As our very own Sports Injury Alert correspondent Kerry Kauffman reported, Willingham has a small wrist fracture. He did not require surgery, but began treatment for it right away.
In late April of 2013 Willingham suffered a bone bruise on an unsuccessful slide against Texas and caused him to play two months on an aching left knee. His numbers were also throbbing and as a result he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on July 3 before rushing back to the lineup just 5 weeks later.
In 2013, In his final 40 plus games he hit for a .182 average with a combined OBP/SLUG of .633. Overall, he hit for career lows ending up with a .208 average with 14 home runs and just 48 runs batted in.
This season, Willingham has played just 6 games with a slash of .294/.435/.353 with 0 home runs and 1 run batted in 17 at bats.
Willingham will most likely be back with the Twins in less than 2 weeks unless more problems occur with his hand.
