Justin Morneau 1B/DH COL 3 Days

Justin Morneau hit his first home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Morneau launched the solo shot off Giants starter Tim Hudson in the seventh inning. It was his only hit of the game, but the veteran first baseman is still batting .325 in his first season with the Rockies. The 32-year-old hit 17 homers last season and still has some pop left in his bat.

Justin Morneau (neck) took a successful round of batting practice with his teammates on Friday.

The veteran first baseman has been battling a stiff neck for the last week, but is inching closer to getting back on the field. He's expected to be ready for Opening Day, but fantasy owners need to factor in his age and lengthy injury history into his draft day price.

Rockies signed 1B Justin Morneau to a two-year, $13 million contract with a mutual option for 2016.

The deal was agreed to at the beginning of December and then made official Friday after Morneau passed his pre-signing physical. The 32-year-old has struggled with post-concussion symptoms in recent seasons, but he still has good power and Coors Field should do wonders for that end of his game. If he rebuilds his confidence, perhaps the plate discipline will follow.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies have agreed to terms with Justin Morneau on a two-year, $13 million contract.

Morneau isn't nearly the same player he was during his MVP season back in 2009 and is coming off a year where he batted .259/.323/.411 season with 17 homers and 77 RBI in 152 games. The good news is that he should have a shot to rebound a bit while playing his home games at Coors Field. Michael Cuddyer will stay in right field now with Morneau on board.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are "closing in" on a two-year deal with Justin Morneau.

Renck notes that there are "some wrinkles to iron out," but the deal is in its "final stages." There's no word yet on the financials. Morneau is coming off a .259/.323/.411 season with 17 homers and 77 RBI in 152 games, but he could see a nice boost in production playing half his games at Coors Field.
