Jerome Williams has been on the disabled list since collapsing in the clubhouse following his June 18 start, but he’ll be activated to pitch Saturday versus the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Helluva welcome back.

While rehabbing in the minors Williams got knocked around for six runs in two innings at Triple-A on July 1, but bounced back to throw six innings of three-run ball with seven strikeouts and zero walks there on July 6.

He had a 4.56 ERA and solid 56/26 K/BB ratio in 83 innings for the Angels before experiencing breathing problems that he blamed on asthma and anxiety.

    Wow, I read the headline and thought the Angels’ clubhouse collapsed! Y’know, like what’s going on in Boston. Glad the guy is better and the clubhouse is intact.

    The Yankees knocked him around the first time they saw him, if things go for him as they did in the first meeting he’ll be in for a short day.
