Dontrelle Willis Joins Dodgers Staff, Roasts Himself In The Process

The Los Angeles Dodgers have hired Dontrelle Willis as a special assistant, the former MLB player announced on social media Sunday.

Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts confirmed Willis is now part of the Dodgers front office, but he did not have any specifics to provide.

It seems like Wills doesn’t have any info on the role either.

In his social media announcement, the former Detroit Tigers and Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher said he was thankful for the opportunity but that he wasn’t quite clear on the job description.

“Special assistant sounds dope even tho i don’t know what it means,” he said in the tweet.

Willis won the National League Rookie of the Year in 2003 and finished second in Cy Young Award voting in 2005, True Blue LA reports.

Although his playing career ended before he turned 30, he had a great start with the Marlins and spent his last season in the league playing for the Cincinnati Reds.

Willis has spent the last few seasons covering the MLB with FOX Sports.
