Report: Dodgers tried to trade for Morneau last week

Attached Image: Morneau.jpg The Dodgers and the Red Sox have just completed a blockbuster of a trade in late August but it may not have even happened if Los Angeles was able to coerce their first choice – Justin Morneau – from the Minnesota Twins.

According to the Los Angeles Times’ Dylan Hernandez, the Dodgers, who were interested in Morneau at the non-waiver deadline in July, contact the Twins last week to see if a deal could be struck for the first baseman.
[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]Morneau, who is owed roughly $2.5 million for the remainder of the year and another $14 million in 2013, had a slow start to the season, bogged down by his surgically repaired wrist. However, in the season’s second-half, he has hit .310/.361/.493 in 155 plate appearances suggesting that he has healed well.
