Logan Morrison hit a bases-loaded, go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning of Sunday's 3-1 win over the Brewers.
With two on and one out, the Brewers opted to intentionally walk Eduardo Escobar to bring up Morrison to face lefty reliever Boone Logan with the bases loaded. LoMo won the battle, lining a single off the right field wall to plate two. Morrison now has 17 RBI to go with a disappointing .211/.318/.376 line in 39 games this year. May 20 - 7:15 PM

Date:

Logan Morrison is not in the Twins' lineup Friday.

He's just getting a breather. Robbie Grossman is in the designated hitter spot.
May 18 - 5:06 PM

Logan Morrison ripped a solo home run and an RBI single in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

LoMo also drew a walk, reaching base in three of his four trips to the plate. It hasn't been an eye-popping turnaround because he's not hitting a ton of home runs, but Morrison has been pretty solid at the dish over the last month after a brutally slow start.
May 16 - 5:02 PM

Logan Morrison will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Cardinals.

It's an outside-the-box idea, but this will be his 21st career start out of the leadoff spot. Joe Mauer hit leadoff Monday, but he's sitting Tuesday with the DH unavailable under National League rules. Morrison was on the bench Monday.
May 8 - 11:22 AM

Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Morrison's double came in the seventh inning, and it was a big one as it scored two runs and gave the Twins a 3-2 lead. The first baseman is still off to an atrocious start with a .182/.277/.343 line offering evidence, but he's made more contact as of late, and it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone if his line improves dramatically over the coming months. He's too talented to be this bad for long.
May 6 - 6:21 PM

Logan Morrison went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in a loss to the White Sox on Thursday.

The homer was his third of the year and his second since April 27. In that span, the first baseman is 9-for-25 with two doubles and the pair of homers. His .184/.283/.322 line still shows the effects of a brutal cold snap he endured early, but he seems to be coming out of it. The 30-year-old should be a good source of power, if nothing else, going forward.
May 3 - 11:52 PM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Red Sox.

Morrison connected for a two-run homer off Luis Castillo in the bottom of the first inning before knocking in another run with a single in the third. This was his first multi-hit game of the season, which puts in perspective how much of a struggle it has been with his new team. We still think there will be better days ahead, especially on the power front.
Apr 28 - 12:42 AM

Logan Morrison is out of the Twins' lineup Thursday.

Joe Mauer will take a turn at DH, with Miguel Sano playing first base and Eduardo Escobar starting at third. Morrison is batting .113/.214/.177 through his first 70 plate appearances with Minnesota.
Apr 26 - 11:03 AM

Logan Morrison is not in the Twins' starting lineup on Saturday.

A day after slugging his first home run of the season, Morrison will take a seat against Rays' left-hander Blake Snell. Robbie Grossman is functioning as the designated hitter for the Twins and batting fourth on Saturday.
Apr 21 - 3:07 PM

Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 and hit his first home run as a Twin on Friday against the Rays.

He smacked a solo dong off starter Chris Archer in the second inning. Morrison has been comically bad so far this year, so maybe this is the start of a climb back to respectability. He has a .083 batting average with one homer and three RBI almost a month into the season. He hit .246 with 38 home runs and 85 RBI last year with the Rays and struggled to find a job in the offseason.
Apr 20 - 11:36 PM

Logan Morrison finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the Twins' loss to the Astros on Monday.

LoMo is now 1-for-23 (.043) with two walks to begin the season. He signed a one-year, $6.5 million free agent contract with Minnesota in Late February.
Apr 10 - 12:05 AM

Logan Morrison is out of the Twins' starting lineup on Thursday against the Mariners.

Robbie Grossman will get the start at DH and bat fourth versus Seattle left-hander James Paxton. Morrison is just 1-for-15 (.067) to open the season.
Apr 5 - 12:39 PM

Logan Morrison is out of the lineup on Monday for the Twins' game against the Pirates.

There's no designated hitter since the game is in Pittsburgh, so there's no room in the lineup for Morrison. Instead, the Twins go with: Brian Dozier 2B, Joe Mauer 1B, Miguel Sano 3B, Eddie Rosario LF, Eduardo Escobar SS, Max Kepler RF, Byron Buxton CF, Jason Castro C, and Lance Lynn on the mound.
Apr 2 - 10:45 AM

Logan Morrison went 2-for-3 with an RBI in a 3-1 victory over the Pirates on Wednesday in the Grapefruit League.

Morrison's RBI came on a single in the first. The 30-year-old first baseman is having a fantastic spring, and now has his Grapefruit League batting average up to .381.
Mar 21 - 8:49 PM

Logan Morrison singled and walked twice as the Twins' DH on Tuesday.

Morrison missed five days with a glute injury sustained last week.
