PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies on Sunday claimed right-hander Jerome Williams off waivers from the Rangers.

Williams, 32, went 2-5 with a 6.71 ERA in 28 games this season with Houston and Texas. He is 44-52 with a 4.51 ERA in nine seasons with the Giants, Cubs, Nationals, Angels, Astros and Rangers.

The Phillies designed right-hander Sean O'Sullivan for assignment to make room for Williams on the 25-man roster. O'Sullivan had been scheduled to start Tuesday against the Angels in Anaheim. Williams presumably will take his place in the rotation, although it is unclear if he will start Tuesday.
