EDGE Analysis

With lefty Hector Santiago due up for Minnesota, Morneau will head to the bench, affording Avisail Garcia a start at DH. Morneau, who will be a free agent again this winter, figures to back in there to face right-hander Jose Berrios in Sunday's season finale.

Morneau homered and knocked in three in a 2-for-3 game Monday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Morneau was hitting a brutal .224/.296/.306 without a home run in 14 games in September before Monday's slump-busting performance. He owns just a .258/.296/.437 line on the year. Morneau has already said he is undecided on his playing status for 2017, and his performance this year hasn't suggested he has much left in the tank.

Morneau (neck) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's tilt with the Royals, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio AM reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the neck injury keeping Morneau on the bench for a fifth straight game, Avisail Garcia will handle the DH duties. The White Sox haven't provided much clarity on Morneau's injury situation, but given his advancing age and the team's place in the standing, it wouldn't be surprising if he saw light usage or was shut down for the final two weeks of the season.

Morneau (neck) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Morneau missed Tuesday's tilt with a sore neck and though the ailment was considered minor enough that he'd be able to return after just one day off, manager Robin Ventura will be cautious with the 35-year-old and hold him out again Wednesday. Jose Abreu will fill in once again as the DH, while Todd Frazier will get the start at first base.

Morneau went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI Saturday against the Twins, his former team.

EDGE Analysis

At this point in his career, being able to extract anything from Morneau should be considered a bonus for fantasy owners, as his fantasy value is limited because of lower production and because he typically plays designated hitter. He's batting .270/.310/.454 on the season with six homers and 23 RBI over 146 at-bats.
