Williams “feeling better” after Monday scare …

Angels starter Jerome Williams took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to inform fans that he’s “feeling better” after being taken to the hospital on Monday night due to shortness of breath. Via his Twitter handle, @pinkpuka57, Williams wrote …

Wanted to let everyone know that I’m feeling better. Gonna get some rest so I can be back on that mound competing again.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. #Angelsfamily.

After being roughed up by the Giants on Monday night, giving up four runs in 3 1/3 innings, Williams felt dizzy and out of breath upon entering the Angels clubhouse and was taken to a local hospital, where he remained overnight to undergo further testing the following morning. After a 5-3 loss in the series opener, though, the prevailing thought in the Angels clubhouse was that he would be all right.

But it was quite the scare.

“It was tough to hear,” veteran outfielder Torii Hunter said. “We didn’t know what was going on. We knew he passed out in the locker room. All you can do is just say a little prayer at that point, and hopefully he’s doing OK.”

UPDATE, 3:15 p.m. PT: Here’s a note from an Angels spokesman …

Jerome Williams, hospitalized following his start last night against San Francisco,  is resting comfortably at UCI Medical Center where he has undergone a variety of tests.  It is likely he will be released later this afternoon and will return to UCI for further testing tomorrow.  He will not be present at the ballpark this evening

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails
