Latest Update Morneau is placed on the 15-day disabled list Mon Jul, 21, 04:45 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.
Not the best way to start the second half after such a strong first half, but injuries are still par for the course with Morneau. The neck issue didn't seem to be too serious, but the Rockies will play it safe and DL him for the time being. The move will be retroactive to the 13th, the last game in which he appeared.Analyst: Howard Bender
Morneau continues to deal with neck stiffness and will miss his third-straight game Sunday because of it. He's still considered day-to-day and should be back in the lineup soon, but for now, Charlie Culberson will continue to get the work at first base.Analyst: Howard Bender
Morneau has missed his past two games with a stiff neck, but the injury does not seem to serious. If he's not back by Sunday, it shouldn't be long before the veteran returns. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Well, at least we're not missing a home game for Morneau. That's when it really hurts. Hopefully this is just a minor issue and can be resolved within a couple of days, but in the meantime, Charlie Culberson will fill in at first base for the Rockies.Analyst: Howard Bender
