The Minnesota Twins have struggled plenty this season and, unfortunately, it doesn't look like that streak is going to end anytime soon. The team will play Jered Weaver again on Monday night without slugger Josh Willingham -- a bad omen considering Weaver threw a no-hitter against Minnesota last week.
Willingham apparently caught the flu, according to various media reports, which is why he's found himself on the bench. There's a possibility, though, that he could find himself inserted into the lineup later in the game if the right situation arises.
Willingham has a flu bug. Might be available off the bench if he starts feeling better.— JoeChristensen (@JoeCStrib) May 7, 2012
Considering there's a possibility he plays Monday night, this isn't terrible news -- but it isn't good, either, considering the havoc Weaver caused last week.
