Brewers' Devin Williams: Picks up win

Williams (2-0) earned the win Saturday against the Marlins after throwing a scoreless inning with two strikeouts. Williams was tasked with preserving a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the eighth and accomplished his task easily, sandwiching a flyout between a pair of strikeouts. The Brewers then scored the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning on a bases-loaded walk by Jace Peterson. The outing lowered Williams' season ERA to 5.25 while raising his strikeout rate to 36.8 percent.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Steps in for Hader

Williams closed out the Reds on Tuesday to earn his second save of the season. He struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning. Manager Craig Counsell revealed after the game that Josh Hader was unavailable due to mid-back spasms. Fortunately for the Brewers, they have another one of the best relievers in baseball in Williams, who can step in for saves while Hader is ailing, though it doesn't sound like the lefty will be out more than a few additional days as a result of this particular issue.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Escapes self-inflicted jam

Williams tossed a scoreless eighth inning and picked up his second hold of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Orioles. Williams did not make things easy on himself, allowing the first three batters he faced to reach base, but he punched out the next three hitters that came to the plate and maintained the one-run lead the Brewers held when he entered the contest. Williams has tossed just two innings thus far, but five of the six outs he has recorded have come via strikeout.

Devin Williams threw his cutter-slider more Friday for the Brewers in a spring training game. The results were very good.

PHOENIX — Devin Williams' second Cactus League appearance was a positive in a couple respects. Pitching an inning in a 6-3 loss to the Oakland A's in Mesa on Friday, the Milwaukee Brewers setup man not only struck out all three batters he faced but also got some good work in with the cutter-slider he's aiming to make a more regular part of his arsenal in 2022.

Brewers' Devin Williams: Threw new cutter

During a spring training game on Friday, Williams threw the new cutter about eight times, all of which to left-handed hitters, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Williams' changeup remains extremely effective with .161 BA, .232 SLG, .211 wOBA, and 47.2% Whiff% in 2021. With above-average horizontal and vertical movement, it would benefit Williams to add a pitch that breaks towards lefties. Williams hopes to use the cutter against lefties to "get them off of the other side of the plate a little bit." Although Williams isn't sure how effective the cutter will be, it's something to monitor during the season.

Unfortunately, that celebrating was tempered pretty quickly, when news came out a few days later that reliever Devin Williams broke his hand punching a wall, and would likely be out for the season.

Brewers RHP Devin Williams discusses wall punch, season-ending injury

The most recent news about Devin Williams was from October 5, with Williams having undergone surgery on his pitching hand, which he had broken when punching a wall the week before. At the time, the Brewers had finished their regular-season schedule and were a few days away from starting their NLDS matchup with the Braves. There was still hope then that Williams could pitch in the World Series — if the Brewers were able to make it that far. Unfortunately, it was their opponents in that series who made it to the World Series, with the Brewers falling to the Braves.
