The Minnesota Twins are hosting the Los Angeles Angels Wednesday night, but in exactly a week will head to Detroit for a quick two-game series and five other games over six days in the midwest. Justin Morneau, who has been out of the Twins lineup since May 1 due to a sore left wrist, hopes to make that trip and play:

The wrist is the same one on which Morneau required surgery last season. Morneau was removed early from the Twins' April 30 game against the Angels and he has been out ever since. Morneau was officially placed on the disabled list Saturday, May 5, but the date can be retroactive to when he first started missing games, which would make the May 16 game in Detroit right around when he'd be available to come off the disabled list.
