Dontrelle Willis has completed the Lakeland portion of his program and will start for Toledo on Friday night. Willis worked deep into his last 2 games and only allowed 2 walks.
Dombrowski said the move was made because Tigers minor league pitching coordinator Jon Matlack, minor league performance enhancement instructor Brian Peterson and Lakeland pitching coach Joe Coleman agreed he was ready.
I thought it’s interesting that the Tigers have a performance enhancement instructor, or in other words a roving head coach. I like it.
Willis will take Eddie Bonine’s spot in the rotation as Bonine is experiencing dreaded shoulder problems.
