Justin Morneau Injury: Return In A Week Possible

There's a chance that Justin Morneau might need to only miss the minimum 15 days for his left wrist injury. Morneau had his wrist looked at by the Cleveland Clinic on Tuesday, and the hope is that he will rejoin the Minnesota Twins lineup next Wednesday, according to the Star Tribune.

"He's going to try to swing a bat on Saturday," Twins General Manager Terry Ryan said. "He did receive a cortisone shot in Cleveland."

Before injuring himself, Morneau was batting .230 with four home runs and nine RBI in 20 games for the Twins. Injuries have followed him lately as he has not played in more than 81 games in a season since 2009.
