Logan Morrison homered and doubled before being removed for a pinch-running Friday against the A's.
Corey Hart is playing better and Justin Smoak is back in the majors, but Morrison is still getting steady starts against right-handers, for better or worse. The homer tonight was his second in three games. Even so, he's hitting just .217 in 217 at-bats against righties this year, compared to .319 in 69 at-bats versus lefties. Sep 13 - 2:13 AM

Date:

Logan Morrison is back in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

Morrison missed Saturday's game due to stomach issues. LoMo has a hit in 20 of his last 21 games and is batting .324/.370/.432 over that stretch.

Logan Morrison is out of the lineup Saturday because of an illness.

Fortunately, the Mariners have walk machine Endy Chavez to fill in at DH. Morrison is day-to-day.
Aug 23 - 11:28 AM

Logan Morrison had a nice night at the plate in Friday's victory over the Tigers, going 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs scored.

Morrison singled home Kyle Seager to get the Mariners on the board and eventually came around to score in the three-run second inning. He's hitting just .231/.285/.361 with six homers and 24 RBI on the year, but has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks.
Aug 15 - 10:07 PM

Logan Morrison singled in three at-bats in Monday's 11-1 blowout win over Toronto.

Morrison extended his hitting streak to 12 games. In a cruel quirk (or perhaps a fitting quirk), only one of those efforts have been of the multihit variety. LoMo slashed a pathetic .180/.213/.270 in July, but he's improved to a .312 average in August, albeit with only two extra-base hits.
Aug 12 - 1:13 AM

Logan Morrison hit a three-run home run that was the difference in the Mariners' 7-3 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

Morrison hit a three-run shot in the third inning of Braves starter Julio Teheran, his first home run since July 11. It was his only hit in four at-bats. LoMo was plagued by a hamstring injury that kept him out until mid-June, and he's struggled to get on track at the plate since returning. He's got a modest seven-game hitting streak intact, a small sign of progress, and perhaps Wednesday's long ball will lead to a few more finding the seats in the near future.
Aug 6 - 6:51 PM

Logan Morrison doubled in Kyle Seager in the top of the 12th to help the Mariners beat the Angels 3-2 on Saturday.

28 innings in two days for the Mariners and Angels. Morrison's hit put Seattle up 2-1, and the Mariners went on to add an insurance run on Justin Smoak's squibber against the shift. They ended up needing it, as David Freese homered to start the bottom of the 12th. However, Charlie Furbush was able to finish up from there. Morrison is currently hitting .186 in 59 at-bats this month, so he could use a few more big hits to help his job security.
Jul 20 - 1:32 AM

Logan Morrison led the 12-3 bludgeoning of Boston on Monday, going 4-for-4 with two homers, three RBI and four runs scored.

He reached base all five times up, also walking. LoMo's second inning solo homer off starter John Lackey tied the game 1-1, and his three-run bomb off Chris Capuano in the seventh capped the game's scoring. It's difficult to understate how surprising this outburst was. Morrison raised his batting average from .164 to .215, he doubled his homers from two to four, and his OPS took on serious helium, rising from .522 to .712. Despite the outburst, Morrison (.245 career average and 44 homers in 1,356 at-bats) should be relegated to AL-only leagues.
Jun 24 - 1:48 AM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's tilt with Kansas City.

The home run was Morrison's fifth of the year. Despite the homer, Morrison is batting just .185/.241/.333 on the season. Those three RBI constituted more than half of his season total.
Jun 21 - 12:22 AM

Logan Morrison is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

He'll take a seat with left-hander Eric Stults on the hill for Seattle. Jesus Montero will start at first base Tuesday while John Buck serves as the DH.

Logan Morrison (head) is in Monday's lineup against the Padres.

Morrison left Sunday's game after he hit the wall of the Mariners' dugout with his bat and a piece broke off and hit him in the forehead. He suffered a cut as a result, but fortunately the silly incident won't keep him out of the lineup.
Jun 16 - 5:03 PM

Logan Morrison was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Rangers due to a cut on his forehead.

The injury doesn't appear to be serious and he should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two. John Buck, making his first career appearance at the position, took his place at first base.
Jun 15 - 6:07 PM

Mariners activated OF Logan Morrison from the 15-day disabled list.

Morrison is starting at first base for the Mariners on Wednesday night and could see regular starts there until Justin Smoak (quad) returns. Morrison was batting .150 with a .377 OPS in eight games before suffering a severe right hamstring strain in mid-April. He is not a good fantasy option.
Jun 11 - 5:56 PM

Logan Morrison (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

LoMo admitted to still not feeling 100 percent when he ran the bases during a simulated game Tuesday. However, he did some more running Wednesday and will be cleared to start the rehab assignment if he recovers well. Morrison has been sidelined since mid-April with a strained right hamstring.
May 21 - 12:20 PM

Logan Morrison (hamstring) is still not ready to begin a rehab assignment.

Morrison batted against James Paxton (lat) and Taijuan Walker (shoulder) during their simulated games Tuesday, but he remained less than 100 percent while running the bases. He won't be allowed to begin a rehab assignment until he's running full-out with no issues. "It’s just (a matter) of getting back at it," he said, "and trying to remember – it’s weird to say this – how to run. You just kind of feel uncoordinated when you haven’t done it in a while. It’s a little different when you go from the elliptical and then try to sprint outside. I’m trying to get the feel back."
