The Angels have signed left-hander Dontrelle Willis, the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League have announced. I assume it is a minor league contract.
“Dontrelle has been outstanding on the mound this season,” said Ducks president and GM Michael Pfaff in a statement. "We wish him the best of luck with the Angels organization.”
Willis, 31, last pitched in the big leagues with the Reds in 2011. The 2003 NL Rookie of the Year made four appearances in Triple-A with the Orioles last year before announcing his retirement. He attempted a comeback with the Cubs in spring training before winding up in indy ball.
