Logan Morrison hoping to come off disabled list in mid-May

Logan Morrison has missed all of spring training as he recovers from knee surgery, but the Marlins first baseman is scheduled to take a big step in his comeback when he starts throwing, fielding, and running next week.

Morrison told Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald that he’s hoping to come off the disabled list by mid-May and described himself as “frustrated” by having to sit out so much action.

Casey Kotchman has made the Marlins after signing a minor-league contract and will open the season as the starting first baseman. It’ll be interesting to see what happens if Kotchman fares well, because while Morrison has played quite a bit of left field in the past the Marlins probably wouldn’t want him in the outfield post-knee surgery and Kotchman can only play first base.

    This is like Carnival Cruises waiting for Francesco Schettino to complete his probation. Once Mister .154 RSP comes back, second and third bases won’t have to feel lonely anymore.

      He really is amazingly bad with runners in scoring position. He should be hypnotized into believing the bases are always empty, he’s actually a good hitter with the bases empty.

        Although to be fair, as Jimmythemarlinsfan would no doubt point out, he’s had a pretty good spring so far.
