Trevor Williams Leaves Thursday’s Game Early with Right Side Discomfort


Trevor Williams has been the most consistent starting pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates during an injury-filled season. He threw at least six innings in each of his first eight starts this year, but that streak ended Thursday night against the San Diego Padres when he walked off the mound with the trainer in the fourth inning after an apparent side injury. He was replaced by Francisco Liriano.

When the Pirates give an update after he has been checked out, we will post it here.

UPDATE: The Pirates say that Williams had right side discomfort and he is currently being treated by the medical staff.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
