Top Brandon Williamson News

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Out until late May

    Reds manager David Bell said Wednesday that Williamson (shoulder) will likely be sidelined until late May, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Williamson has been on the shelf since mid-March with a left shoulder strain and it's unclear whether he has begun a throwing program. The southpaw had been in contention for a spot in the Reds' rotation before the injury and could be under consideration again, but he'll need to get healthy first.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Shifts to injured list

    The Reds placed Williamson (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list Wednesday.

    The left-hander exited his March 17 start with a left shoulder strain and won't be available to begin the regular season. Williamson was expected to be shut down from throwing for a few days, but it's unclear where he currently stands in his recovery. Andrew Abbott is rounding out Cincinnati's rotation, at least until Nick Lodolo (lower leg) is ready.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Bound for injured list

    Williamson (shoulder) will begin the season on the injured list, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Williamson left Sunday's game against Cleveland early due to shoulder soreness, and his injury is apparently severe enough to cause him to miss the first few weeks of the regular season. Manager David Bell said Tuesday that Williamson will be shut down from throwing for a couple of days, and there is no timetable currently in place for his return. With Williamson out, Andrew Abbott will fill the final spot in the Reds' Opening Day rotation.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Competing for rotation spot

    Reds manager David Bell said Monday that Williamson (shoulder) is competing with Andrew Abbott for the fifth spot in the rotation, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Bell also added that Williamson is feeling better after having to exit an appearance Sunday with a sore left shoulder, although it's not clear when he might be cleared to pitch again. Whoever wins the fifth spot might just be keeping the seat warm for Nick Lodolo (lower leg), who could be back by April 10.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Leaves game with soreness

    Williamson left Sunday's spring training game against the Guardians with shoulder soreness, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Manager David Bell revealed why Williamson had to leave the game early. The pitcher was taken out of the game due to soreness in his left shoulder. The Reds are hopeful that it is nothing serious. In three spring training appearances, the 25-year-old had allowed four earned runs with nine strikeouts and zero walks in 9.0 innings.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Makes second spring appearance

    Williamson allowed three runs on five hits and struck out three over three innings in Friday's spring start against Arizona.

    This was Williamson's second Cactus League appearance and first start. The Diamondbacks touched him for runs in the first two innings, before the left-hander ripped off a perfect third frame. Williamson was included as the fifth starter in the latest roster projection from Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. That represents a change from Sheldon's first projection, which had Nick Lodolo (tibia) at the back end of the rotation. Recent news that Lodolo will undergo additional testing clouds the final spot.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Nabs fifth win

    Williamson (5-5) earned the win in Friday's 19-2 victory in St. Louis after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out two.

    Williamson cruised to an easy win thanks to massive run support, but he still delivered his first quality start since Aug. 29 and first win since Aug. 7. The 25-year-old lefty will end his rookie campaign with a 4.46 ERA and a 98:39 K:BB through 117 frames. Williamson registered a 5.55 ERA over his final five starts.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Pulled in fifth frame

    Williamson did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk over 4.1 innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out three.

    Williamson allowed only two baserunners through four innings but was tagged by a Jack Suwinski solo homer to lead off the fifth. Williamson then allowed a one-out double to Henry Davis followed by an RBI single by Jason Delay and was removed after 74 pitches. Following a stretch during which he worked into the sixth in eight of nine starts, Williamson has failed to get through the fifth in each of his last three appearances. The rookie has started 22 games for the Reds spanning 111 innings and will carry a 4.54 ERA into his final start of the regular season, scheduled to take place next weekend in St. Louis.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Struggles in return

    Williamson did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks over four innings against the Tigers. He struck out four.

    Williamson returned from the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday and lasted only four innings, his shortest outing since July 6. The 25-year-old rookie looked especially rusty during a 29-pitch first inning in which he allowed three runs on five hits. Williamson will look to bounce back in his next start, which is slated to come on the road against the Mets this weekend.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Activated for Tuesday's start

    Williamson (illness) was activated from the COVID-19-related injured list ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday at Detroit.

    Williamson wound up missing a couple of weeks while battling COVID-like symptoms. The 25-year-old left-hander returns to a 4-4 record, 4.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 87:33 K:BB across the 98.2 innings covering his first 19 starts.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Slated to return Tuesday

    Williamson (illness) will return from the COVID-19-related injured list to start Tuesday against the Tigers, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Williamson will have gone exactly two weeks between starts, as he was placed on the COVID-19 list Sept. 2 after making his last appearance for the Reds four days earlier. The left-hander had turned in two straight quality starts before going on the list, but he's been an up-and-down performer this season and might not be ready for a full workload Tuesday.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Won't start Sunday

    Williamson was placed on the COVID-19 injured list and won't start as scheduled Sunday against the Cubs, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Williamson joins Hunter Greene, Ben Lively and Fernando Cruz as Reds pitchers on the COVID list. No replacement starter has been named for Sunday, but Connor Phillips, Michael Mariot and Levi Stoudt are potential options to be called up from Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Gets no help in loss

    Williamson (4-4) allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits and struck out five without walking a batter over six innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Giants.

    Williamson was let down by his offense and defense. An error in the third inning ultimately led to Patrick Bailey's two-run home run, while the Cincinnati bats were held without a hit until the ninth inning. Williamson finishes August with mixed results, allowing four or more runs in three of his six starts without giving up more than one run in any of the other three outings. He's at a 4.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 87:33 K:BB through 98.2 innings across 19 starts overall. The rookie southpaw is lined up for a home start versus the Cubs over the weekend.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Tosses six scoreless frames

    Williamson ended with a no-decision against Arizona on Thursday, allowing six hits and one walk while striking out six batters over six scoreless innings.

    All six of the hits against Williamson were singles, and he picked up his fifth quality start of the campaign.

Williamson has had a few blow-ups this season but has been mostly consistent, giving up three or fewer earned runs in 14 of his 18 outings. He's at a 4.18 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 82:33 K:BB over 92.2 frames overall.

  • Reds' Brandon Williamson: Allows four runs in loss

    Williamson (4-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits and one walk over 5.2 innings against Toronto. He struck out six.

    Williamson allowed nine hits to Toronto, eight of which were singles, including a string of three consecutive run-scoring base knocks in the fourth inning. The one extra-base hit surrendered by the 25-year-old was a fifth-inning solo homer by Davis Schneider, which gave the Blue Jays a 4-3 lead and proved to be the difference. After a challenging start to his rookie campaign, Williamson has pitched well since the start of July, posting a 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 47:15 K:BB across 48 innings. He lines up to face Arizona on the road next week.
