Dontrelle Willis signed a minor league contract with the Giants in January and was officially added to the roster at Triple-A Fresno on April 12. But the veteran left-hander didn’t even last a week there.
According to Jeff Todd of MLB Trade Rumors, the official transactions page for the Pacific Coast League is showing that Willis was officially released sometime Wednesday. Willis had made just two relief appearances for Fresno and apparently suffered a serious arm injury earlier this week.
The 32-year-old has not pitched in a major league game since 2011, when he had a 5.00 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 75 2/3 innings with the Reds. He won Rookie of the Year honors in 2003 with the Marlins.
