Latest Update Josh Willingham said he has not made up his mind on retirement. Thu Sep, 25, 07:15 PM
Swings a powerful bat with above-average home-run ability. Is patient at the plate and will take his walks. When in the outfield, he boasts an accurate arm from left field.
Flaws: : When he gets his pitch he takes a huge cut, leading to too many strikeouts and a middling batting average. Is not an efficient base-runner. Is limited to left field. Can be injury-prone.
Willingham will turn 36 in February and had dealt with injuries over the past few seasons. If this is his final season Willingham would have played 11 major league seasons with five organizations. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
This is a move from manager Ned Yost to jam a few more lefites into the lineup to face right-hander Joe Kelly while keeping Lorenzo Cain active. Norichika Aoki will handle DH responsibilities while Cain moves to right and Jarrod Dyson plays center.Analyst: Howard Bender
Willingham had just recently missed time due to a sore rib cage, but now it appears as he will miss time to a groin strain. No word on the severity, but a DL trip could be imminent for the righty the Royals traded for in August. His stats are still unimpressive for the year, and should remain on waiver wires in your fantasy league.Analyst: Colby Conway
It has been a very disappointing season for Willingham, who keeps dealing with injury after injury. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
