Logan Morrison is likely to see less playing time when he returns from his thumb injury.

According to beat reporter Bob Dutton, the Mariners want to take "a long look" at Jesus Montero. Montero has been arguably the best hitter in minor league baseball this season and has played well since getting promoted (5-for-14 with three RBI). Morrison's .221 average this year is his lowest in six major league seasons. He could be headed for the bench if things don't improve quickly.

Logan Morrison was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a minor thumb injury.

It's unclear what exactly he did to injure the thumb, but it's believed to be a minor ailment. He's considered day-to-day.

Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Mariners dropped Monday's contest against the Tigers.

Morrison's three-run blast off of Alfredo Simon in the fifth inning gave the Mariners a 5-3 lead, but it didn't last long. The first baseman has been subpar at the dish this year considering his position, as he is hitting .236/.308/.392 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI.
Jul 7 - 1:33 AM

Logan Morrison came off the bench Sunday to fly out as a pinch-hitter.

Morrison didn't start against the Angels because of a sore back. It seems like he'll still be safe to use this week.
Jun 28 - 7:48 PM

Logan Morrison is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday due to a sore back.

He's been battling the back ailment for a bit. Morrison is expected to return to action on Tuesday following Monday's off day. Willie Bloomquist is at first base Sunday while LoMo rests.

Logan Morrison went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Mariners topped the Giants on Monday.

Morrison led the game off with a single and came around to score on a Nelson Cruz ground out. In the fifth, he singled in a run, then later scored on another ground out, this time by Austin Jackson. Morrison has hit safely in 19 of his last 21 games, though 23 of his 28 hits in that span of time are singles. He's batting .261/.328/.409 on the year with eight home runs and 23 RBI.
Jun 16 - 1:19 AM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Astros.

Morrison more or less ended Collin McHugh's existence. He launched a three-run homer off McHugh in the first inning, then destroyed a McHugh offering in the third inning for a two-run dinger. Those two homers would be Morrison's only hits of the game, but they were enough (on their own) to bring the 28-34 Mariners a much-needed victory. Morrison's hit eight homers and driven in 22 runs this season while slashing .258/.328/.412. There's a nice bit of pop in his bat, but Saturday's outburst represents something of an anomaly in terms of power.
Jun 13 - 7:56 PM

Logan Morrison extended his hitting streak to 15 games Tuesday, going 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI in a win over the Indians.

Batting leadoff, Morrison contributed an RBI double in the second inning against Corey Kluber. LoMo was hitting .219/.301/.390 when the streak began, but after Tuesday he's batting .260/.332/.392.
Jun 9 - 11:13 PM

Logan Morrison was scratched from the Mariners lineup on Thursday due to back spasms.

He's considered day-to-day. Dustin Ackley will take his place in the lineup and play left field for the Mariners.
Jun 4 - 9:40 PM

Logan Morrison homered off Dan Otero's first pitch in the bottom of the 11th to give the Mariners a 4-3 win over the A's on Friday.

Morrison also singled in the contest. He has five homers this year, four of which have come since May 1. His OPS has jumped from .487 in April to 1.448 so far in May.
May 9 - 2:16 AM

Logan Morrison went 3-for-3 with a walk and a pair of doubles, but the Mariners lost in walk-off fashion to the Angels on Tuesday.

Morrison doubled and scored in the second inning, doubled and was stranded in the fourth, then singled and scored in the eighth. It was yet another productive night at the plate for the first baseman, who has started to heat up. He's on a seven-game hitting streak and has bolstered his triple-slash line to a more respectable .247/.300/.430 with four home runs and seven RBI.
May 6 - 1:00 AM

Logan Morrison was 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a triple in Friday's loss to the Astros.

It was his second home run of the season and his first triple since the 2013 season with the Marlins. Morrison has pulled his batting average up from .149 to .213 over the past three games. It's not much, but it's progress.
May 2 - 12:01 AM

Logan Morrison went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI versus the Rangers on Wednesday.

Even a four-hit game could merely raise his average to .194. Still, it's a start. It's the first time in 20 games this year that he's come up with multiple hits.
Apr 29 - 11:30 PM

Logan Morrison hit his first homer Friday off the Twins' Phil Hughes.

Morrison hadn't had an extra-base hit or an RBI in 51 at-bats entering this one. On the other hand, he's struck out just six times, so one would think the hits would start coming soon. The Mariners don't really have another first baseman, so they'll be slow to pull the plug on Morrison if his slump lingers. They could put Seth Smith there if necessary.
