Willis back with the Tigers

Posted by DuckSnort 6 days ago (
Dontrelle Willis is ready to put the past behind him. The Detroit left-hander rejoined his teammates Friday for the first time since going on the disabled list because of anxiety disorder in spring training. Willis is scheduled to start for the Tigers in Minnesota on Wednesday. "I know I've been terrible, but that was yesterday," Willis, who struggled last season in his first year with the Tigers. "Today is a new day and that's the one thing we've emphasized." Willis threw a bullpen session at Progressive Field Friday afternoon. Upon entering the clubhouse he hugged his teammates and joked with several players. Manager Jim Leyland thinks it's time to find out what Willis can do in the big leagues. Willis, along with first baseman Miguel Cabrera, was acquired from the Marlins on Dec. 5, 2007. Willis is 68-56 with a 3.91 ERA in his major league career.
