Dave Williams Undergoes Surgery

Gotham Baseball is also reporting that Dave Williams had surgery on a disc in his neck. It has not been determined how much time he will miss.


Lefthanded pitcher Dave Williams underwent surgery today to repair a herniated disc in his neck. The procedure was performed by Dr. Patrick O’Leary at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Williams’ return to baseball activities will be determined after evaluating X-Rays next week. The 6-3, 230-pounder began experiencing pain earlier this month when he started his throwing program.

Dave went 3-1 with a 5.59 ERA in six games, five starts for New York last season. In 29.0 innings, he yielded 39 hits, 18 runs, earned, with four walks and 16 strikeouts. He was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for minor league righthanded pitcher Robert Manuel on May 25th. Williams also was 2-3 with a 7.20 ERA in eight starts with the Reds. In 40.0 innings, he allowed 54 hits, 34 runs, 32 earned, with 16 walks and 16 strikeouts
