Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams (hamstring) is likely headed to the disabled list after feeling a pop in his hamstring Tuesday, June 16.
Fantasy Tip: Chad Billingsley (shoulder) is probably the best bet to take his spot when he returns, but he'll probably need one or two more rehab starts. Severino Gonzalez and Adam Morgan are also options, but both have ERAs over 4.50 at Class AAA Lehigh Valley.
