The Tigers sent struggling Dontrelle Willis down to Class A on Tuesday, hoping the former star lefty can find his control.

Detroit optioned Willis to Lakeland of the Florida State League - and home to the Tigers' spring training camp - a day after he matched a career high by giving eight earned runs on five walks and three hits in 1 1-3 innings against Cleveland.

Willis (0-1) has walked 21 batters in 11 1-3 innings. The 8-2 loss to the Indians came in his second start since going on the disabled list with a hyperextended right knee.

Detroit signed Willis to a $29 million, three-year deal after getting him in a trade last winter with the Florida Marlins.

Could he have a case of Steve Blass disease? That would be terrible.

Maybe.

But, the consensus on ESPN2 today was that he is simply too fat, and he simply cannot get to his correct release point.

Now, thinking about Johhny Sain and Mickey Lolich, I'm not sure how important that is.

But then I think of Jimmy "Weiner-boy" Anderson...
