Former All-Star Dontrelle Willis is attempting to make a comeback with the Brewers, agreeing to a Minor League deal with an invitation to Major League Spring Training, according to ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick.
Willis, now 33, has not pitched in the big leagues since 2011 with the Reds. Between 2009 and 2011, he played for the Tigers, D-backs and Reds but has also since been in the Phillies, Orioles, Cubs, Angels and Giants organizations.
An All-Star in 2003 -— when he won the National League Rookie of the Year with the Marlins -— and 2005, Willis owns a 72-69 career record with a 4.17 ERA.
