FT. MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Justin Morneau says he is feeling better seven months after a concussion ended his season, but he likely will not play in the Minnesota Twins' first few games of spring training while he works his way back.
Morneau spoke Monday, a day before Twins position players are due to report. He says he is still not quite 100 percent from the injury that occurred in Toronto last July. He has been swinging a bat, taking grounders and all his usual baseball activities.
Morneau says he will still feel a little foggy occasionally later in the day after a strenuous workout. But he still plans on being ready to go for opening day on April 1. Morneau says he will probably sit out "the first four or five games" depending on how he feels.
