News: Morneau is out of the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Fellow lefty swingers Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson are both in the lineup, but Morneau will sit as Matt McBride mans first and bats sixth against Vidal Nuno. Morneau is enjoying a strong bounce-back campaign after a disappointing 2013 season, but he's still batting just .241/.270/.380 against southpaws.(RotoWire, )

News: Morneau continued his run at the NL batting title by going 2 for 3 in Monday's 3-2 win at San Francisco. Impact: Morneau entered Tuesday's action leading the NL with a .317 average - six points ahead of Philadelphia's Ben Revere.(STATS, 1:29pm)

News: Morneau is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Impact: The Rockies haven't suggested that an injury is in play for Morneau, who recently dealt with a neck ailment. Instead, it appears he is just getting some rest for preservation purposes. Matt McBride will cover for him at first base.(RotoWire, )

News: Morneau went 2-for-4 with one run scored and two RBI while driving out his 14th homer of the season on Friday against the Marlins. Impact: The 33-year-old first baseman has kept his batting average around the .300 mark since the middle of June. Morneau's slash line (.319/.362/.504) is evident that as long as he can keep himself healthy he'll be a top-tier contributor at first base.(RotoWire, )

News: Morneau is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals. Impact: Morneau has battled neck soreness and recent days and the Royals are starting a lefty in Danny Duffy, so manager Walt Weiss will take the opportunity to get the 33-year-old some additional maintenance. Matt McBride will take over at first base and bat sixth in his absence. Morneau just rattled off a 10-game hit streak and has hit safely in all but two games this month.(RotoWire, )

News: Morneau (neck) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals. Impact: A late scratch from Saturday's lineup with neck stiffness, Morneau also missed both games of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds as a result of the injury. It seems Monday's off day provided sufficient maintenance, however, as Morneau is penciled in to man first base and bat third Tuesday against right-hander James Shields. In 44 career at-bats against Shields, Morneau has 15 hits (.341 average) including four home runs.(RotoWire, )
