|Brewers claim Justin Morneau, cannot work out deal |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/28/14) The Brewers won a waiver claim on Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau, but were unable to work out a trade for him, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman Thursday.
The details of the Brewers' offer for Morneau are not known, but the Rockies evidently did not consider it worth of Morneau's services. He is still under contract for next season and is providing excellent value, leading the National league with a .317 average while adding 14 home runs, 69 RBI and an .857 OPS.
Morneau will be paid $6.75 million in 2015, and his contract has a mutual option for $9 million for 2016.
|Justin Morneau finally goes deep again Friday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/23/14) Summer had barely begun the last time Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau blasted off. But he slammed his first home run in two months in a Friday night loss to Miami.
Morneau went deep with one on in the fourth inning for his 14th of the year. He also singled to give him 12 hits in his last 39 at-bats.
|Hitters to start in Week 22 |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/22/14) Looking for a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 22 (Aug. 25-31)? You may just find him in the latest Start and Sit Hitters. Stephen Vogt, Justin Morneau, Jedd Gyorko, Martin Prado, J.J Hardy and Michael Morse are all labeled "starts" for the upcoming scoring period, with several other sleeper suggestions sprinkled throughout.
Be sure to give it a look before setting your lineup.
|Justin Morneau, DJ LeMahieu back at it Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/19/14) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau (neck) and infielder DJ LeMahieu are both back in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals.
Morneau had missed the team's previous two games as a result of his injury, but is batting third and starting at first base for his return. LeMahieu had missed just the one game, and is batting eighth and playing second base Tuesday.
|Justin Morneau, DJ LeMahieu unable to start Sunday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau (neck) and infielder DJ LeMahieu (ankle) were held out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Reds. Morneau missed a second straight game, while LeMahieu sat out his first game.
|Mired again in marginal numbers, Justin Morneau seemed like he might benefit from a change of scenery, which made the deal that sent him from the down-and-out Twins to the contending Pirates last August mildly interesting in Fantasy. But he was downright deficient in Pittsburgh, going without a home run in 77 at-bats. By the end, he was reduced to playing strictly against right-handers, which may become a permanent role for him if the move to Colorado doesn't revitalize his swing. Coors Field's lack of atmosphere has a way of righting wrongs for hitters, but now that we've already seen the whole change-of-scenery angle played out for Morneau, even its biggest believers have to be skeptical of what it can do for him. True, he's played in nothing but pitcher's parks over the last couple seasons, but it's not like he's been significantly better on the road. Assuming he retains an everyday role, Morneau is a good bet for his first 20-homer season since 2009 in his new surroundings, but he won't get back to where he was before his 2010 concussion. Much like Adam LaRoche, he's worth drafting late as a corner infielder in Rotisserie leagues, but you shouldn't reach for him.
