As first reported by’s Joe Frisaro, Miami has activated first baseman Logan Morrison from the 60-day disabled list. Chris Coghlan was put on the 15-day disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move due to nerve irritation in his right calf.

LoMo underwent surgery last September to repair a torn patella tendon in his right knee and needed the first two months of the 2013 regular season to fully complete his recovery. He is playing first base and batting fifth in his debut Sunday against the Mets.

Marlins first basemen have posted a collective .191/.259/.262 batting line this year. Morrison, 25, is a .250/.339/.442 career hitter in over 1,110 major league plate appearances.

    Should be exciting to see Tweeter bolted to first base where he can’t run his famous crop circle patterns under popups in the outfield. Now what do they do with the redoubtable Casey Kotchman after he went O-20 with one sacrificial RBI and one grudging walk?

    Existential question for Marlins home games–

    If a man hits a grand slam and no one is there to see it, is it still a grand slam?

    Andrew Dice Clay’s favorite player. “What are you, a Lo-Mo?”

    Tweeter got to score the winning run this afternoon on a booted double play ball by Daniel Murphy after killing a rally by getting hit with a batted ball on the basepaths two innings earlier. He went 2-4 with a walk and didn’t otherwise have a chance to fail to drive in a runner. Ah well.
