Minnesota Twins 1B Justin Morneau carried a .297 batting average into play Wednesday, June 12, with a team-high 36 RBI, but he has just two home runs in 57 games. He has not homered since April 28, which is the longest drought of his career. Morneau isn't losing any sleep over the power outage. "It's one of those things where it'll come," Morneau said. "I just have to keep hitting the ball hard. It's frustrating and not what I like to see, but doing other things to help us win, I think I can live with that."
Fantasy Tip: The important thing is that Morneau has been healthy, after experiencing a myriad of injuries in recent years. The Canadian slugger remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues despite his homerless streak.

Minnesota Twins 1B Justin Morneau said Wednesday, April 3, that he doesn't set personal statistical goals before the season, but feels he is still young enough to post big numbers if he can remain healthy. "Anything's possible," Morneau said. "I'm still young enough. I think I proved to myself last year that when I'm healthy I feel like I can contribute, and whatever that means I'm not sure, but hopefully it's somewhere around when I was playing 150, 160 games a year and driving in runs and helping us score runs and helping us win ball games."
Fantasy Tip: For the record, Morneau won't be 32 until mid-May, and he did rebound nicely in 2012 with 19 homers and a .773 OPS while playing in 134 games. It was his most production since 2009. He remains a solid fantasy option with plenty of power potential if he can avoid the injury bug.

I feel I can comfortably play. I've never been hurt before, and I wanted a little more of a grace period before the tournament to make sure I'm ready for my primary commitment to the Cincinnati Reds."
