Indians | Passed on Josh Willingham

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 00:20:53 -0700

Although the Cleveland Indians are on the fringe of the playoff race, they passed on OF Josh Willingham when offered. The Indians offered Willingham a two-year contract in 2012 but he signed with the Minnesota Twins for three seasons.

Royals | Josh Willingham to split time at DH

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 16:09:02 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Josh Willingham will split time with OF Raul Ibanez at designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Willingham was acquired in order to give the Royals' lackluster offense a jolt. He'll probably have the edge in playing time over Ibanez, but it likely won't be enough to justify owning him in shallow mixed leagues.

Royals | Josh Willingham acquired

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 16:03:05 -0700

The Kansas City Royals acquired OF Josh Willingham from the Minnesota Twins Monday, Aug. 11, in exchange for P Jason Adam.

Fantasy Tip: Willingham is likely to serve as the designated hitter, but he could also see playing time at first base to spell Billy Butler. The Royals are looking to add some much-needed thump to their lineup. It doesn't change Willingham's value much, if at all.
