Rays and 1B/OF Logan Morrison avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.2 million contract.
He can earn $25,000 more in plate appearance incentives. Morrison batted just .225/.302/.383 for the Mariners last season, although he did slug 17 home runs. He's in line to serve as the Rays' designated hitter in 2016, although he could also fill in at first base and the outfield. Jan 15 - 12:28 PM

Date:

Rays acquired OF/1B Logan Morrison, SS Brad Miller and RHP Danny Farquhar from the Mariners for RHP Nate Karns, LHP C.J. Riefenhauser and OF Boog Powell.

LoMo had an up and down 2015 season in Seattle, hitting 17 homers -- his highest single-season total since 2011 -- while batting a pedestrian .225/.302/.383 overall. He'll presumably bat near the middle of a Rays order thirsty for power hitters. He's arbitration-eligible for the last time this winter, so the 28-year-old will certainly be motivated to make a good impression in his new digs.

Logan Morrison (family) is back with the Mariners on Wednesday night in Kansas City.

LoMo flew home on Tuesday morning to welcome his first child with his wife Christie. "I thought hitting homers was the coolest thing," he told reporters Wednesday afternoon. "This is a little cooler."

Logan Morrison has been excused from the Mariners following the birth of his first child.

LoMo's wife Christie gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday morning. The Mariners are currently on a nine-game, three-city road trip, which complicates matters. Morrison will probably be back in a couple of days.

Logan Morrison came off the bench to walk and then hit a three-run homer Wednesday in the Mariners' 8-3 win over the Astros.

Morrison also homered in his lone at-bat Tuesday. He has 15 homers this season, six of which have come against the Astros. He's likely going to resume playing against most righties with Jesus Montero down (and nearly out).

Logan Morrison is likely to see less playing time when he returns from his thumb injury.

According to beat reporter Bob Dutton, the Mariners want to take "a long look" at Jesus Montero. Montero has been arguably the best hitter in minor league baseball this season and has played well since getting promoted (5-for-14 with three RBI). Morrison's .221 average this year is his lowest in six major league seasons. He could be headed for the bench if things don't improve quickly.

Logan Morrison was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a minor thumb injury.

It's unclear what exactly he did to injure the thumb, but it's believed to be a minor ailment. He's considered day-to-day.

Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Mariners dropped Monday's contest against the Tigers.

Morrison's three-run blast off of Alfredo Simon in the fifth inning gave the Mariners a 5-3 lead, but it didn't last long. The first baseman has been subpar at the dish this year considering his position, as he is hitting .236/.308/.392 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI.

Logan Morrison came off the bench Sunday to fly out as a pinch-hitter.

Morrison didn't start against the Angels because of a sore back. It seems like he'll still be safe to use this week.

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.

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.

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.
Sat, Jun 13, 2015 07:56:00 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.
Tue, Jun 9, 2015 11:13:00 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.
Thu, Jun 4, 2015 09:40:00 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.
