From the Minnesota Twins’ official Twitter feed comes word that first baseman Justin Morneau has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Rochester.

Morneau has been out of commission since undergoing surgery on his neck near the end of June. He’s also still regaining strength from the several months that he lost to a concussion.

The 30-year-old native of British Columbia was batting just .225 with a .619 OPS, four home runs and 21 RBI in 231 plate appearances before the neck problems landed him on the disabled list and eventually the surgeon’s table.

    Good news for me since I live in Rochester. I can sit in the front row and watch the game for about $12-$13.
