|(9/15/14) Royals outfielder Josh Willingham, who has been the team's primary designated hitter since arriving from the Twins in a mid-August trade, was out of the lineup for a fourth straight game Monday against the White Sox because of a strained groin. Billy Butler once again started in his absence.

Josh Willingham sidelined by groin injury
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/14/14) After starting as the Royals' designated hitter in the their series opener against the Red Sox on Thursday, Josh Willingham sat out the next two games with a strained groin, and he was out of the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale.
Royals manager Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star that Willingham had experienced some improvement over the weekend but will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties when he returns. Willingham is day to day with the injury.
|After enjoying a career year in 2012, the 2013 season did not provide a soft landing for Josh Willingham. He was hampered by knee and wrist issues over much of the first half of the season, and knee surgery shelved him for all of July and part of August. When Willingham returned, he hit for little power while batting just .182 over the remainder of the season. Fantasy owners have come to expect Willingham to miss chunks of time due to injury, but had been a consistent producer throughout his career prior to last year. Perhaps it's time to lower our expectations for the 35-year-old outfielder, but given how much his production dropped off last season, he could wind up being an excellent late-round bargain in standard mixed leagues with a moderate rebound.
