Latest Update Justin Morneau will go to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday Sun Jul, 27, 01:01 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.
Justin Morneau was placed on the 15 day DL with a stiff neck. On Saturday, he took his first batting practice since that injury. Look for him to be back in the lineup this week, hopefully by Tuesday.Analyst: Joshua Balay
Morneau is eligible to come off the DL on Tuesday, but given that Saturday was his first time taking BP, it is unclear as to whether or not he'll be ready. The Rockies will evaluate him daily, so we should get official word soon enough.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
