Latest Update Josh Willingham has not yet made a retirement decision Thu Oct, 30, 05:31 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.
If Willingham is to sign with a major league team, he will probably wait until closer to spring training and see if he can get a one-year deal. He still has some gas left in the tank, but only in small doses as he just can't seem to stay healthy.Analyst: David Kerr
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
