MIAMI (AP) -Minnesota Twins slugger Justin Morneau remained in a hospital Sunday awaiting test results on his bruised right lung, and he didn't accompany the team on its flight home following a weekend series against the Florida Marlins.
The 2006 American League MVP was hurt Friday in a collision with Marlins catcher Miguel Olivo.
``He'll probably end up flying back Monday,'' Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. ``He says he's feeling fine. He has been text-messaging people, but they're being very cautious, and rightfully so.''
An earlier CT scan was normal, and X-rays were negative, but Morneau awaited results from another round of tests. The injury ended his streak of 191 consecutive games played, the fourth longest among active players.
