Willingham hit a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift Minnesota to a 4-3 victory over the visiting Cleveland Indians. His ninth homer of the season was also his second hit of the game, and it came at a...

Minnesota Twins trade rumors: Josh Willingham edition

Josh Willingham From a four-game sweep to a five-game losing streak, the Minnesota Twins are desperate to find solid traction that will propel them to the top of the AL Central Division. But, with more downs than ups this season, the Twins should probably start setting the goal now to post a record that will not put them in dead last like they have been in the last three seasons...

One Man’s Trash: Ready And Willingham

I will admit I'm a bit of an ageist when it comes to my fantasy baseball teams. I'll gravitate towards the Christian Yelichs and steer clear of the Michael Cuddyers. So when Josh Willingham (+67%) came off of the disabled list, balloons didn't fall from my living room ceiling. Fact is, though, he's a solid player and should be a good option moving forward for fantasy owners in need...

Minnesota Twins: Injuries affect lineup and standings

Target Field The last two weeks have begun to take a toll on the Minnesota Twins, particularly due to injuries in the roster. In the American League Central Division, first place has been predominantly in the Detroit Tigers’ favor. The closest the Twins have come this year to holding that position was April 18, when they were just half of a game out behind Detroit and the Kansas...

Minnesota Twins: When will Willingham return?

Josh Willingham For most of the season, the Minnesota Twins have had to move forward without outfielder Josh Willingham. The question that remains is: when will he return to the lineup? In a game against the Cleveland Indians on April 6, Willingham was hit on the wrist by a fastball from starter Justin Masterson. The next day, Willingham was put on the 15-day disabled list with a...

Twins Friday: Willingham sent to DL

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins were hopeful that left fielder Josh Willingham could avoid the disabled list after getting hit in the hand with a pitch on Sunday. But Willingham wasn't making the progress he'd hoped after taking swings in the cage, so he will indeed be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hand contusion, assistant general manager Rob Antony said Friday.

Willingham poised for rebound season with Twins

Josh Willingham insists he is willing and able to serve as designated hitter for the Minnesota Twins, if that's what he's asked to do. But the veteran slugger much prefers playing left field rather to fidgeting on the bench in between at-bats. Especially now that his balky left knee has fully healed since arthroscopic surgery last July. ''I like playing left field. I think you...
