The Colorado Rockies don't expect to be without first baseman Justin Morneau for very long.
Morneau exited Friday's game with soreness in his left side and has been held out of the lineup the past two days, though team trainer Keith Dugger doesn't believe the injury is anything serious.
"We are not 100 percent sure it's an intercostal (injury)," Dugger told the Denver Post. "It's kind of sore behind his left lat. He just has a little soreness.
"It's not a huge (injury). It's not like an oblique type of soreness. We aren't overly concerned, but we want to make sure he's right before we send him out there."
Despite the Rockies being well out of the playoff race, Morneau has some hardware to still play for. The 33-year-old enters Sunday with a .315 average, trailing Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Josh Harrison and his .317 mark for the National League batting crown.
