The 32-year-old outfielder passed a physical today securing the deal.

Willingham spent last season with the Oakland Athletics, hitting .262/.371/.475 with 29 home runs and 98 RBI. This signing will add more power to the Twins line up after they traded Delmon Young to the Detroit Tigers last season.  Willingham may also replace Michael Cuddyer in the right field.
