Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee isn’t too pleased with left-hander relief pitcher Dontrelle Willis for not fully disclosing some soreness in his left arm.
Willis, who did tell Dubee he was sore, said he was able to pitch anyway. Willis went ahead and pitched, giving up four runs in 2/3 of an inning to the Houston Astros.
Willis told reporters after the game that he felt some fatigue in his arm during the 6th inning and may have to back off the next couple of days. He will have it checked out tomorrow.
Willis also went on to tell the reporters that, “I was horse sh*t out there today.”
Brutal honesty. At least Willis was finally honest after the game.
