Philadelphia_PhilliesThe Phils have announced that they have just signed a one-year deal with Jerome Williams.

Williams, whom the Phils have picked up off of waivers during the summer, would start in nine games for the Phils, ending the season with a record of 4-2, with a 2.83 ERA, as he appeared in 57.1 innings, giving up 48 hits and 20 runs, 18 of which were earned, as he struck out 38 batters while walking 17. Williams, who also pitched for the Astros and the Rangers during the season, would appear in a total of 37 games, with 11 starts, compiling a combined record of 6-7 with a 4.77 ERA, as he pitched in 115.0 innings, giving up 125 hits and 64 runs, 61 of which were earned, as he struck out 82 batters while walking 36.

Williams would be receiving $2.5 million dollars, including performance bonuses, as he stays with the team, being one of the team’s confirmed starters, with the others being team ace Cole Hamels and Dave Buchanan, while Cliff Lee works his way back from a year ending elbow injury, and A.J. Burnett decides whether to stay with the team, attempt free agency or retire from baseball and Kyle Kendrick looks to become a free agent after the World Series is over.

Glad to still have you on the team, Jerome. Hope that 2015 will be as good for you as the final month or so of 2014 was.
