Williams was removed from the game with a strained rotator cuff. He allowed five runs and seven hits and did not retire any of the four batters he faced in the third.
Williams had been on the DL because he sprained his left ankle while swinging during an at-bat in his last start, April 28 against the New York Mets. He allowed one run in six innings during a rehab start Thursday for Triple-A Columbus.
Williams was 0-4 with a 6.11 ERA in five starts entering Tuesday.
To make room for Williams, the Nationals optioned outfielder Kory Casto to Columbus on Monday. Casto batted .140 in 54 at-bats with the big league club.
``I just want him to play every day,'' manager Manny Acta said.
