Williams to throw simulated game on road trip
ANAHEIM -- Starter Jerome Williams, who was in the hospital after passing out from a shortness of breath following his start against the Giants on Monday, will throw a three-inning, simulated game in the bullpen during the Angels' trip to Baltimore this week.

He was placed on the DL on Tuesday after what he said might have been an overreaction to an asthma attack and won't be able to return until July 4. Manager Mike Scioscia said the team is waiting for direction from the team's medical staff, as well as from Williams, to see how to progress with the righty.

In 13 outings (12 starts) this season, Williams has a 4.46 ERA. While he's out, Sunday's starter Garrett Richards has taken his spot in the rotation.
