Looks like there's a very good chance Logan Morrison -- the Marlins' top hitter so far -- is headed to the disabled list. He is now wearing a fresh, white hard cast on his left leg. But the Marlins have not yet made any announcements.
And I just spoke briefly in the dugout with manager Edwin Rodriguez, who said Morrison has a sprained left arch, the cast will be removed on Monday, and the injury will be re-evaluated. With Donnie Murphy limited due to a bruised left knee, though, the Marlins are obviously playing short-handed, at least for the next four or five games, and a call-up would seem necessary.
Morrison sustained an injury to his left foot on Tuesday, had a MRI on Wednesday, and was expected to receive the results this morning.
Morrison was wearing a calf-length cast while being photographed by USA Today for a story they are working on about him. He was also walking on crutches. When asked by one of the photographers how long he thought he would be out, Morrison responded: "About two weeks."
Morrison is hitting .327 and leads the team with four home runs and 11 RBI.
Emilio Bonifacio is again getting the start in left field for tonight's game against the Pirates. Scott Cousins is starting in center.
