The Colorado Rockies have transferred first baseman Justin Morneau to the 60-day disabled list.
Morneau sustained a concussion and a cervical neck sprain in a May 13 game against the Los Angeles Angels and has not played since. In early June, the Rockies said they did not have a timetable for the first baseman's return.
The 34-year-old Morneau has dealt with concussions throughout his career, most notably missing substantial time in 2010 and 2011 after sustaining a concussion when he slid into the knee of Toronto Blue Jays infielder John McDonald during a game on July 7, 2010.
In 27 games before going on the disabled list, Morneau hit .290 with three home runs and nine RBIs. Last year, he was the National League batting champion after hitting .319.
Colorado is currently 35–47 and in last place in the NL West.
