Could Morneau begin the season on the DL?
Yesterday's news that Morneau's wrist is still bothering him, along with the 3-30 spring training with no base hits and ESPECIALLY that Justin is talking about how he has been almost completely unable to pull the ball makes me wonder....
Under what scenario, outright of an obvious injury, do the Twins coax Morneau to begin the season on the DL? Is there one?
Let's say he is stilll hitting .125 at the end of spring. He has asked to sit out every other day because swinging hard is making it hard for his wrist to recover. At what point do the doctors step in and say "It needs rest. You need rest." (And then come out and tell us all "He's got tendonitis. No biggee. He'll be ready in a couple of weeks.")
I'm wondering if there is any scenario in which this happens and the club comes north with Parmelee. I'm not sure there is.
