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.

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.
