Dontrelle Willis Designated For Assignment, Norberto Recalled From Reno

Remember way back (June 5) when Dontrelle pitched his first game for the D-backs? He pitched six shutout innings and even scored the game-winning run. It's all been downhill since then.

22.1 innings over five starts and one bullpen outing have yielded a 6.85 ERA and a ridiculous 10.9 walks per nine innings. He was moved to the bullpen to face lefties just a few days ago, but I guess the D-backs have seen enough to let him go.

Shame, too. Willis is a great personality in the game and, at one time, one of the brightest young pitching studs. Here's hoping that he can find a way to resurrect his career.

More on Norberto from the Diamondbacks web site:

The 23-year-old posted strong numbers for the Aces, going 3-0 with four saves and a 3.07 ERA. Noberto began the season with Arizona, but struggled to an ERA of 9.00 before being optioned to Triple-A in late April.

Chris Young Selected To All-Star Team

Not to take anything from CY, who's having a nice year and certainly in comparison to his dismal season last summer, but this is one of those cases where someone has to represent the Diamondbacks and Young is the best choice. That doesn't make him an All-Star caliber player, but that's the rules of the game.

Young is averaging .264 at the plate and leads the team with 57 RBIs. He's been a steady hand in the field and has now secured the lead off position in Kirk Gibson's lineup.

Congratulations to Chris on his fine season.
