Latest Update Josh Willingham is not in the Royals' starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Sep, 14, 10:46 AM
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.
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
Until he can prove he is healthy and shows consistently decent production, Willingham should stay on most waiver wires. Yost has not committed full DH responsibilities to him, so he should only be considered in very deep leagues where you can monitor when he is getting the nod at designated hitter.Analyst: Colby Conway
