Justin Morneau homers, drives in six runs in blowout win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau went 3 for 4 with a home run and six RBI in his team's 16-2 shellacking of the Dodgers Wednesday.

Morneau kicked off the run parade with a three-run home run in the first inning, and he would drive two more runs in on a single later in the same inning. His sixth RBI came on a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Morneau is finishing an excellent rebound season in strong fashion, hitting .320/.363/.497 with 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 475 at-bats.


Justin Morneau right back in the lineup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Justin Morneau's absence was as short as advertised. The Rockies first baseman was back in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers after missing two games with intercostal soreness. Trainer Keith Dugger downplayed the injury over the weekend, terming it just "a little soreness."

Morneau has had trouble staying on the field for more than three or four games in a row in the second half, but he's batting .353 (12 for 34) with a home run so far in September.


Justin Morneau may not be out for long


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/2014) The Rockies left first baseman Justin Morneau out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, but the team's trainer downplayed the seriousness of the injury that kept him sidelined on Saturday as well. Keith Dugger told the Denver Post that Morneau's malady may not be an intercostal injury as first believed, saying, "it's not a huge (injury). It's not like an oblique type of soreness."

Dugger added that Morneau "just has a little soreness" behind his left lat. Given the nature of Morneau's injury, the team thinks he may not miss much more time.


Justin Morneau out of lineup Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Justin Morneau homers in four-hit performance vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau went 4 for 6 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-6, 12-inning win over the Padres Saturday.

Morneau homered in the third inning but didn't collect another extra-base hit in the game. The home run was just his second since June 24, when he drove in six runs in a win against the Cardinals. Morneau has hit .314/.356/.489 with 15 home runs and 72 RBI in 452 at-bats.


Brewers claim Justin Morneau, cannot work out deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) 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.

Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.

Justin Morneau to take part in the Home Run Derby


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau will take part in the Home Run Derby.

Justin Morneau five-RBI game goes for naught in loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
