News: Morneau is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

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, )
