Trevor Williams Leaves Thursday’s Game Early with Right Side Discomfort

Trevor Williams has been the most consistent starting pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates during an injury-filled season. He threw at least six innings in each of his first eight starts this year, but that streak ended Thursday night against the San Diego Padres when he walked off the mound with the trainer in the fourth inning after an apparent side injury. He was replaced by Francisco Liriano.

When the Pirates give an update after he has been checked out, we will post it here.

UPDATE: The Pirates say that Williams had right side discomfort and he is currently being treated by the medical staff.
