Minnesota Twins DH Kendrys Morales might be a piece the club is willing to trade. He's riding a 12-game hit streak but still has only a .599 on-base-plus-slugging percentage.
Fantasy Tip: A change of scenery could do wonders for him over the final two months. Deep leaguers should scoop him up for the chance he lands in a better environment, as well as simply to ride this recent hot streak.

Minnesota Twins 1B Chris Colabello, DH Kendrys Morales and OF Chris Parmelee are expected to receive time at first base while 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) is on the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how the playing time will be split, but all probably will get some time at first base. Morales is probably owned in most leagues, so owners in deeper mixed leagues can consider adding Colabello or Parmelee. Colabello is a better option at this point since he was playing well before he was called up to the team.

Minnesota Twins DH Kendrys Morales is hitting sixth as the designated hitter Monday, June 9.
Fantasy Tip: The Twinkies aren't wasting any time getting the slugger into their lineup after signing him Saturday. You shouldn't waste any time throwing him into your fake lineup, either.

Minnesota Twins DH Kendrys Morales will work out with the team and take the field when he's ready. "It's a day-to-day thing, I'll be working out and talking to (manager Ron Gardenhire) and the coaching staff," Morales said. "When I'm ready, I'll be in there. We just want to do it the right way."
Fantasy Tip: Morales should be owned in all leagues at this point. If you're in a weekly league, it's probably safest to leave him on the bench this week until we have a better idea of when he might play his first game for the Twinkies.

The Minnesota Twins have reportedly agreed to terms with free-agent 1B/DH Kendrys Morales (Mariners).
Fantasy Tip: Morales, who hit 23 homers and drove in 77 runs last year, should be added in all fantasy formats immediately. This signing appears to be bad news for OF Jason Kubel, who has struggled mightily at the plate for most of the season, as well as C Josmil Pinto, who had been getting most of the playing time at designated hitter prior to the signing of Morales.
