Latest Update Morneau (upper body) is back in the Rockies' lineup Monday Mon Sep, 15, 05:34 PM
Has a sweet swing with the ability to hit for both monster power and average. Turns up his game with runners in scoring position. Has improved his defense at first base due to a lot of hard work.
Flaws: : Injuries have become a growing concern here. Struggles a little against tough southpaws. Isn't completely comfortable in making all the plays at first base and lacks a little range. Is a slow runner.
The veteran first baseman has had a solid season, but has also sat out a good amount of games dealing with different injuries. Feel free to start him in fantasy leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Morneau sat out Saturday's game with a lat issue, but shouldn't e out for very long. He'll like be back in the lineup by Tuesday at the latest. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Morneau left Friday night's game with intercostal soreness, and will sit out on Saturday. The Cardinals have lefty Marco Gonzalez lined up to pitch on Sunday, so Morneau may be on the bench for the balance of the weekend.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Morneau was going to give up some of his PT to Michael Cuddyer, and this injury just means that he will not be seeing the field a lot the rest of the season, as the Rockies will want to preserve their first baseman as much as possible.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
