The Philadelphia Phillies have signed 29-year old lefty starting pitcher Dontrelle Willis to a 1-year deal. Willis pitched in 13 games (all starts) for the Reds last year and he was 1-6 with a 5.00 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP. The Phillies are looking to use Willis out of the bullpen as a lefty specialist and it might work out pretty good. Lefty batters only hit .127 with a .369 OPS against Willis last year. Willis has now pitched in 205 games (202 starts) in his first 9 years in the majors and he is 72-69 with a 4.17 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.
