Josh Willingham a no-go Monday
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Royals outfielder Josh Willingham, who has been the team's primary designated hitter since arriving from the Twins in a mid-August trade, was out of the lineup for a fourth straight game Monday against the White Sox because of a strained groin. Billy Butler once again started in his absence.

Josh Willingham sidelined by groin injury
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

After starting as the Royals' designated hitter in the their series opener against the Red Sox on Thursday, Josh Willingham sat out the next two games with a strained groin, and he was out of the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale.

Royals manager Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star that Willingham had experienced some improvement over the weekend but will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties when he returns. Willingham is day to day with the injury.
