Morneau has been reinstated from the disabled list for tonight's game. Morneau has been on the DL since June 14 with a left wrist strain, but after being put on the DL, he had surgery to remove a herniated disc fragment in his neck. Morneau played seven rehab games for Triple-A Rochester, going .367/.387/.600 in 31 plate appearances with a home runs and four doubles.
Morenau has played in 55 games for the Twins this season, hitting .225/.281/.338 with four home runs after missing the second half of 2010 with complications following a concussion.
To make room for Morneau, the team placed outfielder Jason Repko on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder bursitis, retroactive to Thursday.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @eyeonbaseball on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
