Player Outlook
Trevor Williams made 30 starts for the Nationals last season, which was just the second time in the 31-year-old's career that he's reached that plateau. It looked like the right-hander was going to be at least passable for the first two months of the season when he held a 3.93 ERA, but a 5.15 FIP was the better indicator of his performance and, sure enough, his ERA climbed to 6.55 the rest of the way (which included a 12.51 ERA in September). Williams is owed $7 million in 2024 and the Nats aren't exactly teeming with starting pitcher options, so he'll probably begin the year in the rotation. However, the odds that he'll end the year still in the rotation wouldn't appear high.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Inefficient against Phillies

    Williams didn't factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over 4.1 innings against Philadelphia. He struck out three. Williams was pulled at 97 pitches midway through the fourth but was able to keep one of baseball's best offenses in check. He yielded just one extra-base hit and the final run charged against him came after his departure, when Jacob Barnes allowed a walk, a single and a sacrifice fly to the first three batters he faced. After posting a 5.55 ERA last season, Williams boasts a 2.35 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP across 46.0 innings with a 4-0 record. He's scheduled to face the Mariners during a three-game home series next weekend.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Serves up first homer

    Williams came away with a no-decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out two. The right-hander tossed 48 of 81 pitches for strikes and got burned by some shaky defense behind him, but the one earned run he allowed came on a solo shot by Eloy Jimenez in the second inning -- the first homer Williams has served up this season. It's been an impressive turnaround in that department for the 32-year-old right-hander after he was taken deep 34 times in 2023, most in the National League. Williams will take a 1.94 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 32:13 K:BB through 41.2 innings into his next outing, which lines up for this weekend in Philadelphia.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Nationals-White Sox postponed

    Williams and the Nationals won't play Monday against the White Sox after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in Chicago, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. Williams' next start will simply be pushed back a day to one half of the twin bill, and the White Sox will do the same with their scheduled starter for Monday, Chris Flexen.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Fires five scoreless

    Williams (4-0) secured the win Tuesday versus the Orioles after throwing five scoreless innings and striking out eight batters while surrendering two hits. Williams was carving up the Orioles' lineup Tuesday, striking out eight of the first 15 batters he faced while allowing only one baserunner -- a single from Adley Rutschman. Williams likely could have remained in the game longer; however, the Nationals seem determined to keep him limited to roughly 80 pitches per start this season. The 32-year-old right-hander boasts a 1.96 ERA and 1.06 WHIP heading into his next start, tentatively scheduled to come Monday against the White Sox.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Shuts out Texas for third win

    Williams (3-0) picked up the win Wednesday, shutting out the Rangers over five innings while allowing five hits and four walks. He struck out three. Williams ran into trouble in the second and fifth innings, allowing the first three batters to reach base in both frames, but the right-hander was able to work his way out of each jam unscathed. He's now won his first three decisions to open the season and hasn't allowed more than one run in any of his last three starts. Williams did, however, issue a season-high four walks in Wednesday's win and now carries a 4:6 K:BB over his last two outings.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Stingy in no-decision

    Williams came away with a no-decision in Friday's 3-1 win over the Marlins, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out only one. The veteran right-hander continues to be used very judiciously by the Nationals, but it's hard to argue with the results. Williams threw 80 pitches (46 strikes) Friday and got lifted before most Miami hitters got a third look at him, and he's completed six innings only once in his first five starts this season. Despite those limits, as well as a poor 18.8 percent strikeout rate, he's delivered a 2.70 ERA and 1.05 WHIP through 26.2 innings. He faces a tougher test in his next outing, however, which lines up for a road start next week against the Rangers.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Baffles Astros in quality start

    Williams came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning win over Houston, allowing one run on three hits over six innings. He struck out four without walking a batter. The soft-tossing righty delivered his first quality start of the season by filling up the strike zone and generating plenty of weak contact, firing 52 of 77 pitches for strikes -- but only four swinging strikes. Williams has had an impressive beginning to the season despite his lack of dominance, producing a 2.91 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB through 21.2 innings. He'll look to keep rolling in his next outing, which is scheduled to come on the road next weekend in Miami.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Another effective start

    Williams did not factor into the decision, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over 5.1 innings during Sunday's loss to Oakland. He struck out seven. Williams held a 6-1 lead entering the bottom of the sixth but allowed two of three runners faced in the inning to reach prior to being pulled. He then sat by as he watched the bullpen allow both inherited runners to score plus as additional four more that provided the winning one-run margin for the Athletics. The ninth-year veteran has gotten off to a very solid start for the Nationals, winning his first two starts prior to putting his team in position again on Sunday. The competition will ramp up in his next start, currently scheduled to take place next weekend during a home series against the Astros.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Cruises to second victory

    Williams (2-0) earned the win over San Francisco on Monday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks while striking out two batters over five innings. Williams gave up a run in the first inning but kept the Giants off the scoreboard for the rest of the outing and was backed by plenty of run support. The right-hander notched only five whiffs and two punchouts, but he allowed just three baserunners after the first frame. Williams has started the season well, allowing a modest three runs over 10.1 frames. His 7:5 K:BB isn't as promising, though that hasn't prevented him from earning half of Washington's four wins thus far.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Yields three hits in win

    Williams (1-0) picked up the win Wednesday against Pittsburgh, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out five. Williams was good aside than a rough second inning, retiring 13 of the 14 batters he faced outside of the frame. Both of the runs against Williams came in the second, with a leadoff double and back-to-back walks filling the bases for an eventual two-RBI single by Michael Taylor. After tying for the fifth-most homers allowed and posting a 5.55 ERA in his first season as a National, Williams looked more like his 2022 self (3.21 ERA in 89.2 innings) Wednesday. Still, he is not a recommended fantasy option in his next projected start Monday at San Francisco.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Gets stretched out Friday

    Williams gave up two runs on seven hits over five innings in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets. He struck out five. Only one of the hits off Williams went for extra bases, an opposite-field solo shot for DJ Stewart in the first inning, and the veteran right-hander built up to 68 pitches (48 strikes). Williams has been hittable this spring, but his 6.30 ERA in 10 innings is backed by a sharp 11:0 K:BB. He seems on track for a spot at the back of the Nationals' rotation to begin the season.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Roughed up by Astros

    Williams gave up five runs on eight hits over three innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros. He struck out three without walking a batter. Facing most of Houston's Opening Day lineup, Williams looked overmatched as he served up homers to Jose Altuve and Kyle Tucker in the first inning. Those were the only extra-base hits the veteran right-hander allowed, however. Williams is penciled into a spot in the Washington rotation after finishing third on the staff last season with 144.1 innings, but his 5.55 ERA and 1.60 WHIP don't offer much hope of fantasy utility.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Sees first action of spring

    Williams gave up one hit and struck out three over two scoreless innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. The veteran right-hander reported to camp late due to the birth of his child and is a little behind the Nationals' other pitchers, but Williams still has plenty of time to build up before Opening Day. Per Paige Leckie of MLB.com, he threw 15 pitches in the bullpen after the outing as he plays catch-up. Williams' 5.55 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 2023 keep him far from the fantasy radar, but the 31-year-old is seen as a reliable innings-eater for a patchwork Nats rotation that's had trouble developing pitching prospects in recent years.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Nationals' Trevor Williams: Lit up in loss

    Williams (6-9) took the loss Saturday, allowing nine runs (eight earned) on 12 hits over four innings against Miami. He struck out three without issuing a walk. 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.

  • 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.
