Logan Morrison underwent arthroscopic knee surgery five weeks ago, but Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post reports that he “walked without a limp” while attending a charity event for his youth baseball camp yesterday.

Morrison told Capozzi that he’d taken his first post-surgery swings earlier in the day and “it felt good.” However, he’s still not at full strength:

There’s still swelling. It still doesn’t feel 100 percent, but I think if there are no setbacks I should be all right. If I have to miss a week of spring training–and I’m not planning to–that’s probably the most it will be.

Morrison still has about six weeks until Marlins camp and this weekend is his second annual LoMo Camp for a Cure, which raises money for the American Lung Association in honor of his father, who died of lung cancer in December of 2010.

    His limp is fine – it’s just that chip on his shoulder that needs some looking at.

    Welcome back Tweeter. I’ll forebear from chiding him today since he’s been laboring in a good cause. Feesh fans will recall the way his dad tried so hard to make it to his son’s games despite being in the final stage of terminal cancer. It was a spectacle at once both sad and inspiring.
