Josh Willingham will be out of the lineup for the third straight game when the Twins play host to Detroit on Friday, Sept. 28, at Target Field. The left fielder could, in fact, be done for the season.

Willingham has a sprained ligament in his left shoulder, suffered while reaching for a home run ball in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Yankees. He tried swinging a bat on Friday afternoon.

"The pinching sensation is still there, and that was just sort of dry swinging," he said.

Willingham, 33, leads the Twins with a career-high 35 home runs and 110 RBIs.
