• Twins reinstate Willingham, send Doumit to DL

    The Minnesota Twins announce today they have officially reinstated outfielder Josh Willingham and have placed catcher Ryan Doumit on the seven-day disabled list.

    Willingham, who was hitting a career low of .224/.356/.398 in 298 plate appearances when he opted to have his knee scoped on July 3, had been rehabbing in Rochester. In three games, he amassed eleven plate appearances and just one hit. That one hit, however, was a prodigious home run in Durham that cleared the famous bull in left field (the one which if a batter hits on the fly, wins a free steak).

    Doumit, meanwhile, had left Wednesday nightís game in Kansas City with concussion-like symptoms which stemmed from a foul tip he took to the mask while catching against the Astros. On the flight to Kansas City, Doumit felt nauseous and then later on during the game on Wednesday where he was lifted for Chris Herrmann.
