Williams missed the entire 2013 and ’15 seasons with Tommy John surgeries ending each. The lefty Williams was originally drafted in the 31st round of the 2008 draft by Tampa Bay out of high school in Cincinnati, but instead went to college at Marshall and was taken in the 12th round by the Rangers three years later. Prior to the injuries, Williams had a fastball in the high-90s. The injuries have made it so that Williams has never made it above the High-A level, despite strong K/9 numbers. After the rehab was complete, Williams got off to a strong start with High-A Daytona, not allowing a run through the end of May.
