LOS ANGELES -- Waipahu High Alum Jerome Williams has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Angels.
The move came after doctors diagnosed Williams with a mix of asthma and anxiety--a condition which led to him being taken to the hospital Monday night.
"I didn't feel any shortness of breath while I was pitching. I felt normal," he said Wednesday at his locker. "It was probably a (combination) of asthma and anxiety. I felt dizzy and I just passed out. That's all I remember. It came out of nowhere. It was real scary. They told me a lot of things at the hospital, but I couldn't remember anything because I really couldn't breathe."
"We're just trying to figure what's going on and, take it day by day and see what's going to happen," Williams added. "Hopefully later we'll find out more. I just took a test today, and I'm taking more tests tomorrow and the next day. The last time I had an asthma attack was probably when I was like 4 or 5 years old. Other than that, I'd never had one. I hope it never happens again."
