Rumor: Brewers Sign MLB Veteran Willis to MiLB Deal
ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick tweeted this a few minutes ago…

Willis, 33, hasn’t pitched in the big leagues since 2011 as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, though he has spent time in the minor leagues of the Orioles, Angels, and Giants over the past three years. He infamously lost his control at a relatively young age after being dynamic and electric early in his career with the Florida Marlins.
This brings the group of Brewers non-roster invitees up to six when camp opens in February.
