Logan Morrison is officially done for the season, as the Marlins transferred him to the 60-day disabled list today to clear 40-man roster space for Gil Velazquez’s call-up.

Last week Morrison was said to be “doubtful” to play again this year because of a knee injury that may eventually require surgery. For now he’ll try to rest the injury for a few weeks and see how he feels, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.

Morrison had a very strong half-season debut in 2010, hitting .283 with an .837 OPS in 62 games as a 22-year-old, but his OPS dropped to .797 OPS last season and fell even further to .707 this year. Carlos Lee is an impending free agent, so there’s some speculation that the Marlins will shift Morrison from left field to first base in an attempt to save his legs.

    Well, this does free up time for him to stake out breast feeding women at his local department stores and call them out on Twitter.

    Maybe we will be spared his “cleverness” for the rest of The Franchise episodes.

    Now Tweeter and his .146 RISP can knock off until February. Why he keeps putting off the work on his knee when he knows he’s going to have to cut into it eventually is hard to fathom. Meanwhile, the Feesh aren’t going to be able to get rid of him for any value in return (unless they plan to go on clinging to him as if he were the second coming of Joe D) until he gets the knee right and plays well enough to engage some other GMs’ interest. The Feesh notochord trust’s romance with this mediocrity is so difficult to fathom.

    The guy is an immature joke. He lacks not only the talent but also the where with all to be a true baseball player.
