Reggie Willits intends to play in 2012 and has discussed opportunities with MLB teams, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors.
Willits, 30, appeared in 20 games with the Angels this season and went just 1-for-22. He can play all three outfield positions and knows how to work the count, but he'll likely have to accept a minor league deal. Fri, Dec 16, 2011 08:19:00 PM

Date:

Angels sent OF Reggie Willits outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Willits batted an ugly .045/.192/.091 with one RBI across 22 games for the Angels earlier this season before being designated for assignment. He was a useful player back in 2007 during his rookie season with his speed and ability to draw walks, but Willits has done very little since.

Angels optioned OF Reggie Willits to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Willits has picked up just one hit in 22 at-bats in his stints with the big club this season. He's played very sparingly and will now get more regular work at Triple-A. This clears a roster spot for Howie Kendrick, who will be activated from the DL Saturday.

Angels optioned OF Reggie Willits to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Willits, who is 0-for-7 to begin the year, was cleared to make room for Alexi Amarista on the active roster. The move is a sign that the Angels believe Maicer Izturis will not require a stint on the disabled list.

Angels activated OF Reggie Willits from the 15-day disabled list.

Angels placed OF Reggie Willits on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with a left calf strain.

Willits has been sidelined since March 13, but recently began playing in some minor league games. Chris Pettit will take his place on the roster as the team's fifth outfielder, but Willits could be with the big club relatively soon.

Reggie Willits (calf) is scheduled to play in a minor league game Thursday.

Good news, although he is going to require a pinch-runner for his four at-bats. Willits is scheduled to run the bases on Friday and perhaps jump into games from there. He has been out since March 13 with a left calf strain and is still likely to begin the year on the disabled list.

Reggie Willits (calf) ran at full speed Tuesday and began running some curves on Wednesday.

Willits has been sidelined since March 13 with a left calf strain. He will play in some minor league games over the weekend, but is expected to begin the season on the disabled list. Chris Pettit will likely take his place on the roster, though neither player should be on your fantasy radar.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia hinted Monday that Randy Willits' strained calf muscle might force the outfielder onto the disabled list to start the season.

"He’s working against the clock," Scioscia said. Such a move could mean adding Chris Pettit to the Opening Day roster as a short-term pinch-hitter and defensive replacement. Neither player is fantasy relevant.
