|Justin Smoak's demotion leaves Logan Morrison as starter |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/4/14) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison has entrenched himself in a starting role with his strong play, and manager Lloyd McClendon confirmed as much Friday.
Morrison, who is hitting .267/.325/.480 since his return from the disabled list, has earned a permanent starting role. The Mariners optioned Justin Smoak to Triple-A Tacoma after his return from the disabled list Friday, with McClendon citing Morrison's play as a reason why.
|Logan Morrison clubs two home runs in win Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/24/14) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison exploded offensively Monday, going 4 for 4 with a walk, two home runs and four RBI in his team's 12-3 win over the Red Sox.
Morrison scored his team's first run with a solo home run in the second inning, scored again on a wild pitch in the fourth inning and knocked in his second runner with a fifth-inning single. He then blasted a two-run homer in the seventh inning before the Red Sox walked him in the eighth. With the big day, Morrison owns a .215/.282/.431 line with four home runs and nine RBI in 65 at-bats.
|Logan Morrison has yet to play a full major-league season due to injuries, and 2013 was no different. Morrison missed the first two months of the season recovering from another surgery on his right knee. Morrison got off to a pretty fast start once he suited up, batting .304 with a .557 slugging percentage, .939 OPS, four home runs and 11 RBI in his first 22 games. Unfortunately, Morrison wasn't able to sustain, batting .220 with a .308 slugging percentage, .624 OPS, two home runs and 25 RBI over his final 63 games. Morrison avoided another trip to the disabled list, but the Marlins had to give him regular days off in order to avoid a setback with his problematic right knee. It's a strategy the Mariners might also have to follow after acquiring the 26-year-old slugger in the offseason. Although the Marlins moved Morrison to first base because of his injury issues, the Mariners are probably going to primarily use Morrison in the outfield, so it will be interesting to see if he holds up. Morrison has been a major disappointment since his 23-homer season in 2011. He's still in the prime of his career, but he's pretty much an option for deep leagues Draft Day.
