Logan Morrison injures groin in second game at Triple-A

Logan Morrison ultimately decided not to file a grievance against the Marlins following his shocking demotion to Triple-A last week, which is probably the right move given that the grievance wouldn’t have gone anywhere and would have further angered a bunch of people in the process.

Instead he simply reported to Triple-A, where he went 3-for-8 with a homer and two doubles in two games before leaving last night’s matchup with Colorado Springs in the seventh inning with a groin injury.

No word yet on how much time, if any, Morrison will miss, but this definitely qualifies as flipping the old idiom by adding injury to insult. As long as he’s healthy by September 1 he figures to rejoin the Marlins once rosters expand.

    Yes, because the Marlins desperately need an outspoken, cocky .220 hitter.

      Where is Milton Bradley these days?

      are you really saying the Marlins can’t use a (correction!) .262, .800 ops athletic 23 year-old?? I think if he went out on the free market he’d have 31 teams calling him…he may tweet a bit much and apparently blew off a team event but the Marlins are handling the way you handle an immature 23 year-old…. But he is a sick 5-tool talent don’t be fooled with more potential and less attitude than Milton Bradley

    His groin, of all things. In New Orleans. Single. 23 years old. Comparatively wealthy.

    He has definitely offended the baseball gods.

      Unless he injured his groin off the field Gator??? It’s actually more likely if N.O. is anything like the HBO series True blood portrays it as.

        Ugh, yet another stupid anguished vampire show. If I were a terminator, I would ask to be sent back so I could whack Anne Rice in her crib.

    and that makes it, what…2-9 for the professional baseball club in Miami since Morrison got sent down? You know that the majority of players on that team have quit on that joke of a management group. They can’t wait to find a real team to play for, and it will play itself out as Hanley and anyone else eligible gets the hell out of Dodge. Congrats, Marlins…you really showed them players who’s boss.
