The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Justin Morneau would be cleared for baseball activities like throwing, hitting, spitting and thinking about hunting in the offseason, in about a week. From there it’s to a rehab assignment, though it would be optimistic to see him back playing before mid-August. Still, after the last year or two, anything other than “Morneau was killed in a combine accident” would have to qualify as positive news.

Still, given the less-than-spectacular nature of everyone in the AL Central, that may not be too late to make a difference for the Twins this season.  I’m still bearish on their chances, but not everyone is. The return of Morneau would be pretty key for them.

    Does lifting weights with bears count?
