The Marlins moved Logan Morrison to the 60-day disabled list last week, essentially ruling him out for the rest of the season, but now we can officially close the book on his disappointing campaign.

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Morrison said earlier today that he’s scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on his right knee next Wednesday. He’ll need about six months of recovery time, but should be ready for spring training next year. He had surgery on the very same knee last offseason.

Morrison, 25, batted just .230/.308/.399 with 11 home runs, 36 RBI and a .707 OPS over 93 games played this season. Given his knee issues over the past year and his poor defense in left field, it would be wise for the Marlins to use him exclusively at first base in 2013.

    It would be wiser for the Feesh to stop pretending that this irremediable mediocrity of a ballplayer will ever blossom into anything worth protecting like a franchise player, instead of unloading him for some midlevel prospects as soon as he proves his knee is sufficiently recovered to play again. We’ve had several years of Morrison’s anemic (mononuclear?) RISP performances with and without the bum knee. Enough already.

    He’s a douche bag for the comment about breast feeding. So stupid he is!

    I have a theory that, as an art dealer, Loria is accustomed to seeing themes and ideas that are abstract rather than actual. I think that may be why he holds onto players (Hanley, LoMo, etc.) who fail to exhibit skills.

    Also, he is used to his collection appreciating in value over time rather than breaking down faster than the plot of Michael Bay movie.
