Logan Morrison “felt a pop” in his foot Tuesday and an MRI exam revealed a sprained ligament that’s expected to keep him out for 2-4 weeks.

Morrison reacted to the news on Twitter, further solidifying his status as the best-tweeting MLB player:

Breaking news: sprained ligament in my foot out 2 to 4 weeks. Suck on that. Told u fantasy people not to pick me up.

As if that wasn’t endearing enough, he painted pinstripes on his cast to blend into the Marlins’ uniform:

Prior to the injury Morrison hit .327 with four homers and a 1.061 OPS in 15 games, building on a very impressive rookie half-season that saw him bat .283 with an .837 OPS in 62 games. Emilio Bonafacio replaced him in left field yesterday, which is a dramatic dropoff offensively.

    More under ATH tomorrow but the Morrison-less Feesh scrubeenies teed off pretty good on the Bucs tonight. The Iron Giant finally teed off and pumped a laser beam into the leftfield alternative dimensional warp between the lip of the second tier and the top of the fence. Ball sounded like a firecracker going off his bat. Rockies come in tomorrow and we’ll see if the boolpen can hold up.

    I love Morrison and wish he played for the Phillies. With all the other strong rookies last year, even other rookies on the Marlins (Stanton and Sanchez), Morrison has been totally overlooked.

      I agree. He’s a gamer and I don’t think we’ve even begun to see what he can do. He won’t be a real slugger in the 35-40 gopher range – he’s just not big enough – but I think he’ll be one of those guys who hits consistently in the .285-.310 range with lots of extra base hits, maybe 25 homers and 95-105 RBI or so – but also a good contact hitter whose at-bats will be productive one way or another.

      The cameras kept swinging back to him sitting on the bench with that hilarious pinstriped cast of his last night – wearing and pounding his glove most of the time and staring out at the field like some Phillip Nolan gazing at western horizon. This kid really wants to play. His hunger was palpable. May the Three Barons and the assembled Bodhisattvas send us more ballplayers with his attitude.
