Bill Chastain of MLB.com believes that Logan Morrison is unlikely to return to the Rays next season.
The impending free agent signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Rays last winter when he couldn't find a full-time gig on the free market and went on to post a career year with 38 long balls. The Rays would like to give prospect Jake Bauers a shot at first base next season, so unless Morrison is left out in the cold again this winter, expect that he'll land a more lucrative deal elsewhere.

Despite his 36 home runs and 82 RBI on the season, Morrison has slumped of late, slashing just .210/.288/.437 over his last 34 games.

It was part of a 3-for-5 night for LoMo, who hit a solo homer in the top of the seventh and singled twice as the Rays routed the visiting Twins. Morrison has been an under-the-radar breakout star here in 2017, boasting an .893 OPS with the 36 bombs and a total of 82 RBI through 130 games.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's 3-2, 10-inning win over the Cardinals.

Morrison socked a no-doubt solo home run off Lance Lynn in the fourth inning, one which landed an estimated 435 feet out to right center. He would repeat the solo feat in the 10th to give the Rays a 3-2 advantage that would go on to stand as the final score. Lo-Mo is up to 31 home runs on the season, now, and is working to a .244/.350/.512 triple-slash overall.
