Justin Morneau Injury: Twins Slugger Apparently Ready To Be Activated

Justin Morneau is eligible to return to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday from the disabled list. Apparently his wrist injury will allow him to do just that, too, considering he looked solid in batting practice earlier in the week.

Nothing is for certain quite yet, but manager Ron Gardenhire said prior to Tuesday afternoon's game that the plan was to get Morneau back following the game.

"He looked really good and has talked to the trainers about being activated," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "The trainers haven't told me yet, but I have to go out and see and talk to him. But that's the plan unless it changes drastically."

Lord knows the Twins need another shakeup and, while Morneau likely won't make enough of a difference, his return certainly can't hurt the anemic offense.
