Apr 5 - 12:39 PM

Logan Morrison is out of the lineup on Monday for the Twins' game against the Pirates.

There's no designated hitter since the game is in Pittsburgh, so there's no room in the lineup for Morrison. Instead, the Twins go with: Brian Dozier 2B, Joe Mauer 1B, Miguel Sano 3B, Eddie Rosario LF, Eduardo Escobar SS, Max Kepler RF, Byron Buxton CF, Jason Castro C, and Lance Lynn on the mound.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-3 with an RBI in a 3-1 victory over the Pirates on Wednesday in the Grapefruit League.

Morrison's RBI came on a single in the first. The 30-year-old first baseman is having a fantastic spring, and now has his Grapefruit League batting average up to .381.
Mar 21 - 8:49 PM

Logan Morrison singled and walked twice as the Twins' DH on Tuesday.

Morrison missed five days with a glute injury sustained last week.
Mar 13 - 4:57 PM

Logan Morrison (glute) will return to Grapefruit League action on Tuesday.

Morrison tweaked his right glute last Wednesday and has sat out a few days as a precaution, but he will be fine. The 30-year-old will operate as the Twins' primary designated hitter this season.
Mar 11 - 12:16 PM

The soreness in Logan Morrison's right glute which forced him out of Wednesday's game is mostly gone.

Morrison will be held out of the lineup again Friday, but he's expected to be fine. He'll open 2018 as the Twins' primary designated hitter.
Mar 9 - 12:56 PM

Logan Morrison has some tightness in his right glute.

Morrison was pulled from Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox after sliding hard into home plate on a Max Kepler RBI single in the top of the third inning. LoMo could be seen laughing with his teammates in the clubhouse shortly thereafter and he didn't require any immediate treatment from the Twins' medical staff, so this wouldn't seem to be a serious concern. The 30-year-old slugger signed a one-year, $6.5 million contract with Minnesota in late February. He batted .246/.353/.516 with a career-high 38 home runs in 2017 with the Rays.
Mar 7 - 3:29 PM

Logan Morrison was removed from Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox after the top of the third inning.

Morrison landed hard on his right side while sliding into home plate on a Max Kepler RBI single in the top of the third and was replaced at first base by Kennys Vargas to start the bottom of the third. The early exit might have been precautionary. Look for more information by Wednesday evening.
Mar 7 - 2:17 PM

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Logan Morrison turned down an offer from the Royals before signing with the Twins.

Morrison is from Kansas City, and he was quoted earlier in the offseason saying that he'd love to play for his hometown team. It's unknown how much the Royals offered Morrison, but it's likely he received more cash along with a better chance to win from the Twins. The Royals signed Lucas Duda to play first base on Wednesday at one year, $3.5 million. LoMo got a one-year, $6.5 million deal and a vesting option for 2019.
Feb 28 - 7:46 PM

Twins signed 1B/DH Logan Morrison to a one-year, $6.5 million contract with a vesting option for 2019.

The deal was agreed to on Sunday and then finalized Wednesday after Morrison reported to Twins camp in Fort Myers, Florida and passed his physical. LoMo posted a career-best .246/.353/.516 batting line with 38 home runs and 85 RBI in 149 games last season for the Rays. He'll serve as the Twins' primary designated hitter in 2018 and could have considerable fantasy value as a middle-order power bat in the dynamic Minnesota lineup.
Feb 28 - 12:23 PM

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that Logan Morrison has agreed to terms with the Twins on a one-year, $6.5 million contract with a vesting option for 2019.

Morosi hears the contract could be worth as much as $16.5 million over two years, and ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says Morrison has a "reasonable chance" at maxing out the deal. Morrison no doubt had eyes on a bigger contract after he batted .246/.353/.516 with a career-high 38 home runs in 2017 with the Rays, but he never gained much traction in the slow offseason market. He should be the Twins' main designated hitter and can also fill in at first base.
Feb 25 - 2:00 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Twins are "in serious talks" with Logan Morrison and the two sides are "moving closer" to a deal.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press was first to report earlier Sunday that the Twins had interest in LoMo, and it appears they're nearing the finish line on a contract. Morrison gives the Twins another option in the designated hitter spot and can also fill in at first base or even the outfield on occasion. He batted .246/.353/.516 with a career-high 38 home runs in 2017 with the Rays.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Twins are showing interest in Logan Morrison.

Morrison would give Minnesota another option in the designated hitter spot and could also fill in on occasion at first base. The 30-year-old has had trouble finding traction on the market this offseason even after batting .246/.353/.516 with a career-high 38 home runs in 2017. The Twins could be able to land LoMo relatively cheaply.
Feb 25 - 10:57 AM

Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star writes that it is "unlikely" the Royals will sign free agent Logan Morrison.

Morrison is a Kansas City native and the Royals have been tied to him at various points this offseason, but it doesn't sound like the 30-year-old slugger is a serious consideration at this juncture. "We’ve always admired his ability," Royals GM Dayton Moore said of Morrison on Tuesday. "But again, I go back to the economic part of it. That’s very real to us. That’s very real." Maybe if the asking price falls further this story could change. Morrison posted a career-best .868 OPS, 38 homers, and 85 RBI over 149 games with the Rays in 2017.
