Willingham Sidelined

The Twins have placed outfielder Josh Willingham on the 15-day disabled list and reinstated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the DL.  An MRI on Willingham Tuesday revealed a tear of his medial meniscus as well as a bone bruise in his left knee.  Hicks missed 19 games with a strained left hamstring.  The 23-year-old rookie went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the lineup last night.
