Morrison is a candidate to be part of a leadoff platoon this coming season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "We're trying to narrow (it down),'' manager Kevin Cash said. "I don't think we have, as it stands right now, a defined leadoff guy. We're trying a couple different options. ... We're still trying to work through do we have a guy versus left and a guy versus right."

Morrison is apparently a contender for the left-handed side of the platoon, with Corey Dickerson also under consideration. Potentially working against the veteran is his track record in April, a month in which he's slashed .157/.199/.196 over the last three seasons and .223/.291/.331 for his career. The 29-year-old would bring a solid power component to the top of the order but hasn't notched an OBP over .315 in any of the last three campaigns.
