Continued: Morneau rethinking long-term options

"I personally wouldn't have it any other way," Baker said. "I know if I had a position just handed to me, I might not be as good as I possibly could be. If I'm having to compete for a position, I know it's just going to make me better."

Bye-bye derby

Morneau said he has participated in his last Home Run Derby. He thinks this year's contest affected his swing, as he had 24 homers before the All-Star break compared with six in the second half.

"I don't want to make it sound like an excuse," he said. "I just haven't felt the same since then."

Gardenhire, who pitched to Morneau in the Derby, said: "That's fine with me. I was not a big proponent of it anyway."

Silva cleared for Tuesday

Carlos Silva received the go-ahead to make Tuesday's start against Texas, which will give him three more starts before season's end.

Silva left Wednesday's start at Kansas City after two innings because of a strained right groin.
