Latest Update Justin Morneau is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Wednesday Wed Aug, 20, 04:15 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.
On top of the stiff neck which has been bothering him now for a few days, he's a lefty bat ona day the Rockies are stacking their righties. Matt McBride will handle the work at first base on Wednesday while Morneau gets some much-needed rest.Analyst: Howard Bender
Odds are he will play game two, but fantasy players with good bench options should probably replace him. Morneau definitely should not be in any daily game lineups.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Morneau has battled some neck issues in the second half, but this time it doesn't seem to be serious. If he doesn't return to the field tomorrow, he should be back soon after. Analyst: Ben Diamond
