Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, who left the Twins’ lineup just before the All-Star break with a concussion and never returned, has declared that he will be ready to play again by the time Spring Training comes around in a few months.â†µ
“There’s not a doubt in my mind I’ll be ready for spring, especially with what I’ve done this week and how it’s reacted and how I’ve felt,” Morneau said. “That’s something that hasn’t even crossed my mind.”â†µ
The Twins could have used him in their lineup in the post-season. . .Morneau played only 80 of the Twins’ 162 games, yet still managed to finish fourth on the team in home runs with 18.
