Justin Morneau Still Fuzzy, Alexi Casilla Nears Return

Justin Morneau can come of the disabled list as soon as this Friday, but as of now it doesn’t appear that will happen. Kelly Thesier of MLB.com tweets that Morneau is still fuzzy following a concussion he suffered nearly two weeks ago.

Justin Morneau will see a specialist tomorrow. He’s still battling concussion symptoms and likely won’t travel w/team this wknd.

Currently in the middle of a tight race in the American League Central, the Twins could use Morneau’s offense. Until the effects of the concussion subside however, the All-Star first baseman will continue to rest.

While the Twins wait on Morneau, infielder Alexi Casilla is apparently ready to return. Casilla had elbow surgery to remove bone spurs earlier this season, and manager Ron Gardenhire may be leaning towards activating him this week.

Sounds like Casilla will be back for #Twins on Wednesday.
