The Twins signed outfielder Josh Willingham to a three year, $21 million deal. Of course this came in light of Michael Cuddyer signing with the Rockies and he was paid $30.5 million so there’s some savings there.
Willingham had a career for the Athletics last year. He belted 29 home runs and drove in 98. His strikeouts were up but he also walked 56 times. This is a guy who’s had an OPS+ of 115 or more in the past six seasons. Durability is a concern though and he’s never played more then 145 games and the past four seasons, he’s played in 136, 114, 133 and 102. When he’s healthy, he’s good but there’s always the chance he’s going to be out of the lineup for a few weeks at a time during the season.
