Willingham day to day with bruised left wrist

CLEVELAND -- Twins left fielder Josh Willingham left Sunday's game in the bottom of the second inning after being hit by a pitch on his left wrist in the first inning. He was taken for X-rays, which came back negative, and he's day to day with a bruised left wrist.

"He's sore but it's not broke," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said after the Twins beat the Indians, 10-7. "We'll figure it out tomorrow."

Willingham was plunked by Indians right-hander Justin Masterson on a 90-mph fastball with one out in the first, but remained in the game for the rest of the inning and was in left field for the bottom half of the frame.

But when the Twins took the field in the second inning, Jason Bartlett replaced Willingham in left field.

It marked Bartlett's second career appearance in left, as he also played one inning there against the White Sox on Thursday.
