The Baltimore Orioles have signed Dontrelle Willis to a minor league contract, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports. Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun notes that Willis will earn $700k while in the Majors.
Last week the Philllies released Dontrelle Willis who they had signed to a $1mm deal back in December. Willis was attempting to earn a spot in the Philly bullpen but allowed five runs in 2 2/3 innings this spring and had a 16.88 ERA.
The Rockies kicked the tires around on Willis this weekend but decided against signing him.
Willis did have some success last season as he held left-handers to a .127 average in 55 at-bats.
