This season just keeps getting more strange for the Minnesota Twins.
First baseman Justin Morneau is experiencing mild concussion symptoms and will follow up with doctors on Wednesday. According to the Star Tribune, Morneau developed a headache on Monday, but that pain had subsided by Tuesday afternoon. He underwent a baseline test and hopes to avoid the disabled list.
Morneau, who missed the last three months of the 2010 season after taking a knee to the head in Toronto on July 7, indicated Sunday that his concussion issues were no longer front of mind, saying, "I couldn't tell you the last time I had (a concussion check-up)."
Morneau said he had check-ups "every couple weeks once the season started," but the focus over the past couple months has been on getting back to 100% after undergoing neck surgery.
Sidelined Monday with a sore shoulder, Morneau came into this week's series with the White Sox hitting .227/.285/.333 with four home runs on the season, and .235/.298/.314 since returning on Aug. 12.
