Trevor Williams Confirms No Structural Damage to His Shoulder


INDIANAPOLIS – After leaving his first start on Sunday following just nine pitches, Trevor Williams confirmed on Monday that there is no structural damage to his right shoulder.

“It is one of those things where you just have to take it slow with the shoulder,” Williams said. “Everything was intact and everything structurally was fine. Now, we are just waiting to see how my strength comes back.”

Williams said that he was not sure of the extent of the injury, but said that it is more of a muscle stiffness than anything. He said that he was not able to pitch at full strength on Sunday and combined with the cold weather, he left the start. In addition, he did not want to risk further injury.

Williams said the injury happened on the pitch, and everything felt good in warm ups and to begin the start. Though he said the shoulder “felt stronger today than yesterday,” it is a day-to-day injury and he is not sure about his next start.

Williams, a sinker ball pitcher, was acquired from the Marlins during the off-season in a lopsided deal that was compensation for Jim Benedict going to Miami. Williams is part of the five prospects that will see time in the first month in the Indianapolis rotation.
