Justin Morneau shouldn’t hasten return From Concussion

Justin Morneau

Justin Morneau has not been in the line-up for the Minnesota Twins in about a month and a half. This concerns Manager Ron Gardenhire, General Manager Bill Smith, and the rest of the organization’s hierarchy. Dealing with concussions is a continually evolving practice for physicians and specialists. According to Web MD – the symptoms can be devastating to not only one’s job performance, but also daily routines.

They include, but are not limited to: blurry vision, a loss of balance, nausea, headaches, slurred speech, and memory loss.

Obviously, these aforementioned sufferings can adversely affect Morneau’s production at the plate and in the field. Ron Gardenhire has consistently stated that there is no timetable for his return, but Morneau has recently started taking batting practice before games.
