Justin Morneau you are on the clock.

The Twins first baseman has been placed on revocable waivers according to a league source which means Morneau could be traded as soon as Wednesday if a team claims him.

So less than two weeks after the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline Morneau was swamped with more questions about his future in Twinstripes.

“I think it will be good to know in the next 24 48 hours where I stand for the rest of the year. Anyway” Morneau said. “That’s good to know I guess. Other than that there’s not much I can do about it.”

Morneau’s waivers expire at noon Wednesday. At that point a number of things could happen:

• If no team has claimed Morneau the Twins could trade him to any team they wish.

• If a team claims Morneau the Twins have 48 hours to discuss a trade with that team and strike a deal much like the Rangers did Friday when they landed outfielder Alex Rios from the White Sox.

• The Twins could just let Morneau go to the claiming team which would have to assume his salary for the rest of the season — roughly $3.5 million. The Twins say they are not in salary-dump mode however and have indicated that they are willing to eat salary to acquire a suitable player in return.

• And the Twins could just pull Morneau off waivers and not trade him at all. A team can attempt to move a player through waivers twice this month but can’t pull him back off waivers a second time.

Morneau has spiced up trade possibilities by entering Tuesday with a .269 batting average six home runs and 14 RBI in August. That comes after he hit .175 with four homers and five RBI in July. Pittsburgh and Baltimore two teams looking for hitting scouted Morneau in July and passed. Could they double back?

Twins General Manager Terry Ryan would not discuss anything related to Morneau on Tuesday.

“It’s easy for me to respond to that” Ryan said. “I can’t [respond].”

Just like before the July 31 nonwaiver deadline Morneau is skeptical that he will be dealt.
