PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have traded Justin Morneau to the Pittsburgh Pirates, sending the veteran first baseman to a playoff-contending team for the final month of the season.

The deal was done on Saturday before the deadline. The Twins obtained outfielder Alex Presley and either a player to be named or cash.

Morneau is in the final year of his contract, making $14 million. He has been with the Twins for 11 seasons, winning the American League MVP award in 2006 and becoming one of the best hitters in the game until a concussion knocked him out of action in 2010. His production hasn't been the same since.

Morneau batted .259 with 32 doubles, 17 home runs and 74 RBIs for the Twins this year in 495 at_bats.
