Morrison went 2-for-4 with three RBI from a two-run homer and a solo shot in Sunday's 9-1 win over the Tigers. He also drew a walk and scored thrice. Morrison has multi-hit efforts in three of his last six games and has been on a homer tear, launching four round trippers during that stretch. The slugging first baseman has also driven in nine of his 11 runs for the month over that span, and he's now just two homers away from equaling the career-high 23 that it took him 123 games to compile in 2011 while with the Marlins.
Morrison went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays. Morrison's 400-foot shot in the eighth brought the Rays within a run in a comeback attempt that ultimately fell short. The veteran infielder has round trippers in back-to-back games and four overall in the last 10 contests, while also leading the team in both homers (19) and RBI (43).
Morrison went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Blue Jays. The 29-year-old now has 18 homers on the season and is well on pace for a career high in that category, but perhaps the most impressive thing about Morrison's campaign to date has been his consistency -- after going yard on Opening Day he then went seven games before hitting another, which remains longest homerless streak so far in 2017.
Morrison is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners. Rays manager Kevin Cash will limit the amount of left-handed bats in his lineup with southpaw Ariel Miranda on the hill for the Mariners, so Morrison and Colby Rasmus are both receiving the day off. Morrison's .243 average leaves something to be desired, but fantasy owners are willing to accept mediocre production in that category so long as the first baseman continues to supply career-best power numbers. With 16 home runs just over a third of the way through the campaign, Morrison is just seven shy of matching his career high for a single season.
Morrison went 1-for-4 with a ninth-inning solo home run in Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Mariners. The veteran first baseman launched a 420-foot solo shot off Seattle closer Edwin Diaz in the ninth, a meaningless run in terms of the big picture but a shot that served as Morrison's fourth round tripper in the last eight contests. The 29-year-old is now just one homer away from matching his best total in that category over the last six seasons, and seven away from equaling the career-high 23 he hit with Miami back in 2011.
