Dontrelle Willis Hurt After 7 Pitches Today
You have to feel for the guy. Willis, who is trying to make his latest comeback to the Majors with the Cubs, made his debut today. He walked the first batter he faced, threw seven pitches and then called the trainer out to the mound. Dodgers TV showed D-Train in the dugout during the pitching change and the concern seemed to be focused on his throwing shoulder, ugh. I say ugh not because I think he would be an integral part of the Cubs 2013 team or future, but because I feel for the guy. Tremendous success followed by humbling, and crippling injuries that have derailed his Major League career. Hopefully it’s precautionary, I think that was his last pitch as a Cub, maybe as a ballplayer, hope not. Once more information becomes available I’ll pass it along, I just can’t help but thing this is not going to end good, and that’s too bad.
