Last week manager Ron Gardenhire replied “I don’t see how it could possibly happen” when asked about Justin Morneau’s chances of playing again this season following a July 7 concussion, but general manager Bill Smith was far less willing to rule it out and yesterday the Twins revealed that Morneau has been symptom-free all week.
“Morneau’s doing really well,” Gardenhire told Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Had another good day, that’s about four good days in a row. He’s got the possibility of taking the full workout with us tomorrow, [batting practice], ground balls, everything.”
At the same time, Gardenhire called it “jumping the gun” when asked about the possibility of Morneau being on the ALDS roster, which must be finalized Wednesday.
