Player Notes
Justin Morneau finished 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Wednesday's 16-2 rout of the Dodgers.

Advice: Colorado absolutely pounded Dodgers spot starter Carlos Frias, with Morneau kicking off the fun on a three-run blast in the bottom of the first inning. He also hit a two-run single to finish off the scoring in that eight-run opening frame before doubling in the bottom of the fourth and collecting his sixth RBI of the afternoon on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran first baseman has an excellent .320/.363/.497 batting line with 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 127 games this season.

Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in the Rockies' win over the Dodgers Tuesday.

Advice: Morneau drove in a run with a groundout in the first inning, singling and scoring in the sixth. He later doubled and scored in the eighth as well, his first double since late August as he's managed an intercostal injury. Morneau is looking to finish strong after a really nice rebound year for the 33-year-old, who is hitting .316/.361/.486 with 73 RBI.

Justin Morneau (intercostal) is back in Monday's lineup against the Dodgers.

Advice: Morneau exited Friday's game with left intercostal soreness, but it's not a major concern. The veteran first baseman is hitting .315 on the year, just two points behind Pittsburgh's Josh Harrison for the National League lead.

Justin Morneau (intercostal) is expected to return to the lineup soon.

Advice: Morneau exited Friday's game with what the Rockies called left intercostal soreness, but trainer Keith Dugger admitted Saturday that the club was "not 100 percent sure it's an intercostal (injury). It's kind of sore behind his left lat. He just has a little soreness. It's not a huge (injury). It's not like an oblique type of soreness. We aren't overly concerned, but we want to make sure he's right before we send him out there." Ben Paulsen started at first base Saturday and should remain there until Morneau is ready.

Justin Morneau was removed from Friday's game against the Cardinals due to left side intercostal soreness.

Advice: Morneau is considered day-to-day and should return to the Rockies lineup at some point over the weekend. He is enjoying a fine season at the dish, slashing .315/.359/.485 with 15 homers and 72 RBI in 124 contests.

Justin Morneau is not in Monday's lineup against the Mets.

Advice: He's presumably getting the night off. Michael Cuddyer will make the start at first base Monday and is likely being eased back into action after his hamstring strain.
