Devin Terran Williams is an American professional baseball pitcher who currently plays for the Milwaukee Brewers in Major League Baseball. Williams was born on September 21, 1994. He made his MLB debut in 2019.
Williams started his high school career at Christian Brothers College High School, where he remained until his sophomore year, when he moved to Hazelwood, Missouri, to attend Hazelwood West High School.
During the Major League Baseball draft in 2013, the Milwaukee Brewers chose him with the 54th overall pick in the second round of the draft.
Instead of enrolling at the University of Missouri, he decided to sign a contract with the Brewers and get a signing bonus of $1.35 million.
Williams suffered a tear to the ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow while participating in spring training in 2017.
Because he needed surgery for Tommy John, he was out for the full season. He was selected to play for the Brewers in the All-Star Futures Game 2019, which took place in 2019.
His two key pitches are a 4-seam fastball and an unusual changeup, which resembles a cricket leg-googly spinner bowled at 85mph with a high spin rate of 2852 rpm when the ball is released from the middle finger of the ring finger.
Is Devon Williams Injured?
The Milwaukee Brewers won the NL Central for the second time in four years in late September. A few days later, reliever Devin Williams fractured his hand pounding a wall and is likely gone for the season.
Williams didn’t discover the full degree of his injuries for a few days after that. While playing catch the next day, he felt excruciating discomfort and his team sent him to get his arm X-rayed in St.
Louis next week. The next day, the crew was informed of the break. Even though Williams had a hard time talking about what occurred, he did and the team supported him.
