Morrison is starting at first base and hitting sixth Wednesday against the Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports. He was expected to return Wednesday, and that has come to fruition. Morrison made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday after missing six games with forearm tendinitis. A former top prospect in the Marlins' system back in 2010, Morrison appears to be on the verge of washing out of MLB, as he has performed below replacement level (-0.1 fWAR) for the second year in a row.
Morrison (forearm) is expected to return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Morrison has been suffering from a right forearm tendinitis injury that has caused him to miss the past seven games. He is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game, but said that he could be available to pinch hit. The forearm/wrist injury wasn't severe enough to put Morrison on the disabled list, and the 28-year-old should be good to go for Wednesday's contest.
Morrison (wrist) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. This will mark the seventh consecutive game that Morrison has missed while dealing with a right wrist injury. The team stated that Morrison was unlikely to land on the disabled list July 21, and there have been no other talks on the matter. For Tuesday's game, Steve Pearce will man first base.
Morrison (wrist) is reportedly "feeling better" and could find himself back in the lineup on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Although there had been speculation he might make it back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the A's, manager Kevin Cash opted to leverage Monday's off day as a way to buy Morrison two extra days of rest. The veteran first baseman looks likely to return for the first of a two-game set against the Dodgers on Tuesday barring any unforeseen setbacks.
Morrison (wrist) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Rays will hold Morrison out for his sixth straight game while he battles a right wrist injury, enabling Steve Pearce to slot in at first base. With Tampa off the schedule Monday, Morrison will have a little extra time to help with his recovery, but it's still uncertain if he'll be available for Tuesday's series opener with the Dodgers.
