Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison told reporters earlier this week that he is aiming to return from his sprained left foot soon after he is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list.

He was being overly optimistic.

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, “it could be another couple weeks” before Morrison is cleared for full baseball activities. The 23-year-old Twitter phenom is still battling some soreness and the Marlins aren’t going to let him push it for fear that he might make the problem worse.

Morrison was batting a cool .327/.424/.636 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 15 games before the injury. Emilio Bonifacio has been manning left field on most nights in his absence.

    Not to be insensitive to the man’s injury, but his Twitter game has really stepped up since the injury.

    With Morrison playing, I think the Feesh go 9-0 on the 7-2 homestand they just concluded. They need him badly – and just how badly, I suspect, is going to show on the road trip that begins tomorrow in Cincinnati.

    They also need to hope that John Baker will be ready to play sooner rather than later. Their inexplicably eighteen million dollar baby, John Buck, is reverting to his pre-2010 form at the plate and the guy who was supposed to be a “huge upgrade in terms of power” at C is looking luckier and luckier every time he makes contact at all. His at-bats are becoming parodies of the quantum double slit experiment.
