While Morneau struggled early this season, he has begun to turn things around. In his past 31 games, Morneau has hit .352 which has brought his average from .229 to .275. Morneau has begun to look like the All-Star that he once was.
If he keeps playing like this, Morneau can certainly help a contender reach the playoffs. Morneau has been identified as the best first baseman that could be available in an August trade by John Bonnes of the Minnesota Star-Tribune.
Based on the salary remaining on his contract, Morneau will not cost a team too much in a trade which could make him a very intriguing target.
