Logan Morrison had to leave yesterday’s game against the Rangers after he smashed his bat up against the dugout wall in frustration following a pop-up and one of the pieces broke off and hit him above the left eye. It was an ill-advised and embarrassing moment for Morrison, who required five stitches as a result. However, the good news is that he won’t have to miss any time.
Morrison will bat sixth and start at first base tonight against the Padres. Mariners fans will have to do hope that he’ll think twice before letting his temper get the best of him in the future.
Morrison, who was acquired from the Marlins over the winter, just came off the disabled list last week following a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old is hitting just .126 (5-for-37) with one home run and a .443 OPS through 13 games this season.
