Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and two runs scored in Friday’s victory over the Red Sox.

The third-inning blast against Rick Porcello was the first grand slam of his career. Morrison was terrible last April, but he’s not having that problem this year. He’s hitting .333 (12-for-36) with three home runs and 10 RBI through his first 11 games.
Apr 14 - 11:33 PM

Logan Morrison slugged a solo homer in Monday’s loss to the Yankees.

His eighth-inning blast was the only offense of the game against Michael Pineda and company. Morrison has swung the bat well in the early part of the season, hitting .333 (9-for-27) with two homers and six RBI through eight games.
Apr 10 - 3:56 PM

Logan Morrison went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Rays' 7-3 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

LoMo started his 2017 with a bang, plating two runs with a single up the middle in the bottom of the first inning before slugging a solo shot off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka in the third. Morrison is looking to bounce back from a mostly-disappointing 2016 that saw him bat .238/.319/.414 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI over 107 games.
Apr 2 - 5:43 PM

Logan Morrison, who is coming back from wrist surgery, doubled, walked and scored twice Thursday against the Pirates.

Morrison hit leadoff today. He's an option to do that for the Rays during the regular season, as is Corey Dickerson. Neither player has speed to offer in that spot, but the OBPs should be solid, at least against righties.
Mar 9 - 4:56 PM

Logan Morrison (wrist) is slated to serve as the designated hitter Wednesday against Team Colombia.

Morrison required surgery last September to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist, so the Rays are bringing him along slowly this spring. The hope is that he'll be ready to play first base later this week. Barring any setbacks, he should have time to get ready for the season.
Mar 7 - 11:41 AM

Rays re-signed 1B Logan Morrison to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The deal was agreed to last week and then finalized Tuesday after LoMo passed his pre-signing physical. Lefty reliever Enny Romero was traded to the Nationals to clear a 40-man roster spot. Morrison batted .238/.319/.414 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 107 games last season for Tampa Bay. The left-handed hitter will return in 2017 as the club's primary first baseman.
Feb 7 - 5:37 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Rays have agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with free agent first baseman Logan Morrison.

The Rays' 40-man roster is already full, so someone will have to be designated for assignment. Morrison had an up-and-down year for the Rays in 2016, hitting .238 with 14 homers and 43 RBI over 353 at-bats. With Brad Miller set to replace Logan Forsythe at second, it looks like Morrison will open the year as the Rays' starting first baseman. This deal shouldn't be a huge strain on Tampa Bay's budget and it's possible the Rays could look to add a right-handed complement for Morrison. Chris Carter, Mike Napoli and Matt Wieters are all available.
Feb 3 - 12:25 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that Logan Morrison's market is "starting to heat up."

There are plenty of bats available among first baseman and outfielder-types, but Morrison could potentially be had at a lower rate than a lot of them. The 29-year-old batted .238/.319/.414 with 14 homers and 43 RBI over 107 games this past season, though he was much better as the year moved along. He underwent surgery in September to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist, so he doesn't come without some health questions.

Logan Morrison will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist.

Morrison will be facing a 12-week rehab process. While the tear could have been worse, his health will be a question as he goes into free agency this offseason. The 29-year-old batted .238/.319/.414 with 14 homers and 43 RBI over 107 games this year.
Mon, Sep 19, 2016 04:16:00 PM

Rays placed 1B/DH Logan Morrison on the 60-day disabled list, retroactive to September 12, with a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jaff Decker. LoMo is out for the season and will have surgery soon.
Fri, Sep 16, 2016 04:02:00 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the tendon sheath tear in Logan Morrison's left wrist is "minimal."

Passan adds that Morrison will undergo surgery but is expected to resume swinging a bat in 12 weeks. It's good news, as a more severe tear could have resulted in a six-month absence, according to Passan. However, there will still be questions following LoMo into free agency, as he'll be coming off of wrist surgery and a season where he batted an underwhelming .238/.319/.414.

Logan Morrison has been diagnosed with a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist.

The result was determined following an MRI and exam by Dr. Doug Carlan. It has been recommended to Morrison that he undergo surgery, although he'll receive a second opinion first before making a decision. LoMo is set for free agency this offseason.
Fri, Sep 16, 2016 10:20:00 AM

Logan Morrison is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left wrist early this week in Tampa Bay.

Morrison suffered a strained left wrist Sunday in the Rays' series finale at Yankee Stadium and is likely done for the remainder of the 2016 season. The MRI will be to determine whether he needs surgery. An impending free agent, LoMo batted .238/.319/.414 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 107 games this season for the Rays.

Logan Morrison has been diagnosed with a strained left wrist.

The severity of the strain isn't known at this point, but this late in the year it certainly would seem to have the potential to be a season-ender. LoMo was on the disabled list earlier this season with a right wrist/forearm issue. The Rays should have more on his status after the game.
