In his latest attempt at a comeback, Chicago Cubs pitcher Dontrelle Willis lasted just seven pitches in a cactus league game on Monday. The left hander made an unscheduled appearance in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers and exited the game after just seven pitches, aided off the field with a trainer.

Willis, the runner up for the 2005 NL Cy Young Award was seen pointing to his shoulder. This is his latest, and most likely his last attempt at a comeback. The 31-year old last pitched in the majors with the Cincinnati Reds posting a 1-5 record with a 5.00 ERA during 13 starts.

The lefty had announced his retirement last year after spending some time with the Baltimore Orioles AAA team and singed a minor league contract with the Cubs in January. He walked the first batter he faced on Monday and then threw one pitch to the second batter before leaving the game.
