Reds' Logan Morrison: Joins Reds on minors deal
Morrison signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Friday.
Morrison has played 997 games at the big-league level and is a slightly above-average hitter for his career, as his .238/.323/.425 line is good for a 105 wRC+. It's been several years since he was particularly useful, however, as he's hit just .183/.271/.365 in 133 games since the start of the 2018 season. He'll make at least one more attempt to get back to the majors and will look to impress at Triple-A Louisville, but expectations should be modest even if he does eventually earn a call-up....

Logan Morrison: Returns to free agency
Morrison rejected an outright assignment from the Brewers and elected free agency Friday.
The veteran slugger spent the first couple weeks of the season on the active roster, but he was designated for assignment earlier in the week after going 3-for-25 with one homer and eight strikeouts in nine games. Morrison will hope to secure another major-league opportunity after failing to stick with the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Logan Morrison: Designated for assignment
Morrison was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Monday.
Morrison started six of the Brewers' first 13 games but failed to distinguish himself, hitting .120/.214/.280 over 28 plate appearances. He's unlikely to be a particularly appealing candidate on the waiver wire, as he's a 32-year-old first baseman who owns a .183/.271/.365 slash line over the last three seasons. Luis Urias (illness) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Logan Morrison: Cracks first homer
Morrison went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Reds.
This was a game to forget for Milwaukee, though Morrison's homer off Trevor Bauer -- his first of the year -- qualifies as a bright spot. He was off to a miserable start with two hits and zero walks in his first six games. Ryan Braun (finger) is due back after the minimum, but Morrison will remain in the mix for starts at first base and DH against right-handed pitching.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Logan Morrison: Not in lineup for home opener
Morrison isn't in the lineup Monday against the White Sox.
Morrison could see some extra time as the designated hitter after Ryan Braun (finger) was placed on the injured list and Lorenzo Cain opted out, but he'll play a bench role Monday. Ryon Healy will serve as the designated hitter and lead off in the series opener.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Logan Morrison: Contract selected
Morrison's contract was officially selected by the Brewers on Tuesday.
The move confirms reports from over the weekend that Morrison had made the team's Opening Day roster. He's unlikely to be much more than a depth option at first base and designated hitter this season, as he's produced an above-average batting line in just one of his last five seasons.... See More ...

Brewers' Logan Morrison: Makes Opening Day roster
Morrison has made the Brewers' Opening Day roster, Robert Murray of TheScore.com reports.
He has impressed from Day 1 with Milwaukee, so this is not a surprise. With Ryan Braun (general soreness) questionable for Opening Day, Morrison could see starts at designated hitter early in the season while getting occassional starts at first base over Justin Smoak. The 32-year-old veteran hit .300/.364/.600 with three home runs and 10 strikeouts in 33 plate appearances this spring and has been impressing thus far in summer camp. He is not officially on the 40-man roster yet, but the Brewers have multiple players on the COVID-19 injured list, which will free up a couple spots for players like Morrison.... See More ...

Brewers' Logan Morrison: Big leagues or bust
Morrison will elect free agency if he does not earn a spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Morrison's contract permits him to seek opportunities elsewhere if he does not break camp with a spot on the Brewers' big-league roster, and he made it clear he will do just that. Morrison struggled mightily the past couple seasons, but he was making a good case for a spot when play was halted, going 9-for-30 (.300) with three home runs and seven RBI over 12 games this spring....

Brewers' Logan Morrison: Homers in spring game
Morrison went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's spring game against the Cubs.
Morrison is off to a good start this spring, reaching base six times over his first 13 plate appearances, but he is currently on the outside looking in at a roster spot after signing a minor-league deal over the offseason.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Logan Morrison: Headed to Brewers
Morrison signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Thursday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Morrison appeared in just 29 games for the Phillies last season, but the Brewers are hoping he'll be able to rediscover his power he had in 2017, when he hit 38 home runs for the Rays. The report doesn't explicitly say so, but Morrison should get the chance to compete in spring training as a non-roster invitee.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Logan Morrison: Set to join Phillies
Morrison will have his contract selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Rhys Hoskins is locked in at first base for the Phillies, so Morrison figures to serve as a left-handed bat off the bench for Philadelphia. The veteran slugger struggled across 95 games with the Twins last season (.186/.276/.368) but owns an impressive .308/.369/.640 triple-slash with 18 home runs in 61 games at Triple-A this season....

Phillies' Logan Morrison: Officially promoted
Morrison had his contract purchased from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
As expected, Morrison will join the Phillies ahead of Wednesday's game against the Cubs after putting together a .308/.369/.640 slash line with 18 home runs in 61 games at Triple-A. With Rhys Hoskins entrenched at first base, the veteran slugger figures to serve as a left-handed bench bat for the Phillies. Jake Arrieta (elbow) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Logan Morrison: Signs minor-league deal
Morrison signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Saturday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Morrison hit .289/.341/.658 with 15 homers in 43 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the Yankees system before opting out of his deal. He could eventually serve as a bench bat for the Phillies but is unlikely to be anything more than that unless Rhys Hoskins gets hurt.... See More ... See Less
Logan Morrison: Opts out of contract
Morrison opted out of his minor-league contract with the Yankees on Tuesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Morrison's contract allowed him to opt out of his deal if he wasn't on the big-league roster on July 1. Luke Voit hit the injured list with an abdominal strain Tuesday, but the Yankees will call on Mike Ford instead of Morrison. The veteran hit a poor .186/.276/.368 in 95 games for the Twins last season, but his .289/.341/658 line for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year could be enough to earn him a roster spot somewhere other than New York....

Yankees' Logan Morrison: Playing regularly at Triple-A
Morrison (hip) debuted at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on May 8 and has appeared in four games, going 2-for-14 with two runs and no RBI.
Morrison came to terms on a minor-league deal with the Yankees back on April 19, but he required additional time to build up at extended spring training while he worked back from offseason hip surgery. With appearances in four consecutive days, Morrison looks like he's back to full strength, but he'll likely need to improve his numbers before garnering serious consideration for a promotion to the big club. The Yankees still have multiple key hitters on the injured list, but the recent returns of Aaron Hicks, Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar probably hurt Morrison's chances of earning a callup anytime soon....

Yankees' Logan Morrison: Reaches deal with Yankees
Morrison (hip) signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees on Friday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
The Yankees have been decimated by injuries and could use any healthy and effective bat, but there's some question whether Morrison fits either of those categories. The veteran's 2018 campaign was cut short by season-ending hip surgery in August, and he failed to land with a team during spring training, so it's unclear how soon he'll be ready to play. There's no guarantee he'll provide much value if healthy, as he hit just .186/.276/.368 in 95 games for the Twins last season.... See More ... See Less
