|Josh Willingham not ready to swing a bat |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/18/14) Twins outfielder Josh Willingham lifted some weights on Friday, but has not been cleared to start swinging, manager Ron Gardenhire told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Willingham won't be able to swing a bat until the small fracture in his wrist is fully healed.
Willingham hit .294/.435/.353 with three runs and one RBI in 17 at-bats before the injury. He remains without a timetable.

(4/13/14) Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said outfielder Josh Willingham underwent another MRI and CT scan, which revealed a small fracture of a bone in his wrist. Antony still hopes Willingham will spend just 15 days on the disabled list.
Antony said it's a very uncommon injury for a baseball player, and Willingham will consult with a hand specialist.

(4/12/14) The Twins placed outfielder Josh Willingham on the 15-day disabled list Saturday (retroactive April 7) with a left wrist contusion.
Willingham suffered the injury while being hit by a pitch in the first inning of Sunday's game against the Indians. He has hit .294/.435/.353 with three runs and one RBI in 17 at-bats.
|Josh Willingham expected to be placed on DL |

(4/11/14) Twins outfielder Josh Willingham will be placed on the 15-day disabled list following Friday's game against Kansas City, according to 1500 AM ESPN Radio in Minneapolis. Willingham has been sidelined since Sunday with a wrist injury. The team will recall Michael Tonkin to replace his spot on the roster.
|Josh Willingham remains out Friday; DL possible |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/11/14) Twins outfielder Josh Willingham is not in the lineup for the Friday night game against Kansas City. He has been sidelined with a wrist injury that has prevented him from playing since Sunday.
Ron Gardenhire said he still considers Willingham day-to-day with the injury, but a stint on the disabled list is possible if it lingers through the weekend.
|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.
