Morneau still out

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

MINNEAPOLIS — Hop­ing to use the All-Star break as a slump-bust­ing spring­board, the Min­nesota Twins must start the sec­ond half with­out Justin Morneau.

The big-swinging first base­man was out of the lineup again Thurs­day night, still re­cov­er­ing from the ef­fects of a con­cus­sion. He said he will prob­a­bly land on the dis­abled list. The 2006 AL MVP has the third-best bat­ting av­er­age in the league at .345 to go with 18 home runs and 56 RBIs.
