Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with two doubles and three total RBI in Saturday's win over the Indians.
Morrison clocked an RBI double in the second inning and a two-run double in the sixth inning to help the Twins pull away for an easy 9-3 victory. While this was a fine showing, the same cannot be said for LoMo's season as a whole. After bopping 38 home runs and driving in 85 runs while with the Rays last season, he's slashing just .194/.300/.350 with seven homers and 24 RBI in 61 contests this year. Jun 16 - 7:27 PM

Date:

Logan Morrison hit a two-run homer Sunday in the Twins' defeat of the Angels.

LoMo went deep off Angels starter Nick Tropeano in the bottom of the first inning. It was the seventh home run of the season for the 30-year-old slugger and brought his RBI total to 21, but he's slashing just .193/.301/.353 in 56 games overall.
Jun 10 - 5:30 PM

Logan Morrison is not in the Twins starting lineup on Saturday.

The slumping slugger will take a seat against left-hander Tyler Skaggs. Miguel Sano will slide over to start at first base in his place while Ehire Adrianza gets the call at the hot corner.
Jun 9 - 11:25 AM

Logan Morrison returned to action Thursday and had a double in four at-bats against the White Sox.

Morrison missed a couple of days with back soreness. He hit cleanup and played first base today.
Jun 7 - 3:40 PM

Logan Morrison (back) is available off the bench against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Morrison missed both games of the doubleheader against Chicago on Tuesday, and he's not in the starting lineup against the White Sox on Wednesday. There's a chance he might have sat against a southpaw like Hector Santiago anyway, but the pain is reportedly improving, and he likely won't need a trip to the 10-day disabled list.
Jun 6 - 5:36 PM

Logan Morrison (back) is out of the lineup against the White Sox on Thursday.

Morrison sat out both games of the doubleheader on Tuesday, and he gets another day off as he recovers from back stiffness. Robbie Grossman is the designated hitter in LoMo's place, and he'll hit sixth against Hector Santiago and the White Sox.
Jun 6 - 4:45 PM

Logan Morrison was held out of the lineup against the White Sox in their doubleheader on Tuesday due to back stiffness.

Morrison sat out game one with Eddie Rosario serving at DH, and Robbie Grossman was the designated hitter in his place in game two. Don't be surprised if Morrison gets another couple days off because of the injury, and a trip to the 10-day disabled list isn't out of the question.
Jun 5 - 11:21 PM

Logan Morrison is not in the Twins' lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Robbie Grossman will DH and hit at the top of Minnesota's lineup against Chicago right-hander Lucas Giolito.
Jun 5 - 7:28 PM

Logan Morrison hit a bases-loaded, go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning of Sunday's 3-1 win over the Brewers.

With two on and one out, the Brewers opted to intentionally walk Eduardo Escobar to bring up Morrison to face lefty reliever Boone Logan with the bases loaded. LoMo won the battle, lining a single off the right field wall to plate two. Morrison now has 17 RBI to go with a disappointing .211/.318/.376 line in 39 games this year.
May 20 - 7:15 PM

Logan Morrison is not in the Twins' lineup Friday.

He's just getting a breather. Robbie Grossman is in the designated hitter spot.
May 18 - 5:06 PM

Logan Morrison ripped a solo home run and an RBI single in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

LoMo also drew a walk, reaching base in three of his four trips to the plate. It hasn't been an eye-popping turnaround because he's not hitting a ton of home runs, but Morrison has been pretty solid at the dish over the last month after a brutally slow start.
May 16 - 5:02 PM

Logan Morrison will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Cardinals.

It's an outside-the-box idea, but this will be his 21st career start out of the leadoff spot. Joe Mauer hit leadoff Monday, but he's sitting Tuesday with the DH unavailable under National League rules. Morrison was on the bench Monday.
May 8 - 11:22 AM

Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Morrison's double came in the seventh inning, and it was a big one as it scored two runs and gave the Twins a 3-2 lead. The first baseman is still off to an atrocious start with a .182/.277/.343 line offering evidence, but he's made more contact as of late, and it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone if his line improves dramatically over the coming months. He's too talented to be this bad for long.
May 6 - 6:21 PM

Logan Morrison went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in a loss to the White Sox on Thursday.

The homer was his third of the year and his second since April 27. In that span, the first baseman is 9-for-25 with two doubles and the pair of homers. His .184/.283/.322 line still shows the effects of a brutal cold snap he endured early, but he seems to be coming out of it. The 30-year-old should be a good source of power, if nothing else, going forward.
May 3 - 11:52 PM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Red Sox.

Morrison connected for a two-run homer off Luis Castillo in the bottom of the first inning before knocking in another run with a single in the third. This was his first multi-hit game of the season, which puts in perspective how much of a struggle it has been with his new team. We still think there will be better days ahead, especially on the power front.
