Minnesota Twins OF Josh Willingham (wrist) may head to the disabled list if his wrist issue lingers through this weekend, according to bench coach and acting manager Terry Steinbach.
Fantasy Tip: This would bode well for Jason Kubel and Chris Colabello remaining in the lineup. Both are worth an add in deep mixed leagues. Kubel, being a LHB, might have more shelf life in this instance.

With Minnesota Twins OF Jason Kubel making the team, and OF Josh Willingham struggling in left field during the spring, Kubel might get more time in the outfield. "We know Willy's not going to be all over in left," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "(OF Oswaldo Arcia) is actually moving really well in right. I'm happy with that. And (OF Aaron Hicks) is probably going to be in center. He's running the ball down pretty good. With our pitching, we have to catch the ball."

Minnesota Twins OF Jason Kubel has made the club, and he'll receive a $2 million base salary this season. He's expected to see time at designated hitter and as a backup outfielder this season. Kubel has a slash line of .212/.333/.333 with a home run and a double in 13 spring contests.
Fantasy Tip: Kubel could come into consideration in AL leagues if you're scraping the barrel for outfield depth due to injuries or poor performance.

I'm hoping he's a big part of this ballclub," manager Ron Gardenhire said.

The Minnesota Twins agreed to an undisclosed deal with OF/1B Jason Kubel (Indians).
Fantasy Tip: Kubel had an awful 2013, but is a year removed from hitting 30 bombs in Arizona. However, his last season in Target Field saw his power numbers falter. Kubel is probably a fantasy afterthought in 2014.
