Twins’ Justin Morneau not playing this postseason
[picappgallerysingle id="9187088"]Things got exciting for a few days when we heard that Justin Morneau was working out with the Minnesota Twins, but alas, Justin Morneau will not be on the Twins playoff roster for the ALDS, the ALCS, or the World Series, should it come to that. It’s been announced that Justin Morneau will not play with the Minnesota Twins for the 2010 playoffs – in fact, he won’t even travel with the team.
It seems that Morneau has not had a symptom-free day while working out with the Twins, so the Twins are going to scale back his workouts once again. Instead of preparing for the Twins’ 2010 post season, Justin Morneau will prepare for 2011 spring training.
Justin Morneau has been out since he was kneed in the head while breaking up a double play against the Toronto Blue Jays on July 7th. We can only hope now that Morneau is able to recover enough to play next season. In case anyone was still wondering, it seems a concussion is pretty scary stuff.
