Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a home run, five RBI, and two runs scored against the Phillies on Friday.
Morneau's hot start to the season continued on Sunday after smashing his fourth home run of the season while raising his batting average to .344 through his first 64 at-bats. His production was expected to increase moving from Target Field to the friendly confines of Coors Field, but no one would have guessed he would start out this hot. As long as he can stay off the trainer's table there is no reason his hot start can't continue. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
