News: Willingham went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run, and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Royals. Impact: He took Danny Duffy deep for his 11th home run in the second inning to get the Twins on the board and swiped his first base of the season in the fourth inning on a double steal. Willingham has a nice little five-game hitting streak going on right now in which he's gone 6-for-14 with two home runs, four runs scored, and three RBI. The 35-year-old outfielder is batting just .223, but he's got a respectable .366 on-base percentage to go along with 11 home runs, 31 runs scored, and 31 RBI in 188 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: Willingham hit his 10th homer of the year and his second in four games in Friday's 9-5 loss to the White Sox. Impact: Willingham remains a fantasy bust, batting .213 and playing in only 55 games thus far.(STATS, 5:56pm)

News: Willingham was 0 for 4 in Thursday's loss to the White Sox. Impact: Willingham is hitting .207 after hitting .208 a year ago. That's lame.(STATS, 4:20pm)

News: Willingham is out of the lineup Wednesday vs. the Indians, MLB.com reports. Impact: Manager Ron Gardenhire will give the veteran Willingham some rest as the Twins and Indians meet up at 12:10 p.m. local time. Sam Fuld will cover left field and Kendrys Morales will handle DH duties while Willingham sits. The 35-year-old could generate some interest at the trade deadline, but his mediocre numbers this season (.212 batting average, nine homers and 28 RBI in 53 games) suggests the Twins may only receive a mediocre return.(RotoWire, )

News: Willingham went 2-for-3 with a home run Monday in a win over the Indians. Impact: Willingham scored twice and drew a walk, but the big story was his eighth-inning, go-ahead home run. After the game, the veteran outfielder said he's feeling better at the plate, and he now has hits in four of his last five games. Willingham is slashing .217/.365/.422 with nine long balls on the year.(RotoWire, )

News: Willingham is out of the lineup Saturday versus the Rays, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

In his place, Kendrys Morales is handling DH and batting cleanup.(RotoWire, )
