Devin Williams made his major league debut on Wednesday, six years after he was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers.
Williams pitched 1 2/3 innings of relief for the Brewers in their 8-3 road victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He allowed three hits and one walk with three strikeouts.
The 6-foot-3 right-hander was a second-round draft pick by the Brewers in 2013.
Williams spent about a week with the San Antonio Missions before moving up to the majors. He appeared in a total of three games for the Missions. He did not allow a run in 3 2/3 innings with two hits, one walk and six strikeouts.
Williams made only one appearance at Wolff Stadium. He pitched 1 2/3 innings to finish the Missions’ 3-2 loss to the Sacramento River Cats on Aug. 1. Williams retired all five batters he faced and struck out three. He hit 100 MPH on the stadium radar.
The 24-year-old spent most of this season with the Double-A Biloxi Shuckers. He appeared in 31 games and had a 2.36 ERA.
