Cubs Sign Dontrelle Willis To Minor-League Deal

Dontrelle Willis’ retirement is over — and the left-hander is trying to resurrect his career where it started, with the Cubs. CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman reports Willis has signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs.

Although Willis did not receive an invite to big-league camp, he will get chances in big-league camp if he is throwing well, according to Heyman.

Willis, who will celebrate his 31st birthday on Jan. 12, spent last season with the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk, Va., going 0-3 with an 8.53 ERA in four games and three starts before announcing his retirement in July. Heyman reports Willis decided to un-retire after the 2012 season ended.
