Josh Willingham LF/DH MIN 11 Hrs

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Mariners are talking to the Twins about Josh Willingham.

It's not surprising, as the M's have been searching for a right-handed bat and Willingham is one of the better ones available. At this point, it's not clear how far along the talks are between the two clubs. Willingham entered play Tuesday batting just .219/.361/.421, but he's slugged 10 homers over 57 games.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees are showing interest in Josh Willingham.

They're also considering Marlon Byrd and Alex Rios, but Willingham appears to be at the top of their list in part because he's a free agent after this season. Willingham is batting .215 10 homers in only 56 games this season, as he missed 41 contests with a fractured wrist. The 35-year-old has played in pitchers parks his entire career, so a move to Yankee Stadium would be a nice boost to his fantasy value.
