Several comments in the diaries lately about Jerome Williams of the Giants, and about how bad he is pitching at Triple-A.

No kidding.

1-4, 9.39 ERA, 30.2 innings, 47 hits, 15/17 K/BB.

Ugh. His ratios have never been as good as his reputation, but those are downright dismal numbers. Most worrisome is the awful K/BB ratio.

Oftentimes, when a pitcher's ratios deteriorate this sharply, there is some sort of underlying health issue. If I were a betting man, I'd lay good odds right now that Williams is either hiding an injury, or is about to suffer an injury.
