The Minnesota Twins officially introduced Josh Willingham as their new right fielder today. Willingham will provided much needed pop in the Twin lineup, particularly now that Michael Cuddyer signed with Colorado.
Here's a look at Willingham's in play slugging percentage heat map over the last three years:
Willingham is a dead pull hitter. As such, he is susceptible to outside pitches.
Over the last three years, Willingham has hit just .204 on outside pitches, with a .311 SLG. However, on pitches middle-in he's hit .292 with a .588 SLG, for a .412 wOBA since 2009, putting him in the top 3% of the league. Take the good with the bad, Twins fans.
