Really only August was a bad month for Willis and he bounced back strong in September.
2-1 with a 2.94 ERA in July
1-3 with a 6.92 ERA in August
3-1 with a 2.89 ERA in September
There seems to be an incorrect perception that Dontrelle struggled the entire 2nd half of the year as hitters figured him out. Thats not the case. He went through a rough stretch but battled through and I think that bodes very well for him.
There are definitely some things you could be concerned about, but overall I think the positives outweigh the negatives and Willis should be regarded as a talented young pitcher on his way to the top.
