The Minnesota Twins and the Cleveland Indians have made it through four innings so far in today’s match up, but the Twins lost outfielder Josh Willingham.
Willingham was hit in the left wrist by a pitch during an at-bat and ended up leaving the game to undergo X-rays.

Now according to Phil Miller on Twitter, the X-rays on Willingham’s wrist came back negative and he’ll be listed as day-to-day.

Which is great news for not only Willingham himself, but for the franchise and fan base. So far through five games, the 35 year old outfielder has seen over 15 at-bats with one RBI under his belt ontop of a batting line of .294/.409/.353.
He finished last year with 14 home runs, 48 RBI’s off a .208/.342/.368 batting line with the Twins.
