Since suffering a concussion against the Toronto Blue Jays early last week, Justin Morneau hasn’t appeared in the Twins’ lineup. The injury forced him out of the starting lineup for the American League in the All-Star Game earlier this week, and Joe Christensen on the Star Tribune tweets that he isn’t playing in the first game of the second half tonight.
Justin Morneau is not in the lineup tonight. No update yet on how he’s feeling.
It sounds like there is a possibility Morneau could land on the disabled list. With the move retroactive to last week, the move would allow Morneau another week to heal.
