Player Notes
A CT scan has revealed a hairline fracture in Josh Willingham's left wrist.

Advice: Willingham does not need surgery but will visit with some hand specialists. Even with a minor fracture, the Twins are hopeful that the outfielder will be ready to go once his 15 days are up. Willingham is eligible to return on April 22.

Twins placed OF Josh Willingham on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 7, with a left wrist contusion.

Advice: With the backdating of the DL stint, he'll be eligible to return next week if he's improved enough by then. Michael Tonkin was recalled in a corresponding move to add depth to the Twins bullpen.

Sun, Apr 13 Rotoworld
The Twins announced Friday that they'll place Josh Willingham on the disabled list on Saturday with a left wrist injury.

Advice: Reliever Michael Tonkin will be recalled to take his spot on the active roster. The move doesn't come as a surprise as the veteran outfielder has been slow to progress since he exited Sunday's game after taking a pitch off of the wrist. He will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the severity of the injury since he's still experiencing irritation.

Fri, Apr 11 Rotoworld
Josh Willingham (wrist) reported improvement after hitting in the batting cage Wednesday.

Advice: The update comes less than an hour after the Twins said Willingham had yet to swing a bat yet, but obviously he is feeling better. While the club is expected to lose Oswaldo Arcia to the DL with a wrist injury of his own, it sounds like "Hammer" is close to returning to action.

Thu, Apr 10 Rotoworld
Josh Willingham (wrist) has yet to swing a bat.

Advice: Willingham hasn't played since exiting Sunday's game after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch. The outfielder is hoping to avoid the disabled list, but the Twins don't want to play a man short so he's going to need to show progress soon. Oswaldo Arcia is dealing with a wrist injury of his own but is expected back soon.

Josh Willingham (wrist) remained out of the Twins' lineup Wednesday.

Advice: Willingham hasn't played since exiting Sunday's game after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch. He was hoping to give it a go Wednesday, but obviously he's not feeling up to it just yet. The Twins are going with Jason Kubel in left field and Chris Colabello at DH.

Wed, Apr 9 Rotoworld
Josh Willingham (wrist) is hoping to return to the lineup Wednesday.

Advice: Willingham sat out Monday, one day after leaving a game when he was hit on the left wrist with the pitch. The Twins are off Tuesday, so he'll get at least two days off, but it's not a given that he'll be ready Wednesday. "We'll find out when I pick up a bat," Willingham said. "Maybe Wednesday."

Wed, Apr 9 Rotoworld
Josh Willingham is not expected to need a stint on the 15-day disabled list after being hit in the left wrist with a pitch.

Advice: Willingham was hit by a Justin Masterson fastball on Sunday, but did not suffer a fracture. Good news for the Twins, as Willingham is a good source of power when he is healthy.
