"It's feeling a lot better," Willingham said. "It's a little point-tender, so once that goes away I can hit. As soon as that tenderness goes away, I'll start swinging."
Willingham originally injured his wrist on April 6, when he was hit by a fastball on the wrist by Indians starter Justin Masterson. Willingham was hitting .294/.435/.353 with a double and an RBI in six games before the injury.
