Dontrelle Willis signed with the Milwaukee Brewers in January with hopes of earning a spot in the Brewers bullpen. He never did take the mound in a game this spring and is planning to retire.
Willis was scheduled to pitch in a game for the Brewers late last week but was scratched when he woke up with a stiff neck.
Willis won a World Series ring with the Florida Marlins in his 2003 rookie season. He was also named the NL Rookie of the Year and appeared in a pair of All-Star games in his career.
He finishes with a career 72-69 record and a 4.17 ERA in 205 career games with four different teams.
