will look to find his groove again in a projected start against the Brewers.... See More ... See Less

It was a rough afternoon for Williams, as the right-hander allowed season highs in hits (12), earned runs (eight) and homers (four). He surrendered runs in all four innings in which he appeared and failed to make it through five frames for the fourth time in his last six outings. Williams has now lost five of his last six decisions (spanning 10 starts) and has given up at least three home runs in three of his last five starts.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Trevor Williams: Suffers tough-luck loss
Williams (6-8) took the loss Sunday against the Marlins after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings.
Williams turned in another impressive outing and actually recorded consecutive quality starts for the first time this season. Williams allowed both his runs in the third after Luis Arraez led off with a single and Jorge Soler followed with a two-run homer. The right-hander has now given up just two runs over his last 13 innings after allowing 20 runs in 19 innings over his previous four starts. Williams now sits at a 4.82 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 99:45 K:BB in 130.2 innings. He has just one win since early July and will look to change that in a rematch with Miami his next time out....

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Fires six shutout innings
Williams (6-7) yielded two hits and three walks over six scoreless frames Sunday, striking out four and earning a victory against the Phillies.
Williams rolled through the Phillies despite throwing just 54 of 94 pitches for strikes. It was his first scoreless appearance since June 21. He'd been rocked for 20 runs over his previous 19 innings but lowered his season ERA back down to 4.95 after Sunday's outing. Williams' next start is lined up to be in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Trevor Williams: Struggles against A's
Williams did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks over 4.1 innings against Oakland. He struck out four.
The A's got to Williams early Sunday with three runs on a pair of first-inning homers. However, the 31-year-old right-hander was ultimately spared the loss when the Nats rallied for six runs in the ninth to win 8-7. Still, it's been a struggle for Williams of late. He's allowed six home runs over his previous two starts while pitching to a 9.47 ERA in his last four outings. Overall, he's 5-7 with a 5.20 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 90:40 K:BB across 24 starts (117.2 innings this season). Williams will try to right the ship in his next outing, currently scheduled as a home matchup with the Phillies.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Trevor Williams: Hit hard in matinee
Williams (5-7) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, surrendering six runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over 4.2 innings. He struck out seven.
Making his first start since a stint on the bereavement list, Williams set a new season high in strikeouts but was hit hard when the Phillies did make contact. The veteran right-hander's 1.99 HR/9 is the worst mark of his career during a season in which he's thrown 100 or more innings, and it's inflated his ERA to 5.00. He figures to have a little more success keeping the ball in the park in his next outing, at home this weekend against the A's.... See More ... See Less

Williams will not start Monday against the Phillies as scheduled, as the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Activated, starting Monday
The Nationals reinstated Williams (personal) from the bereavement list Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Williams ended up having his turn in the rotation skipped this week after he spent six days on the bereavement list upon being deactivated Monday.

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Moves to bereavement list

Washington recalled reliever Hobie Harris from Triple-A Rochester to replace Williams on the 26-man active roster. Per MLB rules, players must spend at least three days on the bereavement list but no more than seven, so Williams could be activated by the time his next turn in the rotation comes up this weekend in Cincinnati....

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Set for bereavement leave
Nationals manager Dave Martinez said that Williams is set to be placed on the bereavement list Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The transaction isn't expected to be made official until a few hours before the Nationals' series opener with the Brewers, which begins at 7:05 p.m. ET. Williams most recently started in the Nationals' loss to the Mets on Sunday, when he worked four innings while surrendering five runs on seven hits and four walks. The right-hander will likely be ready to return from bereavement leave before his next turn through the rotation comes up this weekend in Cincinnati.... See More ... See Less

Nationals' Trevor Williams: Escapes with no-decision Tuesday
Williams didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Rockies, giving up four runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.
The first pitch was delayed by nearly 90 minutes due to rain, and that may have disrupted Williams' focus as he gave up a pair of runs in the second and third innings before settling in. After a second rain delay, the Nationals were able to steal a win with a late rally and take him off the hook for his sixth loss of the year. The right-hander hasn't produced a quality start since June 21, stumbling to a 5.34 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 19:9 K:BB through 28.2 innings over his last six outings. Williams will try to bounce back in his next start, which is likely to come on the road this weekend against the Mets.... See More ... See Less
