A strange little item from Jon Heyman.
The Orioles gave no official reason Sunday for why he was placed on the restricted list, but Duquette to CBSSports.com confirmed Willis left the team without permission following a difference of opinion about whether he should start or reliever. "He just left,'' said Duquette when confronted with the information from other sources.If he were a Sox reliever, he'd have given up a few home runs on the way out.
Duquette said he is hopeful Willis returns soon because the team believes he can be a successful reliever.
