  • Devin Williams Picks Up First Win

    Milwaukee Brewers shutdown reliever Devin Williams picked up his first decision of the year getting the victory in the Brewers 4-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Williams started the season off slow, but he has now only allowed one earned run across his past 8 1/3 innings spanning nine appearances. The changeup specialist has nine strikeouts over this span as well, and appears to have returned back to his unhittable 2020 form. Last year seems like forever ago, but it's worth reminding that Williams allowed only one earned run across 27 innings while striking out 53. Josh Hader is the clear closer in Milwaukee, but Devin Williams still needs to be rostered in all formats even with his mediocre full season 3.86 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. With the upcoming series against the likes of the Braves, Royals, and Reds, look for these recent numbers to continue.

  • Devin Williams Records Fourth Hold

    Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Devin Williams logged his fourth hold of the season Tuesday after throwing a scoreless eighth inning while allowing no hits, one walk, and striking out two against the Marlins. Williams has now successfully converted four straight holds over the last week after showcasing some early struggles to begin the year. The 2020 NL Rookie of the Year has a 1.80 ERA and an 8:2 K: BB over his last five innings. He possesses one of the most lethal changeups in the league and has been absolutely unhittable over the past few weeks. If you are in a league that values hold, he's certainly a player that can help out your fantasy team.

  • Devin Williams Struggles Continue

    Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Devin Williams allowed two earned runs over an inning of relief in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Pirates. Williams allowed just one earned run all season and was named NL Rookie of the Year in 2020, but he has now given up at least one earned run in three of his four appearances in 2021. A late start to the spring could be the primary cause of his issues, and according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, in an effort to build Williams up, manager Craig Counsell is going to use him on a more regular basis for the time being, as opposed to only in setup situations in front of closer Josh Hader. When Williams is right, he has the ability to be an elite pitcher with a massive strikeout upside. He's worth monitoring as the seaon progresses. He holds more value in leagues the value holds.

  • Devin Williams Set For Cactus League Debut Saturday

    Milwaukee Brewers right-handed pitcher Devin Williams (shoulder) has yet to appear in a Cactus League outing this spring, but that is on track to change Saturday. Williams is part of the group scheduled to pitch versus Cincinnati, aiming to get ready in time to open the season as a member of Milwaukee's relief corps. The reigning National League Rookie of the Year was virtually untouchable in 2020, allowing one earned run over 27 innings while amassing 53 strikeouts. Josh Hader is entrenched as the Brewers closer, but Williams' propensity for missing bats makes him a season-long candidate in any sized season-long format, particularly those that count holds and WHIP.

  • Devin Williams Throws 25 Pitches in Live BP

    Milwaukee Brewers reliever Devin Williams threw 25 pitches in a live batting practice session Saturday. The reigning NL Rookie of The Year missed Milwaukee's Wild Card series last season due to a shoulder issue. The Brewers are rightfully taking a measured approach with the 26-year-old's throwing program this spring. He told reporters after his bullpen session that he felt good and that he's experienced zero setbacks with his shoulder. Manager Craig Counsell has already stated that Williams would not pitch in the Cactus League until after March 17 but he's trending to make his debut sometime next week. If he's able to pitch next week then he should be ready to go for Opening Day, barring any setbacks. He put up a phenomenal 2020 season when he posted a 0.33 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 53:9 K/BB ratio over 27 innings of work. Even if he's serving as the setup man to closer Josh Hader, Williams makes for a solid addition to any fantasy roster with his potentially elite ratios.
