Dontrelle Willis rejoining Tigers' rotation

CHICAGO -- Dontrelle Willis will rejoin the Detroit Tigers' rotation with a start on Wednesday at Minnesota against the Twins. Tigers manager Jim Leyland made the announcement here before tonight's game, adding that Zach Miner will return to the bullpen after starting the first month of the season.

"This is not experimental and it's not developmental," Leyland said. "This is the big leagues. He's going to the rotation and we expect everybody there to help us win games. The expectations are no higher on him than anyone else."

Willis had been placed on the disabled list March 29 with anxiety disorder, and had a good outing Thursday night on his rehabilitation assignment with the Toledo Mud Hens, allowing two runs in 7 2/3 innings with five hits and four walks allowed. He had a 3.55 ERA in two outings with Toledo.

"That would be a big plus to have a left-handed starter in the rotation and I am pulling for him," Leyland said. "He's been in some situations that he's busted his (butt) to get through. He's done everything we've asked him to. Now, we're hoping it works out."

Willis has yet to win a game for the Tigers since being obtained prior to the 2008 season from the Florida Marlins, and has had a variety of injuries, control problems and the anxiety disorder to overcome.

I think he will be able to do a little better. Not Cy Young stuff, but it will be better than Miner I'm hoping. (Sorry bobrob)
