According to Joe C's Star Tribune article (http://www.startribune.com/sports/twins/138174469.html), Justin Morneau says he did not hurt his wrist punching inanimate objects in the clubhouse - described as a "internet rumor" by the scribe:

"My wrist injury was done swinging," Morneau said. "It was not the result of a locker room tirade, as it was put. The groove that the tendon sits in wears out over time. The doctor seems to think that some people are born with less of a groove and are more likely to develop that problem with overuse."

The good news is, Morneau may actually be close to swinging the bat. Baby steps towards the door...

OF the #Twins who were hurt last year, Morneau remains the biggest concern. Everything he says is so measured and careful.
