Logan Morrison doubled in Kyle Seager in the top of the 12th to help the Mariners beat the Angels 3-2 on Saturday.
28 innings in two days for the Mariners and Angels. Morrison's hit put Seattle up 2-1, and the Mariners went on to add an insurance run on Justin Smoak's squibber against the shift. They ended up needing it, as David Freese homered to start the bottom of the 12th. However, Charlie Furbush was able to finish up from there. Morrison is currently hitting .186 in 59 at-bats this month, so he could use a few more big hits to help his job security. Jul 20 - 1:32 AM

Logan Morrison led the 12-3 bludgeoning of Boston on Monday, going 4-for-4 with two homers, three RBI and four runs scored.

He reached base all five times up, also walking. LoMo's second inning solo homer off starter John Lackey tied the game 1-1, and his three-run bomb off Chris Capuano in the seventh capped the game's scoring. It's difficult to understate how surprising this outburst was. Morrison raised his batting average from .164 to .215, he doubled his homers from two to four, and his OPS took on serious helium, rising from .522 to .712. Despite the outburst, Morrison (.245 career average and 44 homers in 1,356 at-bats) should be relegated to AL-only leagues.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's tilt with Kansas City.

The home run was Morrison's fifth of the year. Despite the homer, Morrison is batting just .185/.241/.333 on the season. Those three RBI constituted more than half of his season total.

Logan Morrison is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

He'll take a seat with left-hander Eric Stults on the hill for Seattle. Jesus Montero will start at first base Tuesday while John Buck serves as the DH.

Logan Morrison (head) is in Monday's lineup against the Padres.

Morrison left Sunday's game after he hit the wall of the Mariners' dugout with his bat and a piece broke off and hit him in the forehead. He suffered a cut as a result, but fortunately the silly incident won't keep him out of the lineup.

Logan Morrison was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Rangers due to a cut on his forehead.

The injury doesn't appear to be serious and he should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two. John Buck, making his first career appearance at the position, took his place at first base.

Mariners activated OF Logan Morrison from the 15-day disabled list.

Morrison is starting at first base for the Mariners on Wednesday night and could see regular starts there until Justin Smoak (quad) returns. Morrison was batting .150 with a .377 OPS in eight games before suffering a severe right hamstring strain in mid-April. He is not a good fantasy option.

Logan Morrison (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

LoMo admitted to still not feeling 100 percent when he ran the bases during a simulated game Tuesday. However, he did some more running Wednesday and will be cleared to start the rehab assignment if he recovers well. Morrison has been sidelined since mid-April with a strained right hamstring.

Logan Morrison (hamstring) is still not ready to begin a rehab assignment.

Morrison batted against James Paxton (lat) and Taijuan Walker (shoulder) during their simulated games Tuesday, but he remained less than 100 percent while running the bases. He won't be allowed to begin a rehab assignment until he's running full-out with no issues. "It’s just (a matter) of getting back at it," he said, "and trying to remember – it’s weird to say this – how to run. You just kind of feel uncoordinated when you haven’t done it in a while. It’s a little different when you go from the elliptical and then try to sprint outside. I’m trying to get the feel back."

Logan Morrison (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment this week.

LoMo has been taking batting practice and running the bases in recent days and on Saturday participated in a simulated game. He seems likely to be activated from the disabled list before the end of the month. "I think he’s close," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "He’s swinging the bat pretty decent. He doesn’t seem to be restricted on the basepaths. He’s moving as slow as ever."
May 18 - 9:59 AM

Logan Morrison (hamstring) will run the bases for a second straight day Tuesday.

LoMo woke up with no issues after running the bases Monday, which is obviously a good sign. It's sounding like he could be cleared for a rehab assignment soon, with a return before the end of the month looking likely.
May 13 - 7:16 PM

Logan Morrison (hamstring) did some running drills and will take batting practice Monday.

It's the first time since he suffered a setback a couple weeks ago that LoMo has done any running. There's still no timetable for his return, but it sounds like he's finally making some progress. Morrison hasn't played since mid-April.
May 12 - 7:15 PM

Logan Morrison aggravated his right hamstring injury last week.

We knew that Morrison was recovering more slowly than expected, but it turns out he actually reinjured the hamstring while trying to run. There's no timetable for his return. "It was getting better, but I was running the bases and felt it pull again, so I'm kind of back to where we were," Morrison said Thursday. "I'm in the pool and walking the treadmill and stuff like that. So I'm progressing again and hopefully soon I'll be back to running and after that back out there playing. It's been a while."
May 8 - 11:08 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that Logan Morrison's right hamstring is "not responding."

"I have been [surprised]," McClendon said. "It is what it is. There's no sense in arguing about it. I get him when I get him. Until then, I'll just read his tweets." The M's were originally hoping that LoMo could return when first eligible, but that time came and went a week ago. There's no timetable for his return.
May 5 - 10:37 PM

Logan Morrison (hamstring) is not ready for a rehab assignment yet.

LoMo is eligible to return from the DL Wednesday, but he's not even ready for rehab games yet. He remains in Seattle to work with team trainers and there's no timetable for the 26-year-old's return.
