Leyland: Dontrelle Willis looks good

Feb 26, 2010, 4:03 PM EDT

A tweet from Tigers beat writer Jason Beck:


Leyland on
Dontrelle today: “Very, very impressed. Nice, smooth delivery. Good
command overall. Very good. I’m very happy with what I saw.”

Early spring training bullpen sessions are notoriously poor indicators of future performance, but if Willis can pitch a lick this year it would be wonderful news. For Willis, the Tigers and everyone else.

    I’m not sure this is as good an indicator as it seems. Dontrelle’s delivery always seemed awkward to me, which was probably a key to his success.
    Hopefully I’m wrong though. I’d love for Willis to refind himself and just enjoy the game

    A great kid who was a joy to watch down here. I’ve got my fingers crossed for him, webbing and all.
