Logan Morrison went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts as the Rays were shut out Thursday.
Bring back James Loney! Well, maybe not, but Morrison can't continue to bat second while he's hitting like that; he's batting .069 with a 14/2 K/BB ratio in 29 at-bats. Unfortunately, the other guy the Rays hit second during the spring, Brad Miller, has been nearly as bad (.077/.172/.115). The Rays might give Kevin Kiermaier or Steven Souza Jr. a look near the top.

Logan Morrison is batting second for the Rays in Monday night's game against the Blue Jays.

It's almost the exact same lineup the Rays used in Sunday's season opener, swapping in Curt Casali for Hank Conger at catcher. Here is the full Tampa Bay batting order for the second game between these clubs, with R.A. Dickey going for Toronto: Logan Forsythe 2B, Logan Morrison 1B, Evan Longoria 3B, Corey Dickerson DH, Desmond Jennings LF, Brad Miller SS, Steven Souza RF, Kevin Kiermaier CF, Curt Casali C. Drew Smyly is on the mound versus the lethal Blue Jays offense.
Apr 4 - 2:54 PM

Logan Morrison went 3-for-3 with a homer off Chris Tillman and a double on Sunday.

Morrison has followed up a four-game hitless streak by going 7-for-12 in his last four games. He's expected to start against right-handers this year, whether it's at first base or DH. He probably won't play much against lefties, not with Steve Pearce and Brandon Guyer on the team.
Mar 20 - 4:33 PM

Logan Morrison singled and walked in his two plate appearances versus the Nationals on Wednesday.

If the Rays had their way, they'd probably trade James Loney prior to Opening Day and go with Morrison as their first baseman against right-handers. But even if that doesn't work out, Morrison will probably still be in there at DH, though things could get crowded if Desmond Jennings shows he's healthy and ready to resume playing regularly in the outfield. Morrison could lock up his starting spot with a big spring.
Mar 2 - 4:33 PM

Logan Morrison was sent home from Rays' camp on Tuesday due to a fever.

Catcher Mayo Acosta was also sent home. Both players should be back to normal within the next couple of days.
Feb 23 - 11:45 AM

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

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.
Wed, Jul 29, 2015 08:50:00 PM

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.
Tue, Jul 7, 2015 01:33:00 AM

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.
