Interview conducted by Contributor - Rick Dykhuizen

This past weekend Rick Dykhuizen caught up with the San Francisco Giants former top prospect (per Baseball America), Jerome Williams.

Williams has played with the San Francisco Giants (2003-2005), Chicago Cubs (2005-2006), Washington Nationals (2007), Los Angeles Dodgers (2008), and Oakland Athletics (2009). Williams was a Giants' 1st-round draft pick in the 1999 Major League Baseball Draft, the 39th overall selection. Jerome was a regular starter in the Giants rotation in 2003-2004, going 7-5 with a 3.30 ERA in 2003 and 10-7 with a 4.24 ERA in 2004.

Signed by the Angels back in June, Williams has posted a 4.21 to date for the Bees (Triple-A), but has posted four straight quality starts, including a gem on July 24th at home against the Tacoma Rainers. Williams hurled six shutout innings against a solid Tacoma lineup, striking out 12 batters.

With Williams' Major League experience and recent success, combined with pitching on the same day as Joel Pineiro, Jerome is a strong candidate to replace the struggling Pineiro in the rotation.

With all of that out of the way, check out the Jerome Williams interview below.

Love to hear what you think!
