Logan Morrison is finally making steady progress in his recovery from September 2012 knee surgery.

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Marlins first baseman is scheduled to begin playing in minor league rehab games on Monday with the High-A Jupiter Hammerheads. He’s spent the past week-plus taking at-bats in games at extended spring training and has reported no issues so far.

Morrison could rejoin Miami at some point in early June if everything goes smoothly. The 25-year-old hit .230/.308/.399 with 11 home runs, 15 doubles and 36 RBI in 93 games last season.

Greg Dobbs has been serving as the Marlins’ starting first baseman in recent weeks.

    doesnt really matter…he kinda sucks anyway. didnt he get demoted last year for not performing?

      Yeah. He sucks. This is the fish we’re talking about though. He’ll probably slide right back into the lineup.

      Nope. He went on the DL. He was demoted the year before.

    This big buildup to the return of Tweeter is really a mighty labor that will parturate a mouse. What does anyone think a guy with a .160-range RISP is going to do for a team with a .160-range RISP except make it more now like it ever was before?

    Anything is better than wasting additional playing time on Chris Coghlan.

      The playing time being wasted on Coghlan is probably excess playing time. I doubt if Scrooge McLoria would waste playing time he had to pay for.
