Morneau won't join team in Baltimore
Twins general manager Bill Smith says Morneau "continues to make progress, however, he is not yet ready to resume baseball activities." Morneau was placed on the disabled list late Thursday night. He has not played since getting injured on July 7 while sliding into second base in Toronto.
The Twins are playing it cautious with the All-Star slugger, who is hitting .345 with 18 homers this season.
The Twins also say reliever Clay Condrey will undergo platelet-rich plasma therapy on his right elbow next Tuesday. He was moved to the 60-day disabled list on Monday and is expected to be out at least three months.
