A Bay Area native, Dontrelle exploded onto the baseball scene in 2003 by defeating the Yankees in the World Series and winning the ML Rookie of the Year award. Dontrelle led the Major Leagues in wins (22), shutouts (5) and finished second in the Cy Young Award voting in 2005.
A two-time All-Star, Dontrelle was traded to the Detroit Tigers and signed a three-year extension shortly thereafter. After two injury-plagued seasons, Willis was recalled to the Major Leagues in 2011, this time as a member of the Cincinnati Reds.

It's hard to express exactly how important Sosnick Cobbe has been to my career. Matt and Paul are like family to me. They treated me the exact same way when I was an 8th round pick as they do now that I am in the Big Leagues. I am proud to tell people that I'm represented by Sosnick Cobbe Sports.
