Dontrelle Willis anyone?

Ok, so I know I've posted a "Freddy Garcia Watch" as well as the possible availability of Rangers' outfielder Andruw Jones to gauge if any of you fans might be the least bit interested in either of those guys.

Well, I've got another one to throw out about Tigers' left-hander, and former Florida Marlin, Dontrelle Willis? Jayson Stark's Spring Rumblings from last Thursday talks about the possiblity that the Tigers may ask Willis to take an assignment to their Triple-A squad. Only problem there is, it's not likely that Willis will take such an assignment.

Since Willis came out as one of the young phenoms a few years ago, Willis just hasn't been the same and the contract the Tigers gave him as a free agent, hasn't panned out either.

One scout, that has watched a lot of the Tigers, and Willis, said, "I don't think he's in their rotation mix at all. When Willis sacrifices stuff for command, he can still throw strikes. But when he gets in favorable counts and has the leeway to add a little more stuff."

Interest anyone....anyone?
