Logan Morrison clubbed his 11th home run of the season Wednesday in the Rays' defeat of the Indians.

It was a solo shot in the third inning off Indians starter Josh Tomlin and it pushed the Rays' lead out to 5-0. They eventually won 7-4. Morrison also drew a walk in the afternoon victory and is now batting .246/.331/.530 in 40 games for Tampa Bay this season. LoMo is currently on pace for 41 home runs and 102 RBI, though the 29-year-old is a poor bet to continue mashing at this kind of clip.

Logan Morrison drilled his team-leading 10th home run of the season Saturday in the Rays’ loss to the Red Sox.

He struck out twice and popped out in his other three at-bats. Morrison has already homered six times in the month of May but is still hitting just .244 for the year. He’s also been whiffing a lot lately, punching out in 16 of his last 39 at-bats.
May 13 - 4:20 PM

Logan Morrison went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Royals on Wednesday.

He also drew a walk and scored twice in the ballgame. He hit a sacrifice fly to bring in a run in the first inning. He came up again in the third inning and drilled a deep home run to straight-away center field with a runner aboard. Morrison is having a strong season at the dish, batting .250/.344/.528 with nine homers, 18 runs scored and 23 RBI.
May 10 - 10:35 PM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He cranked a two-run bomb in the third inning, then added an RBI double in the sixth. He also drew a walk in the contest. He has a .275 batting average with seven home runs, 15 runs scored and 18 RBI.
May 6 - 8:23 PM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a homer and a walk Tuesday against the Marlins.

Morrison already has six homers, and it looks like he's on his way to reaching 20 for the first time since his first full season with Florida back in 2011. He's probably not going to have the run and RBI numbers to be much of an asset in mixed leagues, but he's definitely capable of remaining an asset for the Rays.
May 3 - 12:09 AM

Logan Morrison is absent from the Rays' starting lineup on Saturday.

With Francisco Liriano on the hill for the Blue Jays, Rays' skipper Kevin Cash is giving a few of his left-handed bats the day off. Rickie Weeks is in the lineup at first base for the Rays and will bat cleanup.
Apr 29 - 10:05 AM

Logan Morrison blasted a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning on Friday, powering the Rays to a 7-4 victory over the Blue Jays.

The Rays entered the eighth inning trailing 3-1 before their bats awoke. Corey Dickerson and Evan Longoria each swatted solo homers to tie the game before Morrison crushed a Dominic Leone offering over the center field wall for the go-ahead blast. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .243/.341/.473 with five long balls and 14 RBI on the season.
Apr 28 - 10:27 PM

Logan Morrison is back in the starting lineup Monday versus the Red Sox.

Morrison didn't start Sunday against lefty Drew Pomeranz, though he later walked in a pinch-hit appearance. He'll bat sixth Monday against knuckleballer Steven Wright.
Apr 17 - 8:45 AM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and two runs scored in Friday’s victory over the Red Sox.

The third-inning blast against Rick Porcello was the first grand slam of his career. Morrison was terrible last April, but he’s not having that problem this year. He’s hitting .333 (12-for-36) with three home runs and 10 RBI through his first 11 games.
Apr 14 - 11:33 PM

Logan Morrison slugged a solo homer in Monday’s loss to the Yankees.

His eighth-inning blast was the only offense of the game against Michael Pineda and company. Morrison has swung the bat well in the early part of the season, hitting .333 (9-for-27) with two homers and six RBI through eight games.
Apr 10 - 3:56 PM

Logan Morrison went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Rays' 7-3 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

LoMo started his 2017 with a bang, plating two runs with a single up the middle in the bottom of the first inning before slugging a solo shot off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka in the third. Morrison is looking to bounce back from a mostly-disappointing 2016 that saw him bat .238/.319/.414 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI over 107 games.
Apr 2 - 5:43 PM

Logan Morrison, who is coming back from wrist surgery, doubled, walked and scored twice Thursday against the Pirates.

Morrison hit leadoff today. He's an option to do that for the Rays during the regular season, as is Corey Dickerson. Neither player has speed to offer in that spot, but the OBPs should be solid, at least against righties.
Mar 9 - 4:56 PM

Logan Morrison (wrist) is slated to serve as the designated hitter Wednesday against Team Colombia.

Morrison required surgery last September to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist, so the Rays are bringing him along slowly this spring. The hope is that he'll be ready to play first base later this week. Barring any setbacks, he should have time to get ready for the season.
Mar 7 - 11:41 AM

Rays re-signed 1B Logan Morrison to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The deal was agreed to last week and then finalized Tuesday after LoMo passed his pre-signing physical. Lefty reliever Enny Romero was traded to the Nationals to clear a 40-man roster spot. Morrison batted .238/.319/.414 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 107 games last season for Tampa Bay. The left-handed hitter will return in 2017 as the club's primary first baseman.
