The Minnesota outfielder injured his shoulder reaching for an Erik Chavez home run Monday night.

Minnesota Twins left fielder Josh Willingham will undergo an MRI on his left shoulder Tuesday after slamming into the outfield fence Monday night while reaching for what ended up being a solo home run, per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Willingham appeared to be in no visible pain after the seventh-inning play but was replaced in left field by Chris Herrmann the following inning. The injury is not thought to be anything serious -- Willingham is listed as day-to-day -- but the team wants to be sure there is no damage to the shoulder.

The 33-year-old Willingham has been one of the Twins' most reliable bats in his first season with the club. The Hammer is batting .260/.366/.524 with a career-high 35 home runs and 110 RBI in 145 games on the season.
