Time to end the Trevor Williams experiment. Love the story with his dad being a lifelong Cubs fan but the guy is ass. Give Keegan Thompson the opportunity. Enough.
With a relatively rested bullpen (helped by two off-days earlier this week), Ross pulls the plug on Trevor Williams' outing after 2 IP and 42 pitches (25 strikes).
Alec Mills took over in 3rd out of the Cubs' bullpen, which has a 2.30 ERA in May (4th-lowest in MLB).
In 6 starts (28.1 ip) with Contreras
4.13 era 1.24 whip 33/13 k/bb 3 hr
In 2 starts (4.2 ip) with Wolters
17.36 era 3.43 whip 4/6 k/bb 3 hr
I was hoping for the symmetry of the Cubs DFAing Trevor Williams on Father’s Day. But he’s not going to make it that far.
Folks do you know why it’s ok Trevor Williams is giving up all these runs? Because his dad is a lifelong Cubs fan and has a twitter.
Trevor Williams's dad is going to be so upset when Trevor is pitching in Korea next year
The Tigers strike for three runs off Trevor Williams in the 1st inning. Cubs entered today tied for 2nd-most first-inning runs allowed in the Majors this season: https://t.co/vArUt7CujM
Trevor Williams couldn't do anything against the Pirates, Reds or Tigers.
Leash is short with Mills and Thompson ready to step in.
Schoop shoots a ball off Trevor Williams' glove and trickles behind the mound. Goes for an infield single. Tied at 2.
But but Trevor Williams dad is a lifelong cubs fan
Trevor Williams is avg less than 5 innings a start. He’s killing the Cubs BP yet Hoyer will tell Ross to keep using him every 5th game. What a pathetic organization the Cubs have become.
sorry to see Alec Mills but not sorry to see Trevor Williams leave
Anybody out there who agrees with me that Trevor Williams sucks, and doesn’t belong in the #Cubs’ rotation?
Rather have Alec Mills start than Trevor Williams. Gives the Cubs nothing.
Can we replace Trevor Williams with Keegan Thompson or Justin Steele in the rotation?! Please Rossy?!?? #CubTogether
David Ross basically said Trevor Williams has nothing 🤣
As much as I like the story of Trevor Williams and his father being a die hard Cubs fan, he's just not doing the job. Its time for someone like Mills to replace him in the rotation. #Cubs
This is the last time I waste any time on a Trevor Williams start.
It’s time to move on from Trevor Williams as a rotation piece. #cubs
DFA Trevor Williams
Trevor Williams has allowed 16 ER in 12 IP on the road this season so far. He's allowed 7 in 20 IP at home.
Trevor Williams is brutal... any chance we can give Keegan, Mills, or Steele a starting job? @Cubs
Fucking DFA Trevor Williams fucking tired of seeing this stupid fuck pitch
Can’t wait to hear more about Trevor Williams dad in Iowa. #CubTogether
Maybe just maybe, Trevor Williams is bad....
The fact guys like Trevor Williams and Alec Mills are stealing reps from Keegan Thompson and Kohl Stewart is pissing me off.
And if Trevor Williams ever wore that hair for my team, I would tell him to cut it off. Yes, I am old school to a degree.
Reading about Lester’s return while watching Trevor Williams pitch and scratching my head
Trevor Williams starts are basically bullpen games now.
