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.
