The athletic, quick-armed Williams' velocity has been on a steady upward trajectory over the last year. He wasn't completely healthy last summer and pitched mostly at 87-88 mph, touching 91 mph in the fall at Florida Diamond Club. But he has touched 97 this spring and sat in the low 90s in his best outings this spring, though his velocity has fallen into the high 80s late in some outings. He has a quick arm and gets armside life to his fastball. His curveball has flashed average, though it's inconsistent, and he is working on a slider. His changeup flashes average potential but is even less consistent than his curve. There is some effort to his delivery, his velocity played down a tick out of the stretch and he is somewhat raw, but he is very athletic. The 6-foot, 175-pound Williams a slender build with long arms that will accommodate additional strength gains.
