Pirates part ways with Trevor Williams, Jose Osuna to clear room on 40-man roster

It was quite the fall for Williams, 28, a member of the Pirates’ starting rotation the past five seasons. He was only two years removed from an incredible 2018 season, when he had a 1.38 ERA in the second half and 1.29 over his final 13 starts to finish 14-10 with a 3.11 ERA.

But Williams went 2-8 with a 6.18 ERA and 1.572 WHIP in 55 1/3 innings over 11 starts this past season and had a 31-37 record and 4.43 ERA in 94 starts with the Pirates. With Williams entering his second year of arbitration, which likely would have increased his $2.825 million salary, he became a candidate to be nontendered.

“I had a chance to talk to Trevor today and just express to him how much we appreciate who he is as a person, his professionalism and what he’s done for the Pirates,” Cherington said. “He has been a good and reliable pitcher for the Pirates. He is certainly a really good guy. We’ll be rooting for him. We didn’t think we were going to be able to tender him, so we made that decision.”
