News: Williams won Monday against the Mariners as he pitched seven innings and allowed one run, three hits and three walks to go along four strikeouts. Impact: Williams has allowed three runs in 12.1 innings in two starts for the Phillies and may remain in the starting rotation based on those two outings. He struggled as a member of the Rangers and the Astros, so this recent run of success might only be short lived.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams pitched 5.1 innings in his debut with the Phillies Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out three batters before picking up a no-decision. Impact: Picked up off waivers Sunday, Williams didn't do all that bad in his first start with the Phillies. Still, if the pitching-starved Rangers and the Astros didn't want him and his 6.43 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 47:20 K:BB ratio in 63 innings pitched this season, you have to wonder why the Phillies would. Williams' next start is set for Monday at home against the Mariners.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Ryne Sandberg confirmed Williams will start Tuesday vs. the Angels, Stephen Gross of The Morning Call reports. Impact: There's little reason to be optimistic about Williams' chances of faring well against the Angels, who boast one of the most prolific offenses in baseball. During stops with the Rangers and Astros this season, Williams has been highly prone to contact, allowing 77 hits in 57.2 innings, inflating his ERA to 6.71. Even in deeper and NL-only formats, it might be best to steer clear of using him Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Sunday. Impact: The pitching-starved Rangers determined Williams wasn't needed on their injury-laden 40-man roster, but the Phillies evidently didn't feel the same way, scooping up the 32-year-old and immediately adding him to their rotation. He's scheduled to make his first turn for the Phillies on Tuesday against the Angels. Expectations should remain low in both mixed and NL-only formats for Williams, who was battered for a 6.71 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 57.2 innings between the Astros and Rangers this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams was designated for assignment on Friday. Impact: This was a corresponding move to activating Geovany Soto from the DL, and Williams' 9.90 ERA in 10 innings this season with the Rangers made him very expendable.(RotoWire, )
