Marlins consider moving Morrison up in batting order · Notes, Quotes · Roster Report

With the top of the batting order struggling, manager Edwin Rodriguez isn't ruling out moving No. 6 hitter Logan Morrison higher in the lineup one day. But it's too early to make any changes now.

"I would like to keep him in the run-producing position because he's such a good hitter and he hits righties (.333) or lefties (.313) very well," Rodriguez said.

"But then again, who knows down the line? If it comes to that, yeah, we (might) have to make a change. If we want to get something, we'll have to give (up) something."

Morrison went into Wednesday leading the Marlins with walks (9) and on-base percentage (.457), all from the middle of the batting order.

Morrison has batted fifth in six games (7-for-22 with six walks), third two games (3-for-8 with a walk) and sixth two games (2-for-7 with a walk). Last year, the left-handed hitter batted mostly second in the order.
