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.
Jun 28 - 1:14 PM

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.
Apr 25 - 12:27 AM

Logan Morrison is not in the Mariners' lineup Tuesday.

It appears to just be a routine day off. The Mariners are going with Willie Bloomquist at first base in LoMo's place. Rickie Weeks is starting in left field against lefty David Huff, as Dustin Ackley is riding the pine.

Logan Morrison hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat Saturday as the Mariners topped the Rockies 6-3.

Morrison hit an Eddie Butler offering out to center field for a two-run home run to start the scoring in the second inning. The oft-injured first baseman ends Cactus League play batting .250 (15-for-60) with two home runs and seven RBI.
Apr 4 - 6:06 PM

Mariners and 1B/OF Logan Morrison avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.725 million contract.

He can earn $50,000 more if he reaches 600 plate appearances. LoMo batted .262/.315/.420 with 11 homers and 38 RBI in 99 games for Seattle last season but finished the year strong. He'll handle first base in 2015.
Jan 16 - 2:58 PM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Morrison singled and scored in the second and fourth innings. Injuries marred much of the early part of LoMo's season, but he rebounded to hit .321 with six home runs over his final two months. Morrison finishes the year batting .262/.315/.420 with 11 homers and 38 RBI in 99 games.
