Seattle promotes Nick Franklin, place Logan Morrison on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) The worst-kept secret in baseball was finally revealed Wednesday when the Mariners officially announced the promotion of Nick Franklin. He will take the spot opened with the placement of Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list due to a hamstring injury.

Morrison has struggled to start the season. That could open the door for Franklin to take over a permanent starting spot. He has been torrid to open the year at Triple-A Tacoma.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

However, ESPN.com reports that the Rays also have a strong interest in Morrison.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/2/2013) CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports that the Marlins will tender a contract to arbitration-eligible first baseman Logan Morrison. However, the Marlins have not ruled out trading away Morrison and looking elsewhere for a solution at first base.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) The Brewers are expected to have interest in trading for Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison if he is made available in trade talks, MLBDailyDish.com reports.

The Marlins had yet to discuss a potentially arbitration-avoiding deal with Morrison by Sunday, leaving open the possibility that he could be traded or non-tendered. He hit .242/.333/.375 with six home runs and 36 RBI in 293 at-bats last season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison was back in the starting lineup Tuesday night against the Cubs.

Logan Morrison back in action


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison, who fouled a pitch off his left knee Saturday, returned to the starting lineup Tuesday night against the Cubs.

Knee injury shouldn't sideline Logan Morrison much longer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison said Monday his left knee felt fine after fouling a pitch off it Saturday. However, Morrison sat for a second straight game against the Cubs.

"The knee feels great," Morrison said, per MLB.com. "It was a little sore [Sunday] but I'm good to go."


Losing patience with Logan Morrison


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/28/2013) Well into his fourth season with the Marlins, we know this much about Logan Morrison. He has decent doubles power, draws walks and doesn't strike out too much. That profile would seemingly make Morrison valuable in standard Head-to-Head leagues, but since his June 9 season debut, he ranks 30th among first basemen in Fantasy points.

If you're thinking about protecting Morrison in a deep keeper league, it might be time to consider other first base options for 2014. He has had only one season so far in which he has shown home run power, and while the potential for its re-emergence is there, at age 26 it's getting harder to bank on Morrison's "upside." He may never be much more productive than he is right now, and his current level doesn't stack up against the competition at his position in Head-to-Head or Rotisserie leagues.


Logan Morrison sends batting average higher in August


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison had two singles and a pair of RBI in five at-bats Wednesday at Kansas City. Morrison is batting .340 in 12 August games, raising his average from .252 to .276.

Morrison is slugging .468 with a .872 OPS, one triple, four doubles, six runs, nine RBI and five walks in August. Unfortunately, he hasn't hit a home run in 28 games.


Adjustment to swing helps Logan Morrison


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison has hit safely in each of his first six August games. He's batting .440 (11 for 25) with one triple and six RBI in six August games after batting a disappointing .205 in 21 July games.

"Here’s a guy that was out for an extended period of time and just now starting to feel more comfortable," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said, per The Miami Herald. "Hopefully, he can finish this last part of the season strong. [Before] he was playing through the knee and fighting the bad back. When you go a year or two where you play sporadically, it affects you."

Morrison said he recently adjusted his swing to help him drive the ball better.

"It was a mechanical thing just getting synched up again and keeping the barrel of the bat moving and staying behind the ball," Morrison said. "I just had to find a way to delay my hands so I can keep the barrel of the bat moving the whole time I’m swinging in order to build up more speed and drive balls into the gaps."


Logan Morrison falls HR shy of cycle


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2013) Miami first baseman Logan Morrison needed only a home run to complete the cycle Friday during a 10-0 win over the Indians.

Morrison doubled, tripled and singled as he went 4 for 5 with four RBI and two runs scored in the incredible performance. He's batting .273.

The Marlins' first baseman has gone 9 for 25 (.360) over his last seven games with six RBI.


Logan Morrison's home run drought continues


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison broke open a scoreless game in the sixth inning Thursday with an RBI single off Mets' All-Star Matt Harvey, propelling Miami to a 3-0 win. Morrison finished 1 for 4 with one run and one strikeout.

Morrison is batting .167 (8 for 48) in his last 14 games, dropping his season average from .304 to .252. He hasn't homered in 17 games and has just three RBI in that span.


Logan Morrison getting more comfortable playing every day


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison had a season-high three hits Saturday against the Pirates, snapping a 3-for-28 skid. Morrison is batting .270 with a .362 on-base percentage in 31 games since coming off the disabled list in early June, but he admits he's getting more comfortable playing every day.

"I think it's mechanical for me," Morrison said, per MLB.com. "It's definitely not mental. I feel like I'm still having good ABs. I'm just not having results. I'm driving balls to the center-field wall, and they're just not going out. I'm getting walks."


Logan Morrison needs to be owned in more leagues


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison might be an injury-prone headache, but he's finally healthy and producing, so his ownership needs to break through 50 percent sooner rather than later. Let's not forget the fact he also provides Fantasy owners versatility given his dual-eligibility (first base and outfield).

He's due to see a market correction because it's unlikely he will hit above .300 and slug .600, but Morrison is only 25 years old and has yet to hit the prime of his career. He was an elite prospect once upon a time, so you know he has offensive potential.

If Morrison can stay healthy, adding him off waivers could end up being like a major-league team acquiring a much-needed bat at the trade deadline.


No slowing down Logan Morrison


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2013) Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison continued to swing a hot bat Saturday, homering for the third time in four games in a 5-4 loss to the Cardinals.

Morrison went 1 for 4 in the game with a home run, his fourth of the season. He drove in two with his home run, while scoring once.

Morrison has been excellent since returning from a knee injury, hitting .318 with a 1.021 OPS in 19 games. He has four home runs and 10 extra-base hits overall, with 10 RBI in 66 at-bats. 


Logan Morrison homers in loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison hit his third home run of the season in a 4-1 loss to the Cardinals Friday night. It was his only hit in four at-bats.

Morrison is 4 for 10 with two home runs, three RBI and three walks in his last three games. He's 20 for 62 since joining the team in early June.


Logan Morrison survives injury scare


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2013) Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison dodged an injury scare Tuesday against the Braves.

Morrison, who missed most of the first half recovering from knee surgery, collided with Braves pitcher Kris Medlen on a close play at first base in the third inning. Morrison appeared to be seriously injured, but he shook off the pain and finished out the game.

"I’m sure [Morrison] will be sore [Wednesday]," manager Mike Redmond said, per The Miami Herald. "He seemed all right after it happened."
